The company does not tolerate illegal and unethical behavior. We have established binding company guidelines that require all our managers and employees worldwide to behave ethically and in conformity with the law. These guidelines are the basis of our work and the relationships of our employees with one another as well as with our customers and partners.
Integrity guides our conduct toward our business partners, colleagues, shareholders and the general public. This basic statement of our Corporate Principles constitutes the foundation of the Business Conduct Guidelines. Both our strategic considerations and our day-to-day business must always be based on high ethical and legal standards. To a substantial degree, our Company's public image is determined by our actions and by the way each and every one of us presents and conducts himself or herself, and particularly by the respect we show each other. We all share the responsibility for having our Company meet its corporate social responsibility worldwide. The Business Conduct Guidelines are globally binding rules applicable to every employee. They shall help us meet ethical and legal challenges in our day-to-day work. Any employee who has questions and comments may contact his or her superior or another office designated for that purpose
