EGGER is a global family business that focuses on sustainability. The observation of all legal requirements and internal guidelines is key for our business activity and relationships with our partners. The following guidelines help anchor this attitude for all EGGER employees.
The EGGER Code of Conduct is based on our values, mission statement, corporate objectives and the ten principles of the UN Global Compact. The Code of Conduct includes clear standards of conduct that must be observed by all employees.
We also expect our suppliers to share our compliance principles throughout the entire supply chain. With the Supplier Code of Conduct, EGGER clearly expresses that we require our suppliers to comply with the applicable laws and the principles of the UN Global Compact.
EGGER has the welfare of the local community at heart. However, there are clear rules for donations and sponsorship. The EGGER Compliance Guideline on Donations and Sponsorship defines the globally valid standard. We only support organizations or activities that focus on health, social welfare, education and environmental protection. Any endorsements involving political parties, candidates or office holders are excluded. Religious entities and professional sports organizations are also excluded from these benefits.
Unethical and unlawful behavior may cause enormous damage to EGGER as a company, to its employees, and also to the general public. In order to combat such behavior, EGGER has established an ombudsman's office. If there is suspicion of misconduct, employees, suppliers, customers and other third parties may contact the external, neutral lawyer Dr. Carsten Thiel von Herff as the ombudsman. You can also contact the ombudsman's office anonymously.
Learn more about the ombudsman and the reporting process at the link below. The ombudsman is bound to secrecy as he reviews complaints and only forwards them to EGGER upon the express consent of the informant. The ombudsman and EGGER will always treat the identity of informants as confidential.
