Conflicts of interest
At Saab, trust is vital. It is of great importance to everyone who deals with Saab, regardless of their role or position as a customer, government official, supplier, journalist or another third party.
Saab’s Code of Conduct imposes the duty to always keep personal interests apart from company business and to be transparent about potential conflicts of interests. Saab employees, directors and officers are expected to act at all times in the best interest of Saab and never let business dealings on behalf of Saab be influenced by personal considerations or relationships.
Saab has defined a number of situations that may give rise to a conflict of interest. These include outside jobs, family ties or close personal relationships, financial interests and board memberships. These situations are not exhaustive but everyone is instructed to be mindful about identifying situations where there may be a potential for division of loyalty between Saab’s interest and personal interests.
Anyone at Saab confronted with a situation that may constitute a conflict of interest or which others could reasonably perceive as a conflict of interest, must report it to his or her superior, to HR or to Group Legal Affairs who will assess whether there is a conflict of interest and how to best address it.
Our policy on conflicts of interest is an important part of creating and maintaining the trust that is the basis for our business.
