He added: “In today’s fast-changing business environment, transparency and strong corporate governance measures are imperative. The Code of Business Conduct reflects our commitment to uphold the highest ethical values at the workplace, and thus benefit all our stakeholders. I would like to thank the different internal departments for their efforts in putting the Code together, especially ENOC Group Internal Audit for taking the lead in the project.”
