OMV aims to require everyone who acts on our behalf to comply with our values and rules of behavior. These are clearly set out in the OMV Code of Conduct, which acknowledges OMV’s social and environmental responsibility within our sphere of influence. OMV Petrom assumes the provisions of Code of Conduct from OMV Group.
UN Global Compact
By signing up to the UN Global Compact (UNGC), OMV has committed itself to implementing the ten UNGC principles on human rights, labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption. The OMV Code of Conduct sets forth clear rules of behavior in accordance with the UNGC. Its principles guide OMV’s behavior toward its internal and external stakeholders and serve as the basis for many other of our policies and guidelines, such as our Business Ethics Directive.
From 2013 OMV adhered also to UNGC and WEP and from 2015 became member of Global Compact Network Romania (GCNR).
