Autorité des marchés financiers gives Roche Group subsidiary Roche Construction the green light to enter into public contracts

Quebec City, December 12, 2014 – Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) has granted Roche Construction authorization to bid on public contracts in Quebec—confirmation that the Roche Group subsidiary meets the strict integrity requirements the public has the right to expect.

“We have implemented a number of measures to ensure that all our employees, including those at Roche Construction, meet the highest standards of integrity. The AMF’s seal of approval attests to the best ethical and governance business practices Roche has introduced—practices that are now ingrained in our company culture,” says Roche Group President and CEO Alex Brisson.

Specifically, Roche Construction employees must subscribe to a code of ethics and conduct on an annual basis and navigate within the strict mechanisms set up by Roche Group.

Roche Group’s main entity—Roche Ltd., Consulting Group—obtained AMF approval in November.
