Suppliers shall ensure that all their business dealings are conducted with integrity, honesty and transparency. Accordingly, CAG does not tolerate, and no supplier shall engage in, any form of fraud, corruption, bribery, cheating, extortion, embezzlement or other improper behavior.
Suppliers shall never directly or indirectly give, promise or offer any gratification, inducement or reward to any of CAG’s directors, officers, employees or representatives to induce, obtain or retain an improper or unfair business advantage, or otherwise improperly influence decision-making.
Suppliers will promptly disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest between a Supplier and CAG or between any Representative and CAG. For example, if a Supplier’s employee is a family relation (e.g. spouse, children, parent, sibling) to an employee of CAG, or if a supplier has any other relationship with an employee of CAG that might represent a conflict of interest, the Supplier should promptly disclose the fact to CAG.
From time to time, Suppliers that have been identified by CAG shall, when requested, promptly furnish a certification in the form set out in Appendix A to this Code and provide information that CAG requests in connection with its periodic revalidation of Supplier business relationship with CAG.
