Code of Conduct

9. Supply Chain

In future, we expect our suppliers to comply with the principles of this Code of Conduct or to apply equivalent codes of conduct. We will also encourage them to enforce the contents of this Code of Conduct in their supply chains. We reserve the right to check the application of this Code of Conduct by our suppliers systematically and on an ad hoc basis. This may take the form of questionnaires, assessments or audits. If there are still doubts regarding compliance with this Code of Conduct, the supplier will be requested to take appropriate countermeasures and to report the matter to the responsible contact in our company. If necessary, the cooperation will be terminated.
