Our ethics principles
Living our purpose and values
All employees need to know, understand and live by the ethics principles – and hold others to them as well.
Superiors bear responsibility for ensuring that problems, questions and notifications are followed up on.
We observe the laws, regulations and standards that apply to our profession. The requirements here do not cover our activities in their entirety. That is why we have additionally developed our ethics principles. The principles are based on our values and clarify how we wish to uphold our values in practice.
