* When speaking of "employees" we mean both male and female persons at all levels of the company hierarchy.
Preamble - CEO
In the business world, it is quite exceptional that it is not the marketing department, but the employees from various areas who take the initiative to develop a Code of Conduct or a corporate roadmap. This deserves our acknowledgement. It also reveals that our employees indentify themselves fully with their company and are prepared to commit themselves to standards of practice company targeted to our common success.
Especially in times of rapid change, and bearing in mind the fact that our companies are establishing themselves successfully in the market and still have to prove their competitiveness, our employees have recognized that common principles and conduct guidelines are a must for us, both internally and externally. Not simply passing on this awareness to the "top" and waiting for implementation, but being pro-active is what makes me very optimistic. This is the only way in which the work achieved can also be lived.
The Code of Conduct is not intended to cover all the laws, rules and regulations nor does it provide answers to all possible questions – it supplies the foundation. As in daily life, a healthy dose of common sense should be applied to making decisions as to what is right, or when the help of another party is needed in choosing the right course of action.
I would like to thank everyone involved and very much welcome the result of this effort as a platform for our company policy. I especially wish that the principles, rules and regulations drawn up here are accepted and supported, and that we all live up to them actively, every day and as quickly as possible. Not only will many things become simpler, we will also come together closely – and this will lead us to becoming even more successful!

Sustainable Management of Resources and Environment
The protection of the environment and the sustainable management of resources are gaining increased importance. We face the responsibility of fulfilling existing environmental guidelines and doing our very best to do more than merely the necessary. The prerequisite is the ongoing control of our activities.
The responsible management of resources is not only beneficial to the protection of the environment, but also has a positive influence on our economic success and that of our partners.
Each employee is actively involved in this task.
Adherence to Legal Principles
In the context of a co-operation on a partnership basis, our business partners rely on our conscientiously meeting all applicable laws and guidelines. Our employees are aware that even the slightest infringements of the law cause significant damage to business partners and may considerably endanger our reputation.
We strictly reject bribery and corruption in business and avoid conflicts of interest.
We therefore demand that our employees show a maximum of integrity and professional conduct.
Respect for Ethic Principles
The respect for our ethic principles is especially important with regards to the practices within our company and with business partners.
Sense of responsibility
We face our challenging obligations and only enter contractual agreements if we are also able to fulfill them. We assume the responsibility for our actions at all times.
Our conduct at all levels is shaped by mutual regard and respect, within our company and towards our business partners, and characterized by understanding and two-way trust.

We maintain a constructive, honest and open dialogue among ourselves and with our business partners.
We exercise the necessary care when handling confidential information. We protect personal and customer information from being accessed by third parties.
Acceptance of Social Responsibilities
We closely adhere to our social responsibilities towards our employees and the company.
We are fully aware that our employees´performance can only be optimized when the ratio between work and leisure time is in balance. Flexible working times, part- time employment and the promotion of sports and team activities are important components of this balance.
We also consider in-company training as acceptance of social responsibility. By offering a sound training platform, we make it possible for young people to start on their professional life, while making a valuable contribution towards the world at large.
We consider ourselves active members of society and are therefore committed to Corporate Social Responsibility. Voluntary social engagements of the employees are welcomed on principle. We make our own contribution by sponsoring cultural or social events and facilities.
