Corporate Responsibility Strategy
DMG MORI commits itself to clear principles and value standards. These form the framework of our sustainable corporate management and the basis of all our actions.
We have firmly integrated the responsibility for sustainable action in our corporate structure. Corporate Responsibility supports the various corporate divisions in anchoring our principles and values. Corporate Responsibility follows an integrated approach, which also encompasses the areas of sustainability and compliance with existing management systems. Sustainability and compliance contribute to the corporate success of DMG MORI as integral elements of our corporate culture. The management system is anchored in the group worldwide and comprises the seven elements: culture, goals, risks, program, organization, communication, monitoring and improvement.
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct forms the basis for dealing with all our company’s stakeholders and describes the objectives and rules that reflect our commitment to act in a responsible, ethically irreproachable and lawful manner.
Our Code of Conduct is applicable worldwide in all group companies and for third parties. Additional internal guidelines substantiate the Code of Conduct.
We have drawn up our Code of Conduct in a total of 25 group languages. Other language versions are available upon request.
Human Rights and Environmental Issues
At DMG MORI, corporate success and responsibility for people, society and the environment are in harmony. We comprehensively acknowledge our responsibility towards human rights and our environment and also assume this holistically along the entire value chain.
Policy Statement regarding human rights and the environment
The Policy Statement for DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT and its dependent companies is drawn up in accordance with Section 6 (2) of the German Corporate Due Diligence Act (Gesetz über die unternehmerischen Sorgfaltspflichten - LkSG) on the prevention of human rights violations in supply chains.
Modern Slavery Statement
The statement is mandatory for companies with business activities in Great Britain pursuant to the British “Modern Slavery Act”. The statement is published in accordance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
In the event of questions or comments on compliance or sustainability issues you can contact the central Responsibility Management.
We have also set up a helpdesk. The helpdesk is available to provide assistance to all employees and to our business partners as the central point of contact for all compliance and sustainability related questions and comments, and for any notification of breaches.
In addition, Dr. Carsten Thiel von Herff, LL.M., can be contacted as independent legal counsel (ombudsman). All employees and business partners may seek out the independent legal counsel in confidence and anonymously in the event of suspicion of a violation of the law and/or a breach of our internal rules of conduct.
No matter whether you contact us personally, our helpdesk or the independent legal counsel, we will follow up on every information. After checking the plausibility, we initiate investigations and, if necessary, measures. If possible and within the scope of what is legally permissible, we inform the whistleblower of the result after the process is completed. We offer our whistleblowers protection and do not tolerate any retaliatory actions directed against them.
