Millicom Anti-Corruption Programme
The Millicom Anti-Corruption Programme
The Company has a zero tolerance policy approach to any form of bribery and corruption.
We acknowledge that bribery and corruption risks are a concern worldwide and that such risks can undermine the health and viability of the Company and the environments where we operate, can greatly damage our reputation and can result in severe fines and criminal proceedings.
The company has various necessary and appropriate interactions with public officials and authorities as a natural part of its day-to-day operations. Millicom recognizes that it operates in markets that suffer from lack of transparency and have a recognized bribery and corruption risk.
We strive to adopt the necessary measures to prevent bribery and corruption and effectively manage these types of risks.
The company has published a Code of Conduct and an Anti-CorruptionPolicy with clearly established rules that govern these situations and interactions.
The Company supports adopted international conventions against bribery and corruption. We are bound by all local anti-corruption legislation of the countries where we operate, as well as the extra-territorial applicability of certain foreign laws, including but not limited to the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act (UKBA).
