We want to respect social values and the environment.
Our behavior respects local social values wherever we operate. Worldwide our standards of environmental protection are stricter than legislation requires. Our communication with society at large builds credibility, strengths public trust in us, and contributes to a positive image.
Trust has to be earned. It requires level of credibility, which each of us should seek to achieve & actively develop through reliability and professionalism in our day to day work
Overall interest of the company has top priority in our work & ranks ahead of departmental & individual interests. What we do should therefore not serve to gain advantage at the expense of others. Integrity and an appropriate level of modesty are defining elements of the way we present ourselves.
Responsibility means accepting the consequences of one’s actions. This especially applies to each and every one of us in our work. And it also applies to our company in its business and social relations.
We have a good command of the techniques and methods we need for our work, and seek to continually acquire further knowledge to improve our effectiveness and efficiency. In the search for solutions to problems we apply due care and act with foresight.
We are attentive to others and further our cooperation by showing respect and appreciation. Remaining receptive and open to other people and ideas enables us to learn from each other and to develop together.
