Our Code of Conduct consists of the following Principles:
The Code of Conduct cannot anticipate all responses to individual circumstances.
The following questions must always be answerable with “YES” and can therefore serve as a guideline precisely in cases of doubt:
For questions or doubts as to whether one's conduct or a measure is "compliant", the employee shall seek advice at all times from his superior or from a Department such as Human Resources or the Legal Department.
Openness and trust are basically the most effective means of limiting or averting imminent damage caused by misconduct.
We do not tolerate any violations against internal policies or the statutory provisions, irrespective of the hierarchical position of an employee. Eventual violations can lead to disciplinary measures, labour sanctions and further legal action.
JOST provides a compliance reporting system (SpeakUp) which enables employees and business partners to report potential compliance violations. This system is operated by an external service provider, guaranteeing full anonymity of the reporter. Reports may be given on a website operated by the Service Provider or by telephone; details including the link to the website and the telephone number can be found on the intranet and on the JOST website on the internet. All reports are taken seriously, treated with absolute confidentiality and processed by the JOST compliance organisation.

The Management Board
All companies supplying JOST are obligated to adhere to the principles specified in the Supplier Codex
Long-term, trusting partnerships and adhering to applicable laws represent the basis for our collaboration.
These policies apply to all JOST locations and provide a binding basis for social and industrial relations within JOST.
They serve as a benchmark for shaping relationships with suppliers and other business partners.
If you have experienced or witnessed or suspect misconduct by a JOST employee, manager or other individual related to JOST, the JOST management encourages you to report such behavior using the SpeakUp misconduct reporting system.
This communication tool gives you the opportunity to raise concerns confidentially, anony-mously, and in your own language. SpeakUp is run by an independent service provider and is available 24/7/365.
How does it work: You can leave a message online via web. When you leave your message, you will receive a personal 6 digit case number that you must remember. The JOST Chief Compliance Officer receives your translated message within one working day, and will be able to further confidentially communicate with you via SpeakUp. It is important that you re-turn to SpeakUp using your 6 digit case number, so you can follow-up on your case and read the reply that was left for you. It is also possible to upload documentation into SpeakUp.
