An active Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct is part of the so-called “Bühler Essentials”. It serves all employees as a beacon showing them how to live the Group’s core corporate principles (Trust, Respect, Recognition, Involvement, and Passion) in their day-to-day jobs. It states what is expected of employees and business partners, defines the standards governing compliance with laws and regulations, and includes the fundamentals of communications, employee rights, health and safety, and financial integrity.
Bühler regularly reviews its own principles of corporate governance to ensure that they are up to date. Our Code of Conduct has been reviewed and now also includes binding standards for our business partners. The Code of Conduct is being continuously adjusted to ongoing changes in the environment.
Clear rules against corruption and bribery
The so-called ABC (Anti Bribery & Corruption) rules against bribery and corruption unmistakably state that no violations will be tolerated. They concern in particular collaboration with agents. It is mandatory for all employees in procurement, sales, and management functions to undergo a comprehensive online training program (Web Based Training, WBT) after they have joined the company and to pass a final test.
