Code of Conduct

SIGNUM Consulting GmbH has compiled a Code of Conduct that is valid and binding for all employees and contractual partners. Its acceptance and observance are a premise for their tenure. The principles and guidelines entailed in our Code of Conduct depict values that are valid for all.

Honesty, respect, trust and integrity towards our employees, vendors and clients build the core of our Code of Conduct.

The German Corporate Governance Codex, international agreements and guidelines of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Global Compact of the United Nations shape the framework for our Code of Conduct.

SIGNUM Consulting stands for a rule-compliant and honest behaviour in everyday business. Following rules and norms ultimately leads to sustainable economic success.

Our Code of Conduct provides a basis for strong and lasting trusted relationships. With its introduction we want to raise awareness of Corporate Social Responsibility of all of our employees and contractual partners.

SIGNUM Consulting GmbH prepared this Code of Conduct to present its values in terms of honesty, respect, trust and integrity in a transparent manner, both internally and externally. In general, we expect our employees to fully comply with applicable legal requirements in all their activities. This Code of Conduct lays the legal ground for all our activities and defines the ethical behaviour of each of our employees.
