Ethical Management

KEXIM’s ethical management goes beyond preventing corruption and graft by complying with related laws and regulations and ethical codes, and is rooted in its national?social responsibility as an official export credit agency. We established the ethical management system by undergoing a process of set up (‘06~’09), advancement (’10-’14) and internalization (‘15~present) and have been making the utmost effort to become a “clean bank” that can be trusted by our clients and Korean citizens.

In 2020, the Bank obtained ISO 37001 (anti-bribery management system) to build a systematic anti-corruption system that is in line with global standards and is pursuing the advancement of the ethical management system. With the aim of internalizing ethical management, the Bank develops the “Action Plans for Anti-Corruption and Integrity Policy” every year, and requests the executives to sign the Integrity Oath to create an ethical management environment. Also, the Bank is internalizing integrity by conducting integrity trainings for employees on an annual basis.
