This code of ethics has been developed in accordance with our social engagement policy.
Common moral and behavioral standards
During operation the company complies with all laws and regulations and expects this from all employees and business partners.

These norms apply to all written and unwritten rules of coexistence, with particular regard to the personal rights, religious, gender, ethnic, political affiliation and beliefs.
The persons concerned must not restrict others in the exercise of their rights or legitimate personal needs. The company’s management and employees strive to observe and enforce all the above.
The company owners want to set an example to the employees by their behavior by considering the contents of the code of ethics as binding on themselves. In addition to the company’s business management, their personal actions also reflect the jointly accepted moral standards.

The owners provide all support, help and guidance to ensure that the accepted standards can be adhered to. They support all those processes (personal training, team-building meetings, consulting, creation of appropriate work environment) that promote joint work.
