We achieve the best financial outcomes through highest ethical standards according to our Compliance Code, cost controlling, and protecting our assets, environment, and people.

The definite article is required before highest, as superlatives need a definite article before them.

We achieve the best financial outcomes through the highest ethical standards according to our Compliance Code, cost controlling, and protecting our assets, environment, and people.
