Compliance management at JOST aims to ensure that all of the group’s activities comply with the law. Both lawful and responsible conduct and respect for human rights are firmly rooted within our company. By living out our corporate values, we create trust among our customers, business partners, shareholders and the general public. This is vital for the long-term success of our company.
To ensure that possible violations of statutory regulations and internal policies can be detected and uncovered at an early stage, our employees as well as our business partners have the option, in addition to confronting the individuals involved directly, of using a whistleblowing system, if necessary, anonymously.
We are all responsible for the high regard in which our tradition-steeped company is held, as well as ensuring that we do not damage the reputation of our brands and the quality of our products through illegal or irresponsible behaviour. Therefore, a globally applicable Code of Conduct has been introduced for all employees.
JOST works in accordance with the recommendations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations, the core labor standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises as well as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In this context, JOST’s internal Code of Conduct and the legal requirements and voluntary ethical principles it contains represent a central element that forms the basis of our compliance management system.
