Digiteq Automotive s.r.o. and the entire Volkswagen Group pay particular attention to their compliance with any legislation, internal rules and ethical and other voluntarily adopted rules. Compliance is not merely restricted to business relations, but relates to any activities within and beyond the group. By adopting this approach, Volkswagen has declared that its actions will comply with the requirements imposed by the legal and ethical rules pertaining to competition, the financial sector and taxes, environmental protection and employment relationships, including the provision of equal opportunities.
The Volkswagen Group is convinced that economic success is only sustainable through compliant behaviour. These voluntarily adopted codes of conduct, which consist of both legal and internal requirements, obligations based on adopted commitments and ethical principles, form an integral part of the company and are the basis for its decision-making. Compliance-related activities contribute to fulfilling the strategy adopted by the Volkswagen Group and are part of the worldwide compliance effort.
The VW Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct summarises the fundamental principles for the conduct of the Volkswagen Group’s employees and serves as an aid when handling legal and ethical challenges. The Code of Conduct was updated in 2017.
The Volkswagen Group´s good reputation, which is dependent upon the determination of its employees throughout the world to act in accordance with the Code of Conduct and all the legal regulations, constitutes a thing of fundamental value. The VW Code of Conduct constitutes an integral part of the company culture. Digiteq Automotive s.r.o. also motivates its business partners to adopt the aforementioned principles as their own.
The Ombudsman system
The Volkswagen Group, which Digiteq Automotive s.r.o. is a part of, has instigated an ombudsman system for the reporting of all matters of corruption and any suspected corrupt practices. Each employee is entitled to contact one of the two independent ombudsmen, if they have uncovered even the slightest hint of corruption. Similarly, our suppliers, customers and any other entities which come into contact with Digiteq Automotive s.r.o. can also contact the ombudsman. The system’s objective is to prevent corrupt practices by assisting in uncovering and resolving any cases of corruption. The ombudsmen are obliged to maintain confidentiality as to the source of the notification during their activities and the identity of the whistle-blower is therefore reliably protected.
