The Ringmetall Group is in contact with its environment, both with the various interest groups (stakeholders) and the shareholders. The link between the company and its stakeholders is formed by Compliance Management. This deals with the analysis and optimization of regulated and possibly unregulated internal and external processes. The aim is to ensure that legally binding and ethical requirements are complied with.

Due to its international orientation and the different areas in which services are rendered, the Ringmetall Group is involved in many international and national sets of rules. Following the rules is part of the daily work. The justification and minimization of deviations is the task of compliance.

Each of us acts in the overall interest of Ringmetall. Fairness and appreciation characterize our daily interaction. As part of a team, each of us lives by strong values. Honesty. Reliability. Credibility. We take responsibility.

We have formulated concrete rules for conduct in the professional environment and clearly set them out in the corresponding Group guidelines and agreements. They are unrestrictedly valid and binding for every employee of the Ringmetall Group. Anyone who does not behave in accordance with the Group guidelines and agreements must expect appropriate consequences within the framework of company and legal regulations.

In the event that whistleblowers wish to report a violation of existing rules and do not want to or are unable to use any other method, we have set up a whistleblower system in which violations can be reported anonymously. The system enables reports to be made technically anonymous and is available in several languages. It complements existing systems and is intended to be used to report violations made only under the anonymous reporting option. It thus complements all established systems in which personal reporting is carried out on the basis of existing regulations or tasks.

The special protective effect in this system is balanced by the responsibility to understand the system as a supplement to existing systems and to refrain from misuse.

Every employee, as well as outsiders, can also obtain information on the whistleblower reporting system by e-mail for better understanding. The central e-mail address set up for this purpose is: .
