We are also committed to acting responsibly in accordance with ethical and legal standards outside our direct sphere of influence. In our Code of Conduct for Suppliers, we not only require compliance with health and safety standards, but also respect for basic employee rights regarding working hours, remuneration, freedom of association and collective bargaining. This code forms the basis of our cooperation with external business partners.

It is of central importance for us to be informed about unintentional and intentional misconduct. We have therefore created the opportunity to report suspected and proven violations of human rights and environmental due diligence obligations and VTG's internal guidelines to employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders via the protected reporting system "VTG Integrity Line". The report is made anonymously, unless a conscious decision is made to disclose the identity. In this way, we create a protected space and an independent reporting channel.
