This Anti-Corruption Policy for PJ Diesel Engineering A/S and Representatives prohibits corruption of all officials (clients, vendors, partners, all PJ Diesel Engineering A/S business relations), which means paying money or giving something of value to an official to obtain an improper benefit. This Policy similarly prohibits the payment of bribes or kickbacks in commercial transactions that do not involve officials. Corruption is prohibited by the laws in almost every jurisdiction of the world.
This Policy also prohibits money laundering, which is the process of concealing funds that have been illegally obtained.
PJ Diesel Engineering A/S, and all of its subsidiaries and joint ventures worldwide, requires its channel partners (for example, resellers, advisors, original equipment manufacturers, and distributors), consultants, lobbyists, and other third-party representatives (collectively, “PJ Diesel Representatives”) to comply with this Policy. PJ Diesel Engineering A/S and Representatives acting on behalf of PJ Diesel Engineering A/S can expose PJ Diesel to liability under anti-corruption and anti–money-laundering laws, including the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”). Further, corruption promotes poverty, hunger, disease, and crime, and it keeps societies and individuals from reaching their full potential. Corruption is one of the leading obstacles to economic and social development. PJ Diesel is committed to observing the standards of conduct set forth in the FCPA and the anti-corruption and anti–money-laundering laws of the countries/regions in which it operates. PJ Diesel is also committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure that
PJ Diesel and Representatives comply with these standards of conduct and laws in its dealings with or on behalf of PJ Diesel Engineering A/S.

PJ Diesel appreciates the understanding and cooperation of each PJ Diesel and
Representative in this regard.
