In 2019, the Riri Group adopted an Organisation and Management Model (MOG) that provides for an sophisticated system of internal controls, aimed at preventing employees from committing of any of the crimes provided for by Legislative Decree 231/2001 while performing their duties.
To do this, Riri has appointed an external Supervisory Body, whose task is to monitor the correct application of the Model. Adoption of the MOG is a new milestone in Riri’s road to transparency, one of the values the Swiss Group firmly believes in and which has always been the basis of its stakeholder relations.
Riri’s experience was illustrated to the students of the Master in Corporate Governance of the Faculty of Economics of Università Cattolica by Michele Perini, the Group HR Manager.
During the webinar “La responsabilità da reato degli enti e i modelli organizzativi ai sensi del D.Lgs. 231/2001” (Criminal liability of entities and organizational models pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001), Michele and Piergiorgio Weiss, Criminal Lawyer and Chairman of the Supervisory Board, shared the milestones and reasons that led Riri to adopt the MOG. They discussed the early effects on corporate governance, and current issues such as whistleblowing.
Particular attention was paid to the general meaning of the MOG, which is an integral part of Riri’s vast, company-wide social and environmental sustainability project, that is in continuous improvement.
The talk delivered to the Università Cattolica students is part of Riri’s alignment with the SDG objectives, in particular with number 17 that provides for the support and promotion of initiatives and partnerships, both public and private, based on the experience gained in the sector.
