4. Ethics and compliance

Excellent financial performance does not conflict with high ethical standards. The DNA that drives business efficiency and compliance is the same: 100% say-do ratio, focus on solving issues rather than pushing them out or cutting corners, and a relentless drive for process improvement. Barco’s reputation and continued success depends on the conduct of its employees as well as its business partners. That’s why we put great emphasis on building a company culture in which ethical conduct and compliance with Barco’s policies and the applicable regulations are at the core of how we do business.
