LEONI Code of Conduct – Road to integrity
In 2007, LEONI introduced a Code of Conduct, which is binding for all employees of the LEONI Group worldwide. In 2017 the Code of Conduct has been revised and redeveloped and has recently been published as the LEONI Code of Conduct.
It describes what responsible and lawful conduct is. It comprises the external legal demands as well as those specific to the market and customers placed on the company for proper conduct. LEONI has defined the value of integrity as an anchor point and basis for the LEONI Code of Conduct. Integrity forms the foundation of value-based corporate governance and serves as a signpost, rule of behaviour and decision-making aid.
Diversity in LEONI’s corporate culture
LEONI has now signed the Diversity Charter. This is a project intended to create a working environment that is free of prejudice. It was initiated by the former German Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Minister of State Dr Maria Böhmer.
By ratifying the standards contained in the Diversity Charter, LEONI is establishing an open-minded corporate culture that is based on inclusion and mutual respect. The purpose is to identify different talents within the workforce and to utilise them in a targeted manner. Together with the other signatories of the Charter, LEONI is thus contributing to the creation of a climate of acceptance and mutual trust in society and to increasing respect for diversity in practice.
Social Charter: LEONI AG’s commitment
LEONI AG was one of the first companies anywhere in the world to issue a “Declaration on Social Rights and Industrial Relations” back in April 2003.
This Social Charter applies directly to all LEONI Group companies worldwide. Ensuring employee and human rights as well as assuming social responsibility have always been integral elements of LEONI’s corporate policy. The European Works Council and the International Metalworkers’ Federation (IMF) are co-signatories to this Charter.
LEONI supports and encourages its business partners to respect this declaration in their own corporate policies. The company regards this as a beneficial basis for reciprocal business relationships.
