SGL Carbon promotes a corporate culture in which integrity issues can be openly addressed. Our employees are encouraged and required to report possible violations of the Code of Conduct. If they have questions or doubts, they are encouraged to seek advice. As a rule, the line manager, the Local Compliance Representative or the Compliance department is responsible. Employees can report a violation of the compliance guidelines to the aforesaid contact persons or use the confidential whistleblowing system which is also available for third parties.
We do not tolerate sanctions or discrimination against, or the unfair treatment of, any SGL employee who reports a compliance incident in good faith. We assure the employee that the matter will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
