Code of Conduct
The Marelli Code of Conduct is an essential part of our commitment to operating as an ethical and responsible global citizen and forms a major part of how we work and our global corporate culture. It applies to all our stakeholders and offers a clear framework around how we interact with customers, suppliers, communities, governments and employees.
The Code of Conduct aims to ensure that all members of Marelli Group’s workforce act with the highest level of integrity, comply with applicable laws and build a better future for our Company and the communities where we run our business.
Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
As a socially responsible corporate citizen, at Marelli we are committed to conduct ourselves in a way that considers and promotes our social and ethical responsibilities.
In line with this approach, we oppose modern slavery in all of its forms, including human trafficking, forced or compulsory labour, bonded labour, servitude and child labour. We unequivocally support the human rights of our workforce and also the workforce of our global suppliers, and believe that everyone deserves a life free from slavery. We recognise the role that businesses can play in combatting these exploitative crimes and we will continuously seek to implement and improve our policies and procedures to ensure that all forms of slavery are not present within our operations or supply chain.
The following Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of Section 54 of the United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act 2015.
As required by the Act for certain companies operating in the United Kingdom, this statement sets out the steps that have been taken to address the risks of slavery and human trafficking being present within its operations and supply chain, and has been adopted as their respective slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st December 2022.
