Il Sole 24 Ore is an Italian financial daily newspaper. The paper reports on the free market and the economic community of the European Union.

Il Sole 24 Ore's journalists aim to report news with transparency, credibility and with respect for truth and facts. To ensure transparency, the publication defines its various types of content, lists the skills and background of its editorial staff and shares the methodologies used by its journalists during the process of reporting.

Gruppo 24 Ore guarantees the dignity and respect of its employees and collaborators by prohibiting all discriminatory attitudes related to gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, religious beliefs, political opinions or disability in its newsroom and in its reporting to the publication's audience.
The publication strives for accuracy in its reporting and attempts to minimize the number of errors and corrections that occur. When a correction is made, it will be reported at the bottom of the relevant article with an explanation of what has changed from the original content and why. Corrections will be made as quickly as possible once the editorial staff has received notice and the journalist who wrote the article, as well as the editor in chief, has carried out necessary checks.
Il Sole 24 Ore will identify a source whenever possible. In cases when a source has asked to remain anonymous, the publication will disclose as much information as possible about the source without exposing their identity. The publication will also disclose if information attributed to an anonymous source came from one or multiple sources. Because the use of anonymous sources is rare, it is ultimately the editor in chief who decides if there is a need to protect the identity of a source.
