Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct (Code) serves as a guide for conducting ourselves ethically and in compliance with the law as we perform our work, everywhere, every day. It explains the standards we are expected to follow in living our core values, as well as specific laws, regulations, and policies that apply to us.
All full-time, part-time, and temporary employees have a duty to follow our Code and comply with the company’s policies and procedures, and with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations where GAR and our subsidiaries conduct business. Our Code also applies to our Board of Directors with respect to all activities they engage on behalf of the company. Any consultants, contractors, and other business partners working on behalf of the company are expected to uphold the principles of this Code.
Responsible Tax Policy
As spelt out in our Code of Conduct, GAR and our subsidiaries are responsible to follow all of the laws that apply to our business activities. Having operations in several countries, GAR is subject to taxes in numerous jurisdictions, and it is, therefore, essential to have a tax policy that prevents any form of tax violation. Aligned with GAR’s Code of Conduct, we are committed to adhering to all applicable tax regulations in countries in which we operate, including meeting all applicable reporting obligations timely and accurately.
