Adif’s Code of Ethics

The Adif Code of Ethics, approved by the Board of Directors, aims to formalize the expected standards of integrity, responsible and transparent behavior of all the people who work at Adif, in the day-to-day performance of their duties and in their professional relationships.

The Code aims to translate Adif's corporate values and principles into desired behavior, taking as a starting point the culture of the organization, the legislation that is applicable to it and the entity's commitment to ethics and transparency.

Fight against fraud and corruption

The Institutional Declaration of the fight against fraud, made by the President of the entity, demonstrates the commitment to maintaining the highest standards in compliance with legal, ethical and moral standards and to adopting the principles of integrity, impartiality and honesty, implementing a policy of zero tolerance towards fraud and corruption.

The main objective of the institutional declaration is therefore to promote an ethical culture within the organization that will deter any type of fraudulent activity and make it possible to prevent and detect such activity.

The organization also has a Corporate Anti-Fraud Policy, being committed to good governance under the principles of ethics and transparency. It is also committed to ensuring the proper management of community funds, especially those stemming from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, through a specific anti-fraud plan approved by the Board of Directors on January 25, 2022.
