Compliance at Brenntag
Brenntag has always attached great importance to responsible, prudent and sustainable corporate governance. Our top priority is adherence to statutory requirements as well as voluntary internal conduct policies (compliance).
To enable this, management uses various internal control and risk management systems and has established a compliance organization within the company. Every Brenntag employee is personally responsible for complying with all applicable laws, directives, policies and regulations.
"Each of our employees is personally responsible for avoiding unlawful and unethical behavior and complying with the code of conduct at all times without exception."
Brenntag Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
We are committed to integrity in our business transactions, in our dealings with customers, suppliers, competitors and towards our employees and the public.
As part of Brenntag, we each have a personal responsibility to act in strict compliance with the letter and the spirit of the laws, policies and regulations that Brenntag is subject to.
Summaries and highlights of the policies and procedures which are particularly important to our business and for the preservation of our good name and reputation are available as download.
Brenntag has established procedures for receiving, registering and handling complaints and anonymous submissions concerning questionable matters. Confidentiality is assured, and no employee will suffer any consequences for submitting such complaints or anonymous submissions. Third parties (customers, suppliers and the public) may also use the contact.
The Brenntag Compliance contact is available to report possible infringements of laws or policies, affecting companies of the Brenntag Group. This represents an additional facility for alerting the company to evidence of legal infringements.
Hints can be submitted by using a web-based form. All personal details in the web-form are optional and you can leave these fields blank if you wish providing the opportunity to report anonymously. However, anonymous reports do not allow further inquiries and should therefore only be submitted in exceptional cases in which employees or Third Parties have concerns for or fear of personal, professional or social harm.
