RESPONSIBILITY

OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Values are the determining elements of our culture - including the corporate culture within the LINHARDT Group. Taking responsibility is one of our values. Responsibility wherever our business activities have an impact on society, employees, the environment and the economic environment.

OUR GUIDELINES

We are LINHARDT.


Values are the defining elements of culture – even the corporate culture within the LINHARDT group. To take responsibility is one of our values . Dies sind die Werte, nach denen wir unser Handeln ausrichten:


Professionality – Responsibility – Respect – Reliability – Trust


In 2010, after extensive analysis of our public image and self image, work began on the drawing up of values-oriented guidelines for internal and external relationships. After wide-ranging discussion, LINHARDT formulated the already existing, but rethought, standards of relations to employees, customers, suppliers and the regional environment. With these guidelines, we gave ourselves a codified constitution that is binding for every employee.

These are our guidlines…

    LINHARDT - CODE OF CONDUCT FOR SUPPLIERS

    To this day, LINHARDT has a long tradition of management based on morals and values. In previous years, it was mainly managing directors who embodied the values of the company internally and externally with a high level of personal integrity, the company formulated its corporate philosophy in the mid-1990s - a philosophy that was lived, an inventory and evaluation of relationships with customers, employees and suppliers .


    With the general intensification of the sustainability discussion since the turn of the millennium, LINHARDT saw confirmation of its own corporate policy of solidity and stability in economic, social and ecological terms.


    In 2010, after extensive analysis of others and self-image, the development of value-oriented guidelines for internal and external relations began. After a broad discussion, LINHARDT formulated the previous, but newly thought-out standards for relationships with employees, customers, suppliers and the regional environment. With these guidelines we gave ourselves a codified constitution that is binding for every employee.


    Today's Code of Conduct follows these initiatives - similar to the way laws are based on a constitution. He will not provide patent recipes for every conceivable situation in business life. Rather, it defines non-negotiable minimum standards that we follow in corporate management just as we require them from our employees and suppliers. The immovable basis of these minimum standards is compliance with all applicable laws.
