      Business Partner

      Our Business Partner Code of Conduct comprises the ecological, social and legal requirements that we have for our suppliers.

      Since 2011, all our suppliers and service providers have had to comply with our code of conduct for suppliers and for business partners. This encompasses seven points, including respect for human rights, anti-corruption and data protection. Our suppliers promise to observe these principles.

      In addition to the commitment of suppliers to comply with the Code of Conduct, production materials suppliers are subject to review prior to initiating a supply relationship. The goal is to review the suppliers on the basis of different criteria with respect to their sustainable "delivery capability." Apart from technological and financial criteria, the suppliers are also evaluated with respect to general corporate issues. Plant visits are also carried out as part of the review to obtain an impression of the prevailing working conditions. This is integrated into the review if apparent deficits are ascertained. A supply relationship can be suspended in extreme cases if agreed countermeasures do not yield the desired success.

      We use cookies to provide you with the best experience on our website. Click on "Accept all" to allow all cookies or "Change cookie settings" to decide individually.

      Note: If you consent to the use of performance cookies, you also consent to the transfer of your personal data to insecure third countries (e.g. to the USA). These insecure third countries do not provide a level of data protection comparable to EU standards. In the case of certain third party providers, such as Google and Mouseflow, no other guarantees are offered to compensate for this deficit. There is therefore a risk that the transmission of your personal data may result in state authorities accessing your personal data without you having effective legal protection options.

      For more information on performance technologies and the transfer of data to third countries, please refer to the privacy policy.

      By clicking the "Accept all" button, you explicitly consent to this. Consent can be revoked at any time by changing the cookie settings. The further processing of data already collected before revocation by the third-party provider cannot be excluded.
