Responsible Business Practice
Gearbulk has implemented several policies and codes to support our Sustainable approach to business. These policies give guidance for all stakeholders, including employees and suppliers on how we should be doing business. They include:
Anti-Bribery and Corruption
As a member of the Maritime Anti-corruption Network (MACN), we cooperate with like-minded industry companies to promote compliance with anti-corruption laws and eliminate corrupt practices. Our Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery policy requires all employees to be trained in relevant legislation and company procedures. To ensure their awareness and knowledge remains current, a training module has been developed on intranet for all employees to undertake annually.
Global Anti-Trust Policy
" We at Gearbulk are dedicated to conducting all of our business activities with the highest level of ethical standards, therefore compliance with all laws is a fundamental part of our corporate values"
