The requirements for compliance or compliant behavior are more complex today than ever. In the business environment, legal challenges are constantly increasing, and public awareness of compliance issues has also increased. It is therefore of great importance that our employees take integrity as a matter of course.
In order to ensure that trusting cooperation between all those involved is guaranteed, we continuously review our processes and systems and adapt them to the applicable legal framework.
We stand by our corporate responsibility towards customers, employees, the environment, and society and expect the same from our suppliers and business partners. In our minimum standards, we have formulated the requirements of headwaylogistic gmbh for all business partners in terms of human rights, labor standards, business ethics and environmental protection. The minimum standards are based on the Declaration of Human Rights and the principles of the Global Compact of the United Nations, the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises of the OECD and the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO).
headwaylogistic gmbh has imposed the same regulations and standards for its own operational practice with its code of conduct. In addition, headwaylogistic gmbh expects business partners to fully comply with all applicable rules and laws.
The current version of our supplier code can be found here:
Our primary goal is to identify potential misconduct at an early stage. To this end, we rely, among other things, on reporting indications of possible violations.
Our whistleblower process ensures a trusting and at the same time transparent approach to handling reports. The suspicion of possible criminal offenses such as fraud or corruption as well as other significant violations of rules that are related to headwaylogistic gmbh or its employees are considered indications. Notes can be submitted by both employees and external persons.
Information can be given particularly easily via the digital reporting channel of headwaylogistic GmbH, whereby anonymous reporting is also possible. In addition, this reporting channel enables smooth and data protection-compliant communication between the whistleblower and headwaylogistic gmbh.
Complaints, for example with regard to the services of headwaylogistic gmbh, do not fall under references. In these cases, we ask you to get in touch with your contact person.
We expressly encourage employees and external persons to inform us in the event of suspected violations of the law or misconduct. Whistleblowers must not suffer any disadvantages if they provide information in a professional context.
