Code of Ethics

Doing what's right

Enkelfähig also means that we make decisions that are fair and ethical, reflecting our values and core behaviors. We believe that performing with compliance and integrity is the foundation for sustainable business models that create value for generations.

Since our foundation, the key factors for Haniel’s success have been a high degree of creative energy, the willingness to take entrepreneurial risks and doing things differently. What anchors and guides us at all times are the Haniel values – they define who we are and ensure that we protect and preserve our most valuable asset: our reputation as a valued, fair and trusted employer, business partner and community member.

At the center of these values is our deep commitment to the highest standards of integrity and ethical conduct. This does not just mean complying with the law – that is a given. It also means “doing what's right” by following some simple ethical principles so we can make good decisions.

The Haniel Code of Ethics describes the standard against which all activities are to be measured.
