Code of Conduct - Helpline
GASCO operates in a way that adheres to the highest ethical standards and strives to conduct business only with those who share GASCO’s commitment to such standards.
GASCO has developed a ‘Code of Conduct’ which reflects the required Conduct for Individual Behaviour and those with dealings with GASCO are expected to comply. The compliance with this ‘Code of Conduct’ will help uphold the integrity and reputation of GASCO.
GASCO has established an Ethics Helpline (‘Helpline’) for the reporting of improper acts which violate this Code; it comprises a phone and internet facility. The Helpline is operated by the GASCO Compliance Officer who acts an independent party.
Users of the Helpline may choose to remain anonymous and can speak to the Compliance Officer without any fear of retaliation.
GASCO commits to ensure reports will be followed up professionally, confidentially and that appropriate action will be taken. Further clarification is given in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
