Compliance has been an issue of great importance for the Jungheinrich Group for years. For Jungheinrich, compliance means observing legal provisions and company-internal guidelines. It is the first line of defence in preventing possible hazards and risks in the company.
A Compliance System was developed in the Jungheinrich Group in 2008. It later served as the basis for creating an additional control mechanism for the company. Mr Jastrob, manager of the Group Audit department, is responsible for implementing the Compliance System. The Chief Compliance Officer is the Chairman of the Board of Management of Jungheinrich AG, Mr Frey.
The Jungheinrich Compliance System includes a Code of Conduct, which is available for all Jungheinrich managers and requires appropriate conduct according to the leadership mission of the company.
Another important element of this system is our whistle-blower programme. This makes it possible to report violations against laws or internal Jungheinrich guidelines anonymously to the Compliance Officer using a form designed for this purpose, either internally or externally by third parties via our whistle-blower hotline.
And finally, Group Audit carefully considers compliance with laws and Jungheinrich regulations in connection with its audits in all departments and companies of the Jungheinrich Group.
