The Codes of Conduct of the SFC Energy Group define our responsibilities as well as our commitment to integrity and are based on five corporate values that serve as guidelines for proper conduct:
We expect our business partners, including suppliers, to live up to their social responsibility in all their business activities. With the Code of Conduct for our business partners, we therefore also want to play our part in taking responsibility for our supply chain.
Indications of compliance violations against our Codes of Conduct as well as laws and internal guidelines can be reported to our Compliance Officer at [email protected]. All reports will be treated confidentially and with due diligence. In addition, our Managers and the Management Board of the SFC Energy Group are always available to our employees as contacts.
This offer is further extended by the possibility to report indications of possible violations of the law or internal guidelines to the Ombuds Office of SFC via an anonymous internet-based whistleblowing system.
Our whistleblowing system, together with our Codes of Conduct, forms our "Compliance Section". The purpose of this system is to ensure that any behaviour that does not comply with our guidelines and applicable national law, or even suspected criminal offences, can be reported anonymously. This allows us to investigate the facts of the case without compromising the protection of the whistleblower. With the help of our whistleblower system, we want to ensure transparency in dealing with possible violations and problems and resolve them as quickly as possible before they can harm the SFC Energy Group or the community. Our whistleblowing system takes compliance reports from employees as well as from business partners and suppliers and follows up every single request.
At this point, we would like to encourage every individual to use our whistleblowing system to inform us of any suspected violation of rules or laws as well as any misconduct, especially corruption or discrimination. At the same time, we assure that no one will be disadvantaged by this.
