The Environmental Investment Fund of Namibia (EIF) has a zero tolerance for prohibited practices which include fraud, theft, bribery, misconduct, nepotism, corruption and any form of inappropriate, and unethical conduct. This applies to all of EIF staff members, third party suppliers, executing entities and counterparts collaborating with the EIF in its activities. Employees and representatives of the EIF are under obligation to, at all times, practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling their responsibilities and to comply with all applicable policies, laws and regulations.
The EIF put in place the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (The Code) that outlines the Fund’s policy on zero tolerance on Prohibited Practices and explicitly specifies forms of practices, conduct and activities which are prohibited by the EIF. The Code further obliges all employees and persons acting on behalf of the EIF, to at all material times, uphold the highest standards of integrity and professionalism and to uphold the EIF’s core values, standards and principles.
