Our code of conduct is an explicit description of the standards and values for behavior within the Beurs van Berlage.
As a conference and event centre, the Amsterdam Conference Centre Beurs van Berlage is a meeting place for everyone. As a meeting place we offer a warm welcome to people of all nationalities, ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, political signature and so on. This applies to our customers and guests, but also to our own employees and companies with whom we do business.
We are convinced that all people are equal. This is how we approach others. Equality does not mean that people are equal. On the contrary, people are different and we consider diversity a great asset.
Human rights, as enshrined in the universal declaration of human rights, are always respected, also in the entire chain of goods and services that the Beurs van Berlage provides. The Beurs van Berlage is dependent on many third parties in this regard. We hold partners and suppliers to comply through a clause in contracts we enter into with them. If we find deviations ourselves, we will not fail to enter into a discussion and, if necessary, terminate the cooperation.
Our policy is that we will not accept violations of human rights within our company. Not with customer, guest, supplier or partner. Of course we follow the legislation, but we are also aware that the full background of the parties mentioned is not always completely clear and may be at odds with our primary objective of being a meeting place for everyone.
We have a strict anti-bribery and anti-corruption policy. Accepting or permitting bribery attempts is not allowed.
