Integrity beyond a doubt at all times

For many years, the top management of the ANDRITZ GROUP has made it crystal clear to all directors, managers and employees that business must be conducted in an ethical manner and in compliance with laws and internal rules.

We also consider it a key part of our social responsibility to incorporate sustainability goals into our products and the way we operate our businesses. In other words: our business culture requires that our integrity be maintained beyond a doubt at all times.

ANDRITZ CEO Joachim Schönbeck

CEO Compliance Statement

Compliance with laws and regulations and respect for business ethics are the foundation of ANDRITZ's business. It is written down in our Code of Conduct and Ethics. This isn't about ticking boxes; it's about ensuring our long-term success and maintaining the trust of our partners, communities, and colleagues.

It's crucial that everyone at ANDRITZ, whether you're an employee or a business partner, understands and lives by these values. Our reputation, success, and the great relationships we've built depend on it.

We’re committed to promoting these standards across ANDRITZ, ensuring that our values are more than just words. Let's keep ANDRITZ a place where we not only do business but do it right!

The Group Compliance Organization

We have established an ANDRITZ Group Compliance Organization to address a number of key subjects and provide ongoing global coverage in all regions in which we operate. The mission of the Group Compliance Organization is to ensure that risk assessments are carried out and that compliance regulations and procedures are implemented and improved. In addition, it conducts internal and external audits to assess the effectiveness of rules and make further improvements. We encourage employees, business partners, and stakeholders to raise any concerns they may have. This can be done by using the anonymous whistleblowing tool Speak Up!

Together, all aspects of our Group Compliance Program contribute to ensuring the effectiveness of our Compliance Management System. It is founded upon international recognized standards, based on a dynamic system that functions on the cornerstones of:

Risks assessment - Prevention - Detection - Sanction - Improvement

Should you have any questions concerning our Group Compliance Program or require support in compliance matters related to the ANDRITZ GROUP, please contact the ANDRITZ Group Compliance department.

The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

ANDRITZ has developed a number of compliance regulations and business processes, all of which are based on the ANDRITZ Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“Code of Conduct”). Our Code of Conduct is available in 13 languages. All employees receive a copy of the Code of Conduct as well as mandatory training on it. Thousands of compliance trainings are carried out every year across the globe – online and face-to-face – so that newcomers to the ANDRITZ world can embrace our values and long-term employees can refresh their knowledge.

  • Anti-bribery / Anti-Corruption
  • Anti-Trust / Competition law

Supplier Compliance

For our Group Compliance Program to succeed, it is important that members of our supply chain adhere to the same values, principles and rules as we do. Many of our customers value the fact that ANDRITZ is making tremendous efforts to ensure that our suppliers comply with our standards of integrity. Suppliers who support the same compliance values and rules will be preferred business partners of our global organization.

This is why we have established a Supplier Code of Conduct that summarizes our suppliers’ commitment to our Group Compliance Program. Any business partner who wishes to be a supplier to the ANDRITZ GROUP is requested to adhere to the Supplier Code of Conduct. Suppliers must also pass an onboarding procedure during which they have to answer a questionnaire and may be subject to compliance audits. Eventually we may also invite our suppliers’ employees working for ANDRITZ to pass an online training course designed especially for them.

LKSG Compliance

Since January 1, 2023, ANDRITZ Deutschland Beteiligungs GmbH (as a result of aggregating the affiliated subsidiaries) has to implement the requirements of the German Lieferkettensorgfaltsgesetz (LkSG). This law requires companies to comply with certain due diligence obligations in their supply chain and their own business area with regard to human rights and environmental standards. A risk management process with clear responsibilities must be established and regular risk analyses must be carried out. ANDRITZ has had an existing supplier compliance risk program in place for many years already and conducts risk assessments in its own business area through existing processes (e.g., HR onboarding processes). The additional measures taken by ANDRITZ to meet the requirements of the LKSG are explained in more detail below:

Express reference is made to the published policy statement (Policy Statement of ANDRITZ Deutschland Beteiligungs GmbH).Our Whistleblowing tool, called "Speak UP!", enables anyone to report human rights and environmental risks and (potential) violations arising from the activities of ANDRlTZ or one of our direct or indirect suppliers to the Group Compliance department.

Tax Compliance and Tax Behavior
