Focus area: Transparency

We are committed to being a socially responsible corporate citizen

We do business responsibly

We reject all forms of unfair business practices, including anti-competitive behavior and corruption. This is fundamental to enhance the trust our stakeholders place in us while protecting our reputation and securing the basis for future business.  

Code of Conduct & Supplier Code of Conduct 

We set a clear tone from the top on compliance and business ethics to our employees in our Code of Conduct. Being an international company, we believe that it is our obligation to expand responsible business practices beyond our own operations. Together with our over 22,000 suppliers and trading partners, we have a responsibility to ensure the well-being of the people and communities we procure from. The dormakaba Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC) outlines our requirements with regard to human rights, fair working conditions, environmental responsibility and business ethics, among others. To monitor our suppliers’ sustainability performance, dormakaba periodically runs supplier on-site audits and off-site assessments.  

Our commitment to respect human rights

We support and respect human rights for all people as outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the dormakaba Statement of Commitment on Human Rights. Our commitment to respect human rights extends to all individuals throughout the value chain, and we use the relationships with co-manufacturers, independent suppliers, and other business partners to encourage and promote the principles of the Statement of Commitment on Human Rights throughout our network. 

We are fully committed to upholding the principles of and adherence to international conventions, laws and our internal rules and regulations to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from all areas of life. The dormakaba Modern Slavery Statement sets out the steps we have taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our businesses.

United Nations Global Compact initiative

We are proud to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact initiative. This commits us, along with 10,000 other businesses around the world, to ten principles relating to human rights, fair employment conditions, the environment and corruption. dormakaba publishes its annual “Communication on Progress” on the UN Global Compact website.
