Our values in the

code of conduct

Our Code of Conduct is based on our core values -authenticity, expertise and inspiration- and our Deeply Inspired Philosophy. Our Code of Conduct provides guidance for ethical decision-making and behaviour. It reflects our commitment to doing what is right and following the law.

Authenticity in our Code of Conduct refers to transparency in our business practices; it means acting with honesty and integrity and building trust for our employees, our partners and our consumers.  We are dedicated to creating transparent processes, procedures and support mechanisms to fulfill our commitment. 

Expertise in our Code of Conduct refers to the depth of knowledge in our métier and empowerment through education.

Expertise means we delve into all aspects of our métier in order to deliver the very best results, making the most qualified recommendations and decisions for the business.

Inspiration in our Code of Conduct is the connection of our vision, our mission and core values.

The connection of these three elements defines why we exist, where we are going and how we will get there. At Gübelin, we know connection is a source of inspiration.
