“Successful businesses are built on trust, and the key to earning — and maintaining — the trust of our employees, customers and other stakeholders is to demonstrate ethical behavior and integrity in the way we do business.”

Governance & Compliance

Our commitment in this effort is defined in Curia’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct. Published in six languages — English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin and Spanish — the code applies to all employees, directors, officers, and agents, and includes expectations of conduct from third-party partners.

We have adopted an Anti-Bribery, Anti-Corruption, UK Bribery Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Policy. This policy strictly prohibits bribery or corruption of any kind in our business activities. The policy sets forth our expectations with respect to anti-corruption compliance and provides guidance for employees and business partners on anticorruption laws in the countries in which we operate.

Curia issued an Anti-Money Laundering Statement outlining its policy, processes and procedures aimed at preventing money laundering in connection with its business operations.

Any employee or third party with concerns regarding Curia’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct, related policies and standards, or accounting or auditing concerns is encouraged to contact our global ethics hotline, which is available via telephone or online Curia has a strict non-retaliation policy against anyone making a good faith report of any suspicions or violations of our policies.
