What is compliance?
Compliance means adherence to legal regulations and the company's internal rules. This includes both legislation and official regulations, and the rules the company has set itself, for example how we deal with gifts or invitations.
Hoffmann SE Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct provides guidelines for Hoffmann SE’s bodies, senior managers and employees in their professional environment. It is based on integrity, fair and ethical behaviour, and conservation of the environment. It is an important element in the sustainable positive development of Hoffmann in a constantly changing international environment.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Just as Hoffmann SE’s behaviour is governed by compliance, the same is expected from suppliers. Every supplier is required to agree to the principles set out in the Supplier Code of Conduct.
You can submit reports of violations or suspected violations of legal regulations and/or Policies and other rules by post, by e-mail
or using the whistleblower portal.
This also includes indications on human rights or environmental risks as well as legal violations along our global supply chain.
A Whistleblower will not be disadvantaged in any way by submitting a report, provided that report is made in good faith. Reports should be submitted to the best of the individual’s knowledge and belief. However, any person raising frivolous or knowingly false unjustified allegations and accusations will face consequences.
