Ethical behaviour is an essential part of the way we choose to operate and function. Beyond the existing standards and regulations, our code of conduct extends to include ethics, trust and values.Our commitment to being a responsibly governed organisation only serves to strengthen stakeholder confidence and sets the benchmark of conduct for the entire organisation as contained in AEON’s Code of Conduct Policy.Overseeing AEON’s corporate ethics and integrity is a working committee which comprises the Chief Governance Officer, Chief Human Resources Officer and Head of Human Resources. A quarterly report is submitted to the Risk Management Committee and the Audit and Risk Committee.

Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy
We are committed to the prevention, deterrence and detection of fraud, bribery and all other corrupt business practices. In line with amendments to the MMLR of Bursa Securities in relation to anti-corruption measures, AEON established an Anti-Bribery and Corruption (“ABC”) Policy in accordance with the new Section 17A of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2018 on corporate liability for corruption with effect from 1 June 2020.
