CODE OF CONDUCT

The basis of our actions is the Ensinger mission statement which defines the character of our relations with our business partners and also with our employees, colleagues and the owners of our company. The upholding and preserving of these values will also be the basis of our continued business success.

Our reputation in the market and in the public domain is sustained by the conduct of our employees. The basis of this reputation is the respect for our corporate values, law and order and our internal regulations and directives.

With this Code of Conduct we would like to summarise the most important and imperative standards and provide the employees with a guide for orienting their actions. The most important drivers and first point of contact for all questions in connection with this Code of Conduct are our executives. We expect our executives to actively promote the principles of our mission statement and this Code of Conduct as part of their performance as a role model and communicate this to their employees and ensure they abide by it.

This Code of Conduct is part of the Ensinger risk management system and applies to all group companies and branches of the Ensinger Group. The regulations contained in this Code of Conduct do not create any rights in favour of third parties.

1. Selection of suppliers

In accordance with our mission statement, we strive to create a relationship with our business partners that is based on partnership and is balanced and fair. When selecting a supplier, it is important to ensure that our business partners comply with the values referred to in this Code of Conduct.

2. Competition

Ensinger is committed to fair competition. All employees are required to obey the applicable laws against restraint of trade. Unlawful agreements on prices or other conditions, territories or customers and the abuse of market power contradict the values of the company. 

3. Bribery and corruption

The Ensinger Group does not condone bribery and corruption and also does not tolerate such conduct. All employees are required to ensure that no kind of personal dependencies or responsibilities towards business partners occur. In particular, employees may not give or accept gifts or other gratuities that could reasonably be assumed to unduly influence the actions or decisions of the recipient. Particularly in the case of public officials, strict standards are to be applied. Gifts of money are prohibited in any case. Standards according to state and federal legislation must be complied with.

4. Business secrets

The business secrets of partners are treated confidentially by the Ensinger Group and its employees. Any disclosure to third parties is prohibited and this applies to all members of the company even after termination of the employment.

1. Role model function

Our executives act as role models and ensure through appropriate supervision in their area of responsibility that violations of this Code of Conduct do not occur.

2. Tolerance and equal opportunities

The Ensinger Group respects human rights worldwide. All employees are to be treated with dignity and respect.

3. Working conditions

The Ensinger Group offers its employees appropriate remuneration and fair working conditions. All forms of forced labour are rejected. Child labour is only tolerated as permitted by law and on condition that the child is at least 15 years old. Practical work experience permitted by law within the scope of professional careers guidance is excluded from this age limit.

4. Health and safety at work

Working hours comply with the applicable national legislation or the relevant ILO conventions. Where necessary and permitted by law, an employee may be required to perform extra work. The national and international regulations for ensuring health and safety in the workplace are observed. Appropriate systems are to be established that avoid risks to health and safety.

5. Environmental protection

In accordance with the mission statement, Ensinger respects the objectives of sustainable environmental protection and acts responsibly when using natural resources.

1. Measures and guidance

In particular, it is also the responsibility of the executives to ensure compliance of all employees with this Code of Conduct.

2. Complaints and reports of violations

Any employee has the possibility and right to report violations or suspected violations of the Code of Conduct to Ensinger. The employee has the option of his superior or a member of a representative body for employees as the contact regarding this matter. Any employee who exercises this right bona fide will not suffer any disadvantages from this in any form whatsoever and is to be actively protected from such measures.
