In November 2020, ZTE passed the ISO 37001:2016 certification for its anti-bribery management system and obtained China’s first ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) accredited ISO 37001:2016 certificate issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
This tremendous, first-of-its-kind accomplishment is a great recognition of ZTE’s anti-bribery management system, continuous robust investment of resources and efforts in this construction over the years. It further demonstrates that ZTE has become a global leader in anti-bribery compliance.
Mr Shen Nan, Chief Legal Officer of ZTE, stated that the ISO 37001 standard is the wisdom of top global experts in anti-corruption, anti-bribery, and corporate governance. By implementing this standard and passing the certification, ZTE hopes to maintain vitality in constructing its anti-bribery management system and carry out business with global partners based on mutual trust.
In the 2018 sustainability report of the independent evaluation organization, ZTE’s anti-corruption and anti-bribery compliance policies and program both reached 100(full marks). In 2019, ZTE was included among the FTSE4Good Index Series for a second consecutive year since its first inclusion in 2018, among them, the Anti-Corruption Compliance scores 5.0 (full marks). In 2020, ZTE Corporation was once again selected for the index, and further consolidated its leading results with a perfect score of 5.
ZTE will remain committed to promoting all its employees’ integrity and self-discipline, and joining hands with all partners to create a fair, just, corruption-free, and transparent business environment, striving to enable connectivity and trust everywhere.
