What the Code is for
SberBank’s Code of Corporate Ethics helps employees and managers timely identify the situations contradicting SberBank’s ethical principles.
The Code of Corporate Ethics is based on the bank’s mission and values ensuring an honest and fair attitude to the members of our team, customers, partners, as well as compliance with laws and internal policies.
Compliance with ethical principles at the workplace
We treasure our reputation, follow ethical principles, and discharge the obligations we assumed at all times and under any circumstances. We treat our co-workers, customers, partners, and everyone else with whom we come into contact with respect and goodwill. We bear the responsibility for the outcomes of our work and the workplace environment.
Adherence to ethical business practices
We have zero tolerance for non-ethical practices of doing business in any form and require that all members of our team strictly comply with laws and the bank’s internal policies.
We want our customers, employees, partners, shareholders, and investors to have full and balanced information regarding our operations. We strive to be open and pro-active in our communications. We protect the confidential information concerning our customers, other information protected by law, and data that might impact our competitive edge.
