Fairness as a matter of principle
Bremer & Leguil GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of FUCHS PETROLUB SE. As a global lubricant group with activities in many different fields of business FUCHS PETROLUB is continuously competing. The international competition we face is without any restriction. In our opinion, fair competition is the basis for integrity and progress and it additionally enables opportunities and development in the market.
The guideline for the actions of each employee is to comply with the applicable laws. Management and employees are called upon without exception to comply with the applicable laws, regulations and social standards within the scope of their duties, regardless of whether this relates to state or local regulations. Unlawful behavior poses the risk of image loss, weakens our market position and is likely to cause economic damage to our company.
FUCHS PETROLUB has introduced a Code of Conduct in 2004, in which, inter alia, the principles of fair competition, transparency and integrity are established. Areas such as corporate governance and compliance are assigned directly to the management. The FUCHS PETROLUB Compliance Management System is composed of the Chief Compliance Officer and a compliance organization that supports and giving advice to people worldwide. For each country there is a unit compliance officer.
The Code of Conduct which was reissued in 2012 as well as existing for significant compliance guidelines fields—including anti-corruption and competition—constitutes a binding framework in order to ensure respect for the law and social ethics. This is completed by giving information and training and moreover, the consistent accounting and disciplinary compliance violations, a compliance hotline, regular compliance reporting as well as a special compliance audit.
FUCHS Compliance Communication
