Globally uniform standards

From our Vision and Values, we have formulated globally binding behavioral rules which are specified in a series of codes and corporate standards. These apply to all employees worldwide, in all business areas and cultures in which we operate.

The Code of Conduct contains the most important corporate principles and behavioral rules. It is supplemented by guidelines for dealing with potential conflicts of interest. These guidelines are a key element of our preventive measures against corruption. Further corporate standards address specific topics such as compliance with competition and antitrust laws; safety, health, environment and social standards, as well as public affairs. The codes and corporate standards also provide the basis for implementing the United Nations Global Compact, which Henkel joined as early as 2003.
