“Code of Human Rights & Social Principles”

In 2017 we revised our Social Charter img and renamed it our “Code of Human Rights & Social Principles” . This was adopted by the Board of Management in November 2017. 

This update underscored our commitment to protecting human rights and to the goals of the German National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights adopted by the Federal Government in 2016. 

Our Code of Human Rights & Social Principles also represents our commitment to

  • the guidelines and Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy of the International Labour Organization (ILO img). 
  • the Convention of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD img), 
  • the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and  
  • the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the United Nations Global Compact.
