The corporate compliance function ensures adherence to legal, regulatory and internal requirements, as well as to the Group’s ethical standards. The function emphasizes preventative measures, training, education and consulting.

Our obligation begins with the diligent selection of business partners who share our values and business principles, e.g., as through the commitment of these partners to our Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct as well by ensuring that compliance due diligence is performed and duly approved for each of our business partners.
