Crisis Management

A crisis is a sudden internal or external event or set of circumstances which has the potential, especially if not properly and timely addressed, to significantly affect an organization and inflict serious harm to the well-being, credibility, reputation, and possibly even the existence, of a business. Three elements are common to a crisis: a threat to the organization, the element of surprise and a short decision time, and - this may be the fourth defining quality of a crisis - the need for change.

Envu has established a situation-based lean and effective Crisis Management process that includes clear roles and responsibilities and process-related organizational requirements company-wide. Crisis Management includes actions in four areas: crisis prevention, crisis assessment, crisis handling and crisis termination. The aim of this Crisis Management Policy is to be well prepared for any crisis and to ensure a rapid and adequate response to the crisis, maintaining clear lines of reporting and communication in the event of crisis and agreeing to rules for crisis termination and moving back to a normal state of business or moving to a business continuity program.

Our Crisis Management Plan is designed to allow the organization to address a sudden internal or external event / crisis that requires immediate execution / action for the organization. The Business Continuity Management planning that is in place at the sites, etc. is the ongoing operational preparation, training, execution or response measures that are developed for risks pre-defined by the organization that will be helpful in the event of a crisis.

Envu will not tolerate corruption.

“Corruption is recognized to be one of the world's greatest challenges. It is a major hindrance to sustainable development, with a disproportionate impact on poor communities and is corrosive on the very fabric of society.” (United Nations Global Compact)

Corruption is a crime in many countries, and the company and its employees can be prosecuted for violating the law whether or not the corrupt practice took place within the governing jurisdiction. In addition, publicity surrounding participation in corrupt activity could severely harm the company´s reputation, the public´s trust in Envu, and consequently, the company´s economic standing.

This Anti-Corruption Policy is designed to help colleagues worldwide to avoid potential corruption issues.

It has been drafted to provide support and guidance. It should help us to avoid risks and meet today’s compliance challenges.

Business Continuity Management

Internal or external disruptive events like natural disasters, pandemics, strikes, power outage, supplier disruptions, etc. have the potential to cause severe longer-term operational disruptions to Envu’s global or local businesses. Without suitable preparation, risk exists for the inability to deliver products and services, which can lead to financial or reputational damages, or cause a failure to meet legal and regulatory obligations that could in turn have a major impact on our financial stability, or even going out of business, dependent upon different circumstances.

In line with Envu’s vision of “Healthy environments for everyone, everywhere”, Business Continuity Management (BCM) plays an important role. Envu strives to ensure its Business Continuity (BC).

The objective of BCM is to provide the capability to adequately prepare for and react to disruptive events ensuring the ability to deliver products and services in scope to our customers.

BCM ensures that, based on a diligent scoping process and Business Impact Analysis (BIA), Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) are defined. It provides a level of assurance that the organization can either continue to provide products and services to comply with given market or regulatory obligations and reduce financial and reputational impact or recovers from the disruptive event in a systematic and timely manner. BCM also supports the existing Crisis Management organizations with additional reaction strategies, and more specifically, Business Continuity Plans (BCPs), that can be activated during or immediately after a disruptive event that is being managed in accordance with the existing Envu Crisis Management Process described in the Crisis Management policy.

Note: Envu BCM will be developed in the near future. Therefore, this Policy brings the general concept of the future program, pre-approved by Envu Leadership Team on the Policy issue date

The objective of this Anti-Fraud Policy is to implement processes, procedures and controls that will aid in the prevention and detection of fraud against Envu while ensuring a fair treatment of matters pertaining to fraud.

This is to be executed with documented and formalized policies, procedures, processes, and other supporting safeguards as needed.

Fraud is defined by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners as “any activity that relies on deception in order to achieve a gain.

This Anti-Fraud Policy is applicable to any and all acts or omissions that constitute fraudulent or suspected fraudulent activity that includes, but is not limited to, monetary items such as cash, funds, proprietary information, intellectual properties, material of value, content, data, assets, properties, consumables, office articles and supplies including stationery, deals, contracts, bribes, gifts, favors, influencing, undue prioritization, etc., for personal gains either individually or collectively by its employees and/or stakeholders of Envu.

Data Privacy

As information becomes more available, more valuable and is stored in more places, individuals have an understandable interest in protecting the privacy of information about them. Envu commits itself to protecting individuals’ Personal Data. Envu’s ability to operate effectively depends on a positive relationship with our stakeholders. They entrust Envu with their Personal Data and expect that Envu will protect their privacy. Meeting that expectation is a key principle and critical to the success of the company.

Data Privacy laws vary widely from country to country, with some countries having no Data Privacy legislation at all, some having Data Privacy protection scattered in several different laws and others having comprehensive Data Privacy laws. Data Privacy is an essential right in many countries where Envu does some business. Because Data Privacy is an important topic, and especially because there is not a single global standard, a group-wide approach to Data Privacy is required to establish an appropriate common standard that adequately protects Personal Data while allowing for the secure, legal exchange of Personal Data and efficient execution of our business.

This Policy explains the general principles that govern the management and protection of Personal Data at Envu.
