Ruled by ethics, inspired by our values
For HENSOLDT, compliance means adherence to legal requirements, internal corporate policies, ethical principles and our values for the protection of the company.
Ethics and integrity provide the basis for trust in relationships with our customers, suppliers, commercial and industrial partners, and all the company’s stakeholders. We ensure that our business practices conform to applicable laws, regulations and ethical business principles, and that we continuously foster a sustainable culture of integrity.
“A company can only be sustainably successful if it acts with integrity, complies with statutory provisions worldwide and stands by ethical principles. Compliance must be second nature to all Group employees.”
General Counsel, HENSOLDT AG
The Compliance Department within the HENSOLDT Group addresses, amongst other things, the areas of anti-corruption, antitrust, data protection, sanctions and export compliance. It has implemented dedicated compliance guidelines and procedures covering all these topics, with our Standards of Business Conduct being the cornerstone of our compliance regulations. We consider Compliance to be a holistic matter and it is for this reason that the respective departments responsible for managing compliance risks within their area are always in close alignment with the Compliance Department.
We consider it our duty to combat all forms of corruption – public and private. Our policies and rules govern all contractual arrangements entered into by our company in relation to any business and project partners and any associated third parties.
