OFFICINE GRAFICHE MUZZIO S.p.A (hereinafter “O.G.M”) is a company operating since 1962 in the sector of printing, binding and packaging of high quality catalogues.

With the resolution of the Board of Directors O.G.M. adopted the present document that constitutes the Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics defines the principles that inspire the activity of O.G.M and that must guide the behaviours of its employees and of all those subjects with whom O.G.M. comes into daily contact (hereinafter “Code”).

The rules of this Code are addressed to all those who collaborate on an ongoing basis with OGM, in particular to managers, department heads, employees, consultants, directors, statutory auditors and auditors of the same, as well as to all those who, directly or indirectly, permanently or temporarily, establish relationships and collaborative relationships – anyhow they are named – with O.G.M. or operate in the interest, in the name or on behalf of the latter: all the aforementioned subjects are collectively defined here as the “Recipients” of the Code.

The employees of O.G.M. carry out their duties inspired by the general principles of mutual respect and fairness, professional rigor, altruism and honesty, always in full compliance with all applicable legislation.

O.G.M. interacts with its employees according to the principles of enhancement of merit, fairness, transparency, harmony and truthfulness, trying as far as possible to also enhance the personal inclinations of each individual and using them on the basis of their abilities, personal skills and attitudes. The primary objective of O.G.M. is to constantly guarantee the absence of any form of discrimination between employees, respecting their differences due to age, gender, marital status, nationality, religious belief, sexual orientation, physical disability or any other characteristic.

The Code is brought to the attention of employees by delivering a copy of it to each of them when possible or in a special dedicated space in the workplace (company intranet – shared folders). All employees are therefore required to know and behave in compliance with the Code, refraining from conducts contrary to it; furthermore, they will eventually inform third parties with whom they come into contact about the provisions of the Code and they will request them its observance. This Code or the other policies and procedures of O.G.M. will be updated or modified when necessary and employees are required to inquire about any updates or changes (information that is made known through the dedicated network folders or company intranet) and to adapt to any updates/changes.

The honesty and the professionalism of employees are decisive values and conditions for the achievement of the objectives of O.G.M.

O.G.M. requires all employees to be aware of the laws and regulations that apply to their business and that the business activities are conducted fairly.

The compliance with the provisions of this Code must be considered an essential part of the contractual obligations of the employees of O.G.M. and, therefore, the violation of the Code may lead to the imposition of sanctions, including dismissal, or actions for damages.

All the Employees must:

  • know and observe the present Code;
