EXISTENCE OF ETHICAL CODE
The Company applies the Company's culture and character in every activity and is committed to achieving its vision and mission by applying GCG practices through the application of the Company Code of Conduct. The Company Code of Conduct (CoC) is used by all employees of the Company as a foundation in forming and managing consistent behavior in accordance with the regulations applicable within and outside the Company. The Code has been refined in 2017 through Presidential Decree dated 5 January 2017 Number: 001A/SK/Board of Directors-HIT/I/2017.
COMMITMENT IMPLEMENTATION OF ETHICS CODE
Implementation of this code of ethics is an attempt to:
a. Provide understanding to all Company persons that the Company operates in an honest and open manner, resulting in a good working environment, with low employee turnover and improved welfare.
b. Being part of a particular community, because maintaining good relations is fundamental to the Company's long-term success in achieving social welfare and improving the economy.
c. Being part of the marine transportation services business community, because the implementation and commitment to this code of ethics can support the Company in various court cases, as well as being a part of good risk management, and able to build goodwill and reputation of the Company.
The Code of Ethics applies to all of the Company's employees at every level of the Company's organization. Employees, Directors and Board of Commissioners are required to sign a statement of compliance commitment to the Company Code of Conduct.
