Ethics & Sustainability

“Certain of obtaining results which can foster benefits and advantages for all the stakeholders involved, ISS Palumbo believes in its own active role towards corporate social responsibility and operates by promoting the principles of respect for people, the environment and the community.”

This approach to sustainability is based on the main objective of producing a responsible profitability, providing environmentally friendly services and ensuring an ethical corporate conduct.

The ISS Palumbo GROUP undertakes to carry out its activities in compliance with the law, as well as with loyalty, professional correctness and economic efficiency.

ISS Palumbo promotes a sustainable global economy and is committed to respecting human rights, to promoting fair working practices, to protecting the environment and to fighting corruption.

The Code of Ethics of the Group is part of the ISS Palumbo Standards and was adopted to disseminate the values, corporate culture and behavioural rules which form the basis of its business management and of relations with all stakeholders.

ISS Palumbo has adopted an Organisation, Management and Control Model pursuant to L. Decree 231/2001 which defines a set of principles and procedures aimed at preventing people from committing the offences envisaged by the Decree.

The Model constitutes the foundation of the ISS Palumbo governance system and it implements the process of disseminating a corporate culture based on fairness, transparency and legality.

The Legality Rating is a recognition conferred by the Competition and Market Authority (AGCM), which rewards companies that operate according to the principles of legality, transparency and social responsibility. This recognition indicates compliance with the law by companies and the degree of attention in the proper management of its business in a transparent way.

ISS Palumbo obtained the Legality Rating, with a score of two “stars” +.

“Obtaining the legality rating and the high score recognized to us confirms our commitment to the path of continuous improvement, undertaken in compliance with all company interlocutors, such as Employees, Suppliers, Customers, Banks and Institutions”.

ISS Palumbo proudly shares the certification obtained during the day spent with Legambiente in Calambrone (Pisa) for the redevelopment of abandoned waste.

Our employees have collected over 300 kg of waste abandoned along the coast and the dunes, contributing to an important action to protect and enhance the marine territory.

With their commitment, 2 of the 17 goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for sustainable development have been achieved.

During the most critical period of the pandemic our company has experimented a new way of work thanks to the adoption of Remote Working.

The «intelligent» reconsideration of the modalities by which the working activities have carried out during the past months, has allowed the company, by means of a new organization, to survive. All this consequently had an impact both on environmental sustainability and on the savings in time and costs given by the reduction of home-work trips, as can be seen from the study that was carried out.
