Compliance and human rights

The aim of our compliance management system is to ensure legal conformity of all Anvis Group activities.

Responsible and lawful conduct is firmly established as part of the Anvis Group’s corporate culture. We strongly believe in respect for human rights and are committed to observance of such rights at all of our locations. We also expect this from our business partners throughout the value chain.

Key measures:

The Anvis Group regards integrity and compliance with the law as basic requirements for longterm business relationships. Clear values and guidelines enable us to build trust among our customers, business partners, shareholders and the general public, thereby laying the foundation for the longterm success of our company.

Establishing legal conformity within the Anvis Group

The Anvis Group Legal Compliance Code forms the basis of our compliance management system. It spells out the Board of Management’s commitment to compliance as a joint responsibility and underlines all employees’ obligation to act responsibly and in compliance with applicable laws.

Managing compliance

Our compliance management system is oriented towards the Anvis Group’s risk situation and also covers the Financial Services segment. With defined structures and processes, it creates a company-specific regulatory framework, so that every employee is aware of their compliance responsibility and lawful conduct is systematically ensured. Key components of this system include internal compliance regulations, legal monitoring, complaint and case management, compliance controls and compliance reporting, as well as compliance training and communications activities.

The compliance management system is applied to all compliance topics: in particular, to prevent corruption and anticompetitive conduct and to ensure respect for human rights – especially the core labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) – at all our locations.

We also ask all organisational units of the Anvis Group to conduct a local risk assessment of potential for human rights violations. Their responses form the basis for developing further measures to minimise risks.
