"Respect, trust and openness – these are the principles that guide Rheinmetall, and the entire Rheinmetall Executive Board is emphatically dedicated to upholding them.
We believe that strict compliance with all principles of good corporate management is a mandatory element of correct business conduct:
First comes compliance with our strict ethics and Compliance rules for honest conduct when dealing with customers, business partners, employees, shareholders and the public. This applies to our business sectors, at headquarters, and at every subsidiary in Germany and abroad.
In this context, it is critical not only to simply adhere to these provisions, but to also actively demand conduct with integrity with colleagues and stakeholders, as well as the open and timely involvement of our Compliance Organization in cases of doubt.
As a matter of course, our desire is to bring every one of our transactions to a successful conclusion. In doing so, we wish to conduct only those transactions which are in keeping with the applicable laws and are compatible with the rules of good corporate management, corporate compliance and current industry standards. We must all make this a personal commitment, and it is what we expect of every employee at Rheinmetall. Otherwise, we will be harming Rheinmetall and impeding our future success."
