BioGaia’s business must be run in a sustainable manner. Complying with local rules and laws, ensuring good business ethics and taking a clear stand on respect for human rights are obvious. Furthermore, it is important that the company takes responsibility for the environmental impact of operations. BioGaia’s most important ethical principles, sustainability ambitions and commitments, that the employees are expected to follow, are set in the internal Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct can be found here .



Anti-corruption and anti-bribery

To guide employees, BioGaia has a policy for anti-bribery and anti-corruption. The policy includes the company’s definitions of bribes, corruption and conflict of interest as well as overall guidelines for what is acceptable behaviour and also reporting channels to be used when unacceptable behaviour is noticed. The issue has high priority and the person responsible for this work is a member of Executive Management.

Training for employees in anti-corruption is held annually. The training includes open discussions to give employees a chance to discuss challenging situations and identify risks. BioGaia’s target is that all employees in the Group should receive training.
