The Code of Conduct applies to all employees of the BKW Group and to all external persons working for BKW, regardless of their position, role or location. It describes various situations encountered in our day-to-day work and helps our employees to behave correctly even in difficult situations in accordance with the law, social requirements and corporate principles.
We observe the following four principles in our day-to-day work:
- We respect people, their rights and their dignity in all respects
- We conduct ourselves based on trust and respect and we show each other appreciation
- We accept our responsibility towards the environment and the climate and contribute to a future worth living
- We prioritise correct conduct and integrity in all our relationships in both the physical and the digital world
Reporting violations anonymously
Bribery, discrimination, sexual harassment, environmental violations, data misuse or offences against property – compliance violations can occur in a range of different areas. Violations or well-founded suspicions thereof can be reported anonymously within the BKW Group. We have set up the BKW Integrity Line whistleblowing system to enable anonymous reporting. Various example cases are available to help employees when reporting.
