1/ Ethical guideline for Belgatech’s Consultants

Belgatech Consultants, both individually and as a group, are being followed regarding their conduct, since they represent the technical experts.

Within this context, it is advisable for BELGATECH to consider the ethical accountability of its Consultants’ professional activities.

Belgatech wishes to testify to its awareness of the role and responsibility of its Consultants in our society. It invites its Consultants to consider the ethics of their own actions every day.

This document represents a code of conduct. Belgatech asks its Consultants to take on their responsibility. The text has been composed around a set of ideals. The goal consists in translating them in good conscience to actual real-life situations. By testifying realistically to a number of ideals, Belgatech wishes to stress its belief in the value of ethical conduct whilst expressing understanding for situations where Consultants are obliged to choose “the lesser evil”…

By necessity, a document such as this must remain fairly general. It is impossible to draw up a complete and concrete survey of all the situations Belgatech’s Consultants may be confronted with.

Belgatech wishes that this can occur in Consultation with colleagues, other co-workers and parties involved.
