Code of Conduct
This is a summary of the comprehensive Trifleet Leasing Code of Conduct.
Trifleet is the largest privately owned and owner-managed global tank container leasing company.
Working with us means doing business with a team that passionately takes ownership. Our brand promise is “Committed to Sustainable Excellence” and that is what we live up to.
b. We don’t tolerate harassment
We do not tolerate any action, conduct or behavior which any individual or group of individuals finds unwelcome, humiliating, intimidating or hostile. As an international company, we are particularly sensitive to behaviors that may be acceptable in one culture but not in another.
c. Equal opportunities
We pursue diversity, respect all employees equally and value the contributions of each person and role.
We do not discriminate in recruitment, selection, compensation, training, job assignment, promotion, termination or any other employment-related activity with respect to a person’s race, color, nationality, religious belief or affiliation, sex, age, ethnic or national origin, marital or family status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or current or past disability.
d. Substance abuse is strictly forbidden
Substance abuse undermines our work, productivity and safety. At Trifleet Leasing working under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or abuse of prescription drugs is strictly forbidden.
e. We provide a safe and healthy workplace
With this we prevent harm to, and promote the health of, all employees. It is the responsibility of each and every one us to comply with health and safety regulations, prevent any injuries at work and do avoid violent conduct.
This means that we will not do or allow anything that is known or could have been known to be in conflict with the interest of Trifleet. Nor will we act or omit to (re)act in conflict with any law or regulation in countries where the Trifleet tank containers are employed or might be employed.
b. We won’t get involved in illegal or socially unacceptable activities
This means we only conduct business with business partners who are known to follow the law and regulations and act professionally in their line of business. Neither will we do business with third parties known not to support acceptable rules and standards or socially accepted practices.
c. We protect the environment by preventing or minimizing the environmental impact of our activities and products
This starts with following the cradle-to-cradle approach for the design and manufacturing of tank containers. It includes doing everything that is in our power to prevent tank container contents from spilling. And also applies to single workplaces, when e.g. considering the environment before printing a document.
d. We don’t offer or accept gifts and hospitality that would put our clients or our own independence in question
We do not solicit or accept any cash, gifts or other benefits if by doing so we no longer appear to act independently from the opposite party. We will not offer any gratitude, benefit or gift to clients or vendors that might harm them or Trifleet in any way.
e. We compete within the framework of applicable competition laws
We refrain from directly or indirectly engaging in any discussion or activity that constitutes anti-competitive behavior or in any way violates anti-trust provisions. We make our own business decisions, free from understandings or agreements with competitors or suppliers that restrict competition. Bribery and any other forms of unethical business practice are prohibited.
Trifleet Leasing is committed to the highest standards of openness, integrity and accountability.
Our Whistleblower Policy enables Trifleet’s employees, vendors and service providers to raise any concerns they may have about Company-related wrongdoings or irregularities, internally and at a high level. It also enables them to disclose information that they believe shows malpractice or impropriety. This Policy is aimed at covering concerns that are in the public interest and that may, at first, be investigated exclusively but could then lead to other procedures, such as disciplinary action. These concerns include:
– Financial or non-financial malpractice or impropriety or fraud
– Failure to comply with a legal obligation or statutes
– Dangers to Health & Safety or the environment
– Harassment and abuse and misrepresentation of power and authority
– Discrimination on the basis of gender, race, age, religion or disabilities
– Criminal activity
– Improper conduct or unethical behavior including a conflict of interest without disclosure
– Attempts to conceal any of these
The Policy is designed for the eventuality that individuals have a reasonable suspicion about wrongdoings or irregularities within the Company, the result of which affects – or could affect – public interest. These suspicions must be based on reasonable grounds, arising from knowledge acquired by the individual(s) through work activities. The Policy does not cover: disputes with the Company; disagreements about decisions taken that do not conflict with the public interest; or malpractices in which the Company is not involved. Furthermore, hearsay or gossip are not considered as sufficient basis for disclosures under this Policy.

b. We respect people’s privacy and the confidentiality of personal information
We will only acquire and keep personal information that it needs to operate effectively or to comply with the law. This means that we treat all employees, clients and other personal data with care and respect, while guarding against inappropriate access and disclosure.
