Corporate policies 

3B is committed to contributing to a sustainable world, where companies enter in a balanced growth model that creates value for their customers, employees, shareholders, partners, and the communities in which they operate. To do so, we follow the principles of responsible business conduct promoted by the OECD and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

To support our ambition to be a meaningful player in society at large and for the planet, we have developed corporate policies related to Health and Safety, Environment, Human Rights, Treatment of Personal Data and Quality, as well as a Business Code of Conduct applying to all 3B staff members and representatives. As we also want to play a positive role throughout our value chain, we encourage our suppliers to ensure that their practices comply with the principles promoted by the United Nations, the OECD and 3B.

Business Code of Conduct

3B's Business Code of Conduct describes the ethical standards and practices that 3B and each member of staff undertake to respect and promote.


In compliance with the EU Whistleblower Directive, 3B has implemented a whistleblowing system, readily available to all stakeholders both within and without the company, as stated in the 3B Whistleblowing Policy.

In accordance with our ethical rules and the legal provisions in force, a 3B alert form and a dedicated e-mail address are available and allow you to file a report in complete confidentiality. The report will be processed in accordance with legal requirements and within the allotted timeframe, or more quickly if possible. 

It is important to note that only serious and factual reports related to topics impacting the general interest are admissible. Any other report or communication to 3B should be carried out via our contact page or by contacting a 3B representative directly. In any respect, it is important to carefully assess the veracity of the facts observed and the comments made in order to avoid being considered defamatory: are the reported facts contrary to law, regulations or the company’s Code of Conduct? When making your report, please make sure to describe the harmful situation accurately and in good faith, to indicate its severity level, and to include relevant supporting documentation if available. In order to respect confidentiality and the legitimate rights of all parties involved, all reports will be subject to rigorous analysis and a detailed internal audit. The confidentiality of the identity of the author of a disinterested report made in good faith will be preserved when he or she denounces acts contrary to our code of ethics, criminal acts or offences of which he or she has personal knowledge.
