Sustainability is an essential element and integral part of the business strategy of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. To secure the sustainable success of our company and our customers with innovative product and service solutions, we source raw materials, goods and services worldwide. The basis for this is responsible corporate management geared to long-term value creation.
In addition to legal, economic, technical and process-related criteria, our procurement activities also take into account social and ecological aspects such as human rights, working conditions, corruption prevention, and climate and environmental protection. We have firmly integrated responsible conduct into our procurement processes. We base our procurement decisions not only on legal, economic, technical and process-related criteria, but also on social, ecological and ethical criteria.
Our corporate guidelines guarantee that the highest standards are met in national and international business relationships. In addition to the approval of exports by the relevant governments, we have set ourselves the highest moral standards for safeguarding human rights and social standards when initiating and maintaining international business relationships.
Our corporate guidelines are based on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our aspiration is to work only with suppliers who adhere to the principles set out therein and who comply with nationally applicable laws in this context.
