Compliance / Code of Conduct

Signet Compliance

The IK Industrievereionigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V., responsible for the entire German plastics industry, developed the Code of Conduct of the German Association of Plastics Converters (GKV). Already in the first few months many IK members have taken this industry code for their company. The GKV-Code of Conduct includes two important topics, on the one hand ethical and social clauses, on the other hand targets for competition and antitrust law.

The most medium-sized companieshave allways seen themselves as part of a social community, and accordingly taken responsibility towards employees, customers and society.
The GKV-Code of Conduct supports the participating companies which now have the ability to integrate corporate responsibility into the business processes and make them visible. Especially the suppliers are asked from their major customers to relate to ethical and social questions. The GKV-Code of Conduct includes all international standards of human rights on child labor to environmental protection, and is therefore very useful in these cases, as the current practice shows. It not only strengthens the position of the signatory organizations, would also guarantee a clear competitive advantage.

The competitive control has increased dramatically in recent years and therefore the risks for companies. Ensuring compliance with laws and regulations, also called compliance comes from the competition and antitrust law requirements therefore of particular importance. SHI Code of Conduct includes the topics bribery and corruption clearly worded instructions. By informing employees about the contents of the GKV code of conduct as part of the certification process, thus, liability risks are reduced or shifted. Overall, the SHI is industry code for most member companies a first effective tool sustainable, entrepreneurial activity to show both internally and externally.
