A healthy corporate culture based on ethical values
LIVONDO stands for fair cooperation and more
These are our ethical principles:
Loyalty means mutual trust. LIVONDO shares this trust with its customers, employees and suppliers, based on an open and honest partnership. Loyalty is one of the foundations within our company and of our business relationships.
For LIVONDO discretion is more than just a word. We treat all business information of our customers with absolute secrecy. This information must not be used for personal advantage.
We make sure that our customers and employees are precisely, understandably and clearly informed. We supply our customers with high-quality products and services and always try to offer added value. We offer our suppliers clear and understandable contracts and demand from them that they also follow our ethical principles.
Respect towards fellow human beings
LIVONDO is committed to equality of opportunity and endeavours to offer its employees identical opportunities for equal qualification regardless of race, origin, age, sex, religion or personal lifestyle. Improvement of the quality of life always means respect for human dignity and consideration for every individual.
In our global business activities we condemn all practices that are not based on trust, integrity and fairness. Corruption and unfair competition do not contribute to forming and maintaining a long-term harmonious partnership. All of our partners are aware of this principle and are called upon by us to also distance themselves from such machinations. We always respect the national laws and the national code of conduct of our industry.
And this is also important to us:
Our managing directors have signed the BSCI Code of Conduct. The BSCI Code of Conduct is based on the conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child and on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, the UN Global Compact, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and other internationally recognised agreements.
With the signature of this code of conduct the companies are obliged to recognise social and environmental standards specified in this code of conduct within their sphere of influence and to take measures in the context of their corporate policy which are suitable for their implementation and fulfilment. Supplier companies are to ensure that the code of conduct is also adhered to by subcontractors involved in production processes during the final manufacturing stages, which have been assigned by BSCI members.
