Compliance: What is important to us

As a plastics processing company, it is important to us at Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik GmbH to align our business practices with a holistic, sustainable approach to business. In doing so, we attach great importance to integrity, righteousness and respect for human dignity, as well as responsible use of our ecological resources. We view this with economic foresight and social responsibility.

After more than 75 years of entrepreneurial activity as a medium-sized family business, sustainability is a lived practice for us; it is an important principle for the framework conditions under which our products are created and our entrepreneurial decisions are made.

It is our conviction that a solid compliance culture for our voluntary measures in our social responsibility and, of course, compliance with legal regulations are essential for the success of our company. We therefore regard compliance not only as a legal obligation, but also as a question of attitude and our essential basic principle for economic, social, ethical and thus sustainable action.

Our values of openness, discipline, trust, responsibility and setting an example provide us with a reliable framework for this. These standards are based on the fact that we live our values and principles together and put them into practice in our daily work.

Code of Conduct for Employees

The holistic sustainable attitude of the company determines our actions and is therefore also reflected in the Code of Conduct for our employees at Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik GmbH.

This summarizes the most important compliance rules for lawful and ethical business conduct and builds on our traditional family values of openness, discipline, trust and leading by example.

We pass on all important behavioral guidelines to our employees with the help of web-based training and printed publications.

Code of Conduct for Business Partners

We have encouraged our business partners to uphold our compliance guidelines, also within the framework of our general purchasing and business terms and conditions, in order to jointly assume corporate responsibility.
