Code of Ethics
The Code of Ethics sets out ethical values and business principles applicable to all employees of NetLink NBN Trust and its subsidiaries (the "Trust Group"). All employees of the Trust Group are expected to observe values such as integrity, responsibility and accountability while carrying out their duties and responsibilities in their daily dealings.
The Code of Ethics also provides for standards of practice expected of all employees when dealing with conflicts of interests, confidential information, health, safety and environment concerns, and other matters.
In line with the Trust Group policy to maintain high ethical standards, we have adopted a fraud policy to facilitate the development of controls that will aid in the detection and prevention of fraud against the Trust Group. The fraud policy provides guidance on acts which may constitute fraudulent conduct and sets out procedures to be followed by the Trust Group and its employees when fraud is detected or suspected.
The Trust Group has adopted a whistle-blowing procedure which provides a platform for employees, external parties such as customers, suppliers, contractors and applicants for employment, and the general public, to raise concerns in good faith about any perceived irregularity or misconduct within the Trust Group, without fear of retaliation.
