It is very impor­tant to BWT to do the right thing in our busi­ness

Our Code of Conduct

While this Code of Conduct is the ultimate instruction guiding our actions, it does not cover all the topics to be regulated; instead, it is to be understood as the apex of a document pyramid consisting of all our guidelines and instructions for action, all of which reflect the basic values of the Code of Conduct by which we are also bound in our actions.

Together let's focus on integrity and compliance.

With your assistance, we can identify and clarify deficits, grievances and misconduct at an early stage. Reliable information helps us counter and correct violations early on, and to prevent harm to our company. Tips and information may be submitted by any employee of the BWT Group, as well as any customers, suppliers or other third parties anywhere in the world.

We trust in your integrity and thank you for your trust and cooperation.

The single most important principle guiding our whistleblower system (BKMS® Incident Reporting) is to protect the whistleblower. Anonymity protection functions are certified by an independent body.

In order to be able to fully investigate tip-offs, it is often necessary to question the whistleblower. For this reason, it is important that the whistleblower disclose his or her identity. However, we understand that there may be obstacles to providing information and that whistleblowers may prefer to remain anonymous. The whistleblower system therefore also allows anonymous tip-offs.

Tip-offs are kept anonymous through encryption and other special security routines.
