At Mughal Steel, we believe the best way to build and to maintain trust is to conduct every element of our business according to the highest standards of integrity. Our ability to do so rests on the behavior of those who work here, from employees to our chief executive to our directors. To that end, we select our people based not just on their skills, accomplishments and potential, but also on their principles and values.
A commitment to integrity and ethical behavior is a critical factor in our decisions regarding professional advancement and compensation.
It is impossible to predict the various different unique circumstances our people will face during their careers. As such, the policies outlined in this Code should be viewed as the baseline of expected behavior. While ethical behavior requires us to comply fully with all laws and regulations, “compliance” with the law is the minimum standard to which we hold ourselves. Those who work with us honor not just the letter of existing laws, but the spirit that underpins and informs them.
Our Code of Conduct consists of the following principles which all directors and employees at Mughal Steel are required to apply in their daily work and observe in the conduct of company’s business.
Every director and Employee must comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including those related to insider trading, financial reporting, money laundering, fraud, bribery and corruption.
Every Director and Employee is prohibited from indulging in actions or relationships that create personal conflicts of interest unless approved by the Company. It is important that every director and employee carefully considers whether any of their activities or relationships, including business or volunteer positions outside the Company, could cause a conflict (or the appearance of a conflict) with the interests of the Company. Additionally, personal gain and advantage must never take precedence over ones obligations to the Company. No Director or employee must ever use or attempt to use their position at the Company to obtain any improper personal benefit for themselves, their family member(s) or any other individual or group.
Every Director and Employee must deal fairly with our customers, suppliers, competitors and each other. No one at the Company may seek competitive advantage through illegal or unethical business practices. Taking unfair advantage of anyone through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any unfair dealing practice is a violation of this Code.
Every Director and Employee must maintain the confidentiality of the information with which they are entrusted, including complying with information barrier procedures applicable to our business. The only exception is when disclosure is authorized or legally mandated.
We do not tolerate any type of discrimination prohibited by law, including harassment. We value diversity as an important asset that enhances our culture, helps us satisfy customers well and maximizes return for shareholders. For us to excel, we must create for our people an inclusive environment that welcomes and supports differences and encourages input from all perspectives.
Directors and Employees are prohibited from making or soliciting political contributions or engaging in political activities.
Everyone should protect the Company’s assets and ensure their efficient use. All Company assets should be used for legitimate business purposes only.
All employees share a responsibility for the Company’s good public relations particularly at the community level. Their readiness to help with religious, charitable, educational and civic activities is accordingly encouraged provided it does not create an obligation that interferes with their commitment to the Company’s best interests.
The Company has strong commitment to the health and safety of its employees and preservation of environment. The Company perseveres towards achieving continuous improvement of its Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) performance by reducing potential hazards, preventing pollution and improving awareness. Employees are required to operate the Company’s facilities and processes keeping this commitment in view.
Commitment and team work are key elements to ensure that the Company’s work is carried out effectively and efficiently. Also all employees will be equally respected and actions such as sexual harassment and disparaging remarks based on gender, religion, race or ethnicity will be avoided.
The Company strictly prohibits retaliation against anyone who reports in good faith a possible violation of the Code, no matter whom the report involves.
We pledge to comply and enforce the basic principles of Code of Conduct and prevent its violation. Any employee observing any violation or abuse of this Code of Conduct may bring the same to the notice of the Management in writing.
The aim is to become a Company that is accepted by the society. Throughout our business process, we impact the society in many ways, striving to be a good corporate citizen and believing in giving back to the society. For community investment and welfare, the Company acknowledges its responsibility towards society. Giving away our share of kindness is not a part of a philanthropic endeavor, but a larger social responsibility that the society itself has entrusted upon us.
Throughout our business process we gladly look for ways through which we may extend a helping hand towards the society. In an attempt to fulfill this responsibility we have successfully launched, social and health welfare projects.
