Our Code of Conduct in detail:

ZVEI’s guide for member companies

The ZVEI and its member companies assume social responsibility in a corporate context. The ZVEI Code of Conduct was developed for this purpose. It covers international standards and serves as a guideline for companies to make their own declarations to customers or to demand corresponding declarations from suppliers.

The ZVEI Code of Conduct reflects the association’s shared value base and promotes socially responsible corporate governance. More than 550 companies have signed this code, which at the same time serves as recognition in business relationships and enables suppliers to apply it without having to sign additional company codes.
