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.

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.
