AMG Graphite maintains a compliance culture that focuses on business ethics as a management task, minimising risk and ensuring a sustainable future. To this end, we systematically work on compliance processes that take ethical standards into account across all business activities.
Our specially appointed Compliance Officer monitors compliance with regulations, organises training courses on ethics and provides information on the values and code of conduct of our parent company, AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V.
The Chief Compliance Officer of AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V., in turn, is in close contact with our local Compliance Officer, taking care of the interests of the GK Group, communicating challenges and risks to the management, and constantly working on the optimisation of compliance processes. In addition, AMG relies on external legal experts and specialists from various disciplines to advise the GK Group on significant changes to the regulations.
AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V. actively participates in the United Nations Global Compact – an initiative for companies that are compelled to align their business activities and strategies with ten generally accepted principles in the fields of human rights, labour, the environment and the fight against corruption. In addition, AMG supports the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) for improving governance in resource-rich countries. This initiative reviews and publishes corporate payments and government revenues from the oil, gas and mining sectors. The GK Group’s work in Mozambique is relevant to the objectives of the EITI.
We adhere to internationally applicable anti-corruption standards and also ensure that our employees can raise concerns or complaints regarding compliance with the regulations at any time through the AMG "Speak Up and Reporting" policy.
