Corporate Documents

The Code of Conduct identifies the values on which YOOX NET-A-PORTER bases its corporate culture as an instrument of guarantee and success for its stakeholders.

The Code of Conduct defines not only the values underpinning the corporate culture, but a standard of conduct for all of YOOX NET-A-PORTER’s associates.

The daily activity of whoever represents the Company or works on its behalf must always be marked by ethical compliance, which is based on:

  • impartiality and equal opportunity;
  • legality and honesty;
  • professionalism and trust;
  • prevention of potential conflicts of interest;
  • correctness and transparency.

From directors to outside associates, at all levels of the corporate structure, it is widely known that ethics in conducting business is an essential prerequesite for YOOX NET-A-PORTER’s success.

To protect its image, the expectations of its shareholders and the work of employees, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP has adopted an advanced Organizational Model, which ensures conditions of accuracy and transparency in the conducting of business

In an effort to strengthen its environment of control and the rules instituted, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP has adopted its own organizational model, as provided for by Legislative Decree No. 231/2001.

Components of the Model

In addition to the Model document, the following are integral parts thereof:

  • the Corporate Code of Ethics;
  • the organization and system for assigning proxies and responsibilities to people working within the Company in areas at risk for potential crimes;
  • the identification of Areas Potentially at Risk for crimes, by applying a solid risk assessment methodology;
  • the system on policy, procedures and internal controls aimed at guaranteeing adequate transparency and traceability of the decision-making and financial processes, as well as the behaviours of corporate actors;
  • training activities and connected information;
  • the disciplinary system and the relative sanctioning mechanism to be applied if the Model is violated;
  • the establishment and operation of the Supervisory Body.

Purposes of the Model

Establishing an organizational model has the purpose of:

  • documenting the macro characteristics of the Company’s prevention and control system, which is aimed at reducing the risk of commiting crimes related to corporate activity;
  • to make all those working in the name of and on behalf of YOOX NET-A-PORTER S.p.A. aware of the existence of a sanction system which affects anyone violating the provisions indicated therein, even potentially terminating a contract;
  • confirming that YOOX NET-A-PORTER S.p.A. does not tolerate unlawful behaviours.

Supervisory body

Duties of the Supervisory Body

The Supervisory Body is asked to:

  • oversee the effectiveness of the Model;
  • conduct a close examination as to the adequacy and efficacy of the Model in preventing, as much as possible, behaviours which do not conform to the corporate directives, culture and rules;
  • conduct an analysis about maintaining within the time limit, requirements of stability and functioning of the Model;
  • see to the necessary dynamic updating of the Model, by making specific suggestions, in the event that the analyses performed render it necessary to make corrections and adjustments;
