In order to achieve lasting and sustainable success, the KRAIBURG Group (“KRAIBURG”) conducts its global business in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. All employees are held to adhere to the rules of the legal system they work in. They must avoid violations of the law at all times, commit to act upon the highest ethical standards and treat others with respect and integrity.
An internal Business Conduct Policy (BCP) is designed to serve as a binding regulation for every KRAIBURG employee in the world, helping them to master the legal challenges arising from their day-to-day work. The internal BCP is also available in English and Chinese language. Every employee is expected to carefully read this policy and conscientiously act in accordance with its rules. KRAIBURG does not tolerate violations of law. Employees who violate laws or binding regulations may face disciplinary action and criminal prosecution.
KRAIBURG’s management board and executives acknowledge their special responsibility as role models for their employees. The management board will take measures to instruct and support employees in abiding by the laws. KRAIBURG employees who face legally sensitive tasks will receive periodical BCP training in order to guide and support them with their everyday work. Employees are expected to participate in these trainings.
The BCP is not able to cover every question that may arise in day-to-day work. Additional measures to prevent legal infringements therefore include the appointment of a compliance officer who will be able to advise employees on all relevant matters. Employees can contact the compliance officer with legal questions regarding their own behavior and with any legally doubtful incidents observed in their working environment. On request, the compliance officer will treat all questions and concerns reported to him/her as strictly confidential.
Additionally, the management board has set up an external email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and an external helpline at the law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek at phone number 0049 40 355 280 74. On request, the lawyers will treat all questions and suggestions as strictly confidential and/or anonymous.
KRAIBURG has given the assurance that employees will never be disadvantaged or otherwise discriminated against for contacting the compliance officer or using the third-party helpline/email address in good faith.
