Our principles of corporate ethics
Our ethical principles are our company’s business framework. Embedded in five codes, they govern how we should achieve our corporate goals. These codes are supplemented by a body of regulations and directives.
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct contains our principles for dealing with business partners and third parties. It also governs the handling of information, confidentiality and data protection, the prevention of money laundering, and the separation of personal and business interests.
Code of Innovation
The Code of Innovation specifies our principles concerning research and development, partnerships, patents and innovation management.
Code of Teamwork & Leadership
The Code of Teamwork & Leadership outlines our understanding of teamwork and leadership. Key aspects here include trust and esteem, motivation and success, recognition and development, teamwork and equal opportunity, worklife balance and the positive example set by managerial employees.
Code of Safety
The Code of Safety defines our safety culture and sets safety guidelines for workplaces, facilities, and products and their transport.
Code of Sustainability
The Code of Sustainability lists principles for sustainability to be adhered to by R&D, procurement and logistics, production and products, and describes our commitment to society. In addition, sustainable corporate management at WACKER is based on two voluntary, global initiatives: the chemical industry’s Responsible Care® initiative and the UN’s Global Compact.
