In 2015 we introduced a Group-wide Code of Conduct that applies both to KRÜGER GROUP employees and – by reference in the General Purchasing Provisions – to our suppliers. Today, these compliance guidelines cover the areas of conflicts of interest, bribery, antitrust law, and fair competition. In addition, the KRÜGER GROUP commits itself, its employees, and suppliers via the Code of Conduct to respecting human rights as defined in the UN Declaration on Human Rights.
Raw materials that we import from the global South are often particularly critical: fair wages, reasonable working hours, good housing and medical care, women’s rights and prevention of exploitative child labor, and access to good education. Rights that are commonplace for us are often not accessible on farms and in villages in emerging countries. We work to identify supply chain challenges and work toward demonstrable improvements.
Certification programs such as Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade are therefore an important component, as they work specifically toward improving the human rights situation in all areas
To promote responsible and ethical conduct in the world of business, we must first and foremost look at ourselves. That is why our company is audited externally and we take responsibility as a “corporate citizen” for the people in our immediate environment.
