Com­pli­ance at GERRY WEBER

Our good repu­ta­tion is one of the most important assets of our company and the basis for our long-term success. This is why we want to do more than just comply with internal and statutory reg­u­la­tions.

We always keep an eye on ethical aspects, both in our day-to-day business and when taking strategic decisions. It is therefore important that every employee and everybody who rep­res­ents GERRY WEBER assumes re­spons­ib­il­ity – for ethical behaviour, fair dealings with each other and the external effect of their actions.

Com­pli­ance requires re­spons­ible action of each in­di­vidu­al and the role model function of our ex­ec­ut­ives.

The Code of Conduct comprises rules that are binding on all of us and creates a shared un­der­stand­ing. The Code governs both internal co­oper­a­tion and our behaviour towards external partners such as customers and suppliers.

The Code of Conduct forms the basis for the GERRY WEBER Group’s Com­pli­ance Programme, which es­sen­tially comprises the following elements:

  1. Com­pli­ance Or­gan­isa­tion Corporate Audit & Com­pli­ance is re­spons­ible for per­form­ing the com­pli­ance-related tasks with support from the Com­pli­ance Committee and the Local Com­pli­ance Officers.

  2. Code of Conduct of the GERRY WEBER Group The Code of Conduct of the GERRY WEBER Group comprises general behaviour rules that are binding upon the company as a whole and all its employees.

  3. Group Com­pli­ance Guidelines The Group Guidelines break the Code of Conduct down into greater detail. They include, in par­tic­u­lar, Group Guidelines on Antitrust and Com­pet­i­tion Law as well as the Guidelines on Accepting and Granting Priv­ileges.

  4. Whis­tleblow­ing An external lawyer has been appointed as an in­de­pend­ent ombudsman. Employees, customers and business partners may contact the ombudsman through various channels, even an­onym­ously. His pro­fes­sion­al status as a lawyer means that he is bound by con­fid­en­ti­al­ity.
