CMS of Metrostav a.s.

Metrostav a.s. proudly asserts its status as a modern, successful company for which shaping corporate culture and compliance is an indispensable part of its long-term strategy. We believe that our efforts in this area will effectively reduce the risk of unethical or illegal conduct and improve the overall perception of our company internally and externally.

Metrostav a.s. has long had a comprehensive compliance management system (CMS), which aims in particular at preventing, detecting and responding to conduct that may be considered unethical, illegal, contrary to good morals or company rules, as well as contrary to our corporate culture.

Since 2015, the basic pillar of CMS has been the Criminal Compliance Programme (CCP), referred to as the Metrostav CCP Programme, which also includes an anti-corruption management system. The purpose of the CMS is to prevent illegal and other unfair conduct in Metrostav a.s. with an emphasis on already identified risks (e.g. conflict of interest or corruption).

Following actions that caused the criminal proceedings against Metrostav a.s., we have also introduced a number of technical, organisational and/or personnel measures within the self-cleaning process to remedy the consequences of criminal activities or misconduct and to prevent future violations.

In early 2022, the CMS was updated to meet the requirements of ISO 37301 Compliance management systems and ISO 37001 Anti-bribery management systems. In April 2022, Metrostav a.s. successfully received certification of its CMS compliance with the ISO 37301 Compliance management systems standard and its anti-corruption management system with the ISO 37001 Anti-bribery management systems standard.

Metrostav a.s. considers the CMS to be an integral part of its management system and all its activities and implements a number of measures to ensure and further develop the necessary CMS standard.
