Kesko has zero tolerance towards all forms of bribery. This also applies to the operations of Kesko's business partners.
As a Kesko business partner, I do not promise or pay bribes and illegal payments to authorities or anyone else to secure the Company's business or its development. I am committed to not advising, inciting or enticing anyone to accept or offer bribes through third parties or directly.
You are a Kesko business partner in a construction project pertaining to the zoning of a plot for a Kesko store site. On behalf of Kesko, you contact the public official in charge of zoning. He or she asks your employer to buy an advertising slot in a publication by his or her child's football team. What do you do?
I decline the request, as a working relationship does not justify sponsorship. All sponsorship deals must be geared towards clear business aims. Besides, buying the slot might give rise to a suspicion of bribing a public official.
