Code of Conduct

Bischof + Klein

Based on the holistic concept of sustainability, Bischof + Klein is meeting its social responsibility in all of its corporate activities. B+K is committed to the Bundesverband Materialwirtschaft, Einkauf und Logistik e.V. (BME - German Association of Materials Management, Purchasing and Logistics) code of conduct, and acts to adhere to fundamental rules pertaining to responsible and fair trade in all of its business relationships.

B+K is committed to meeting its social responsibility in all of its corporate activities and to taking a clear stance against:

  • Corruption
  • Cartel law violations
  • Forced labour
  • Child labour
  • Discrimination

At the same time, the company respects and supports:

  • Adherence to internationally recognised human rights
  • Health protection plus health and safety at work
  • Fair working conditions
  • Environmental protection
  • The confidential handling of corporate and commercial secrets

B+K conveys these principles to its direct suppliers, requesting that they also adhere to them and in turn recommend them to their suppliers.

Bischof + Klein additionally sets its own focal points:

  • With an extensive compliance programme for training employees in matters of cartel law
  • With voluntary validation of its environmental management system according to EMAS III
  • With an internal ethics certificate
  • With a sustainable supply chain – a continuous flow of communication between Bischof + Klein and its customers and suppliers

B+K takes part in a voluntary disclosure process which takes place on an annual basis within the framework of the BME's code of conduct. Bischof + Klein is the first company within the packaging industry to commit to the code of conduct established by this association of around 7,500 German companies in the procurement sector.
