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 policies 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. We have therefore created channels for communicating with us, including the possibility of using an anonymous whistleblowing tool.
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
The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
ANDRITZ has developed a number of compliance policies 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. The revision of the code in 2019 was taken as an opportunity to launch a video with its content:
