French infrastructure group Egis said today that it has become one of the first engineering groups in France to be certified across its global operations as compliant with the ISO 37001 anti-bribery standard following an audit of its management systems.
Since the standard’s publication in 2016, around 1,000 companies have received the certification, Egis said.
“We are particularly proud to be among the first French engineering groups to be certified ISO 37001 on a global level,” said the company’s chief executive, Laurent Germain.
“This certification is the result of several years of work to continuously improve our anti-corruption practices and reinforce our culture of business ethics,” he said, adding it would help “to retain the trust of our many clients and partners all over the world, but also to gain access to new markets and thereby help us reach the targets set by our French and international growth strategy”.
Awarded by company Eurocompliance, the standard helps organisations introduce the measures to prevent, detect and address bribery by establishing a culture of honesty, transparency and integrity.
