Our Code of Conduct - Ethical principles
The VON ARDENNE Code of Conduct is the compass for our actions. It contains principles and rules that are binding for all VON ARDENNE employees. The code provides clear guidance on how to act ethically in our daily work and how to live fairness, sustainability and integrity, both internally and externally.
The agreement to comply with the VON ARDENNE Code of Conduct is a key criterion for us when selecting new suppliers and sales partners: we expect our business partners to conduct their business in line with the values of this code and support them in this endeavor to the best of our ability. At the same time, we call on our suppliers to ensure the same in their supply chains.
Fairness as the key in dealing with each other
as a guaranty for active cooperation
We want to continuously improve, so we encourage all employees, as well as our business partners, customers, suppliers and other third parties, to report any suspected violation of applicable laws or our Code of Conduct.
We guarantee the greatest possible protection to whistleblowers, affected parties as well as the employees involved in clarifying a given matter. We follow up on all reports consistently, quickly and with the necessary level of confidentiality.
Provide information - but correctly!
So that the Information Office can process and investigate your information appropriately, it is important that your information is as specific as possible. It is helpful if you ask these questions when submitting your information:
- Who? - Whom is this about? Who is affected?
- What? - What happened? Description of the facts.
- When? - When did the incident happen?
- How? - How did it happen? How often does it happen?
- Where? – Where did the incident occur?
As a whistleblower, ensure that your descriptions can also be understood by people outside your specialization. It is helpful if you are available for additional questions.
