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.
