Compliance means as much as adhering to legal requirements and fulfilling contracts.
For companies, this means that the organization and each individual employee must comply with the law. But it also includes ethical standards that the company sets for itself.
Important topics in the area of compliance are data protection, anti-corruption, environment, taxes, product safety, antitrust law and more.
Compliance is not a duty at ALSO, but a matter of course. All employees receive regular training in this area. We have been disclosing our data, standards, and processes in this area for years. Both in our Annual Report and in our Sustainability Report.
Our high standards in the area of compliance also apply to our suppliers, whose commitment in the areas of production, compliance and sustainability management we regularly review. If necessary, we also support them in the development and rollout of measures.
