Guardrail for working together fairly
DMK Group’s core values are entrepreneurial, fair and innovative. They also apply when it concerns the compliance of rules and regulations. In doing so, we always act responsibly, strategically and sustainably, thus securing the future of our company.
What compliance means to us
As an international dairy group, DMK Group is obliged to comply with numerous legal regulations. Any violation against legal provisions can have serious consequences. Compliance measures are intended to help make it easier to comply with rules. Damage can thus be averted and violations against these rules actively prevented.
We follow a clear code
In order to help our employees protect their own interests and those of the DMK Group, we have developed our own code of conduct. This is supplemented by internal guidelines in order to make it easier to comply with legal provisions.
Confidentiality and protection for whistleblowers.
If we want to remain true to our values and rules, we cannot simply accept misconduct. This is why employees have access to an ombudsman who they can contact to report any violations anonymously and who is bound to secrecy. The procedure for anonymous tips is governed by rules of procedure. Business partners also have the opportunity to contact the ombudsman in confidence, among other things to point out human rights or environmental risks or violations in their own business operations and in the supply chain. The DMK Group is committed to protecting an honest whistle-blower of any form of influence.
The Whistleblower Protection Act additionally provides for the possibility of an external report. For this purpose, the Federal Government has established the External Federal Reporting Office at the Federal Office of Justice (BfJ). Information on the legal scope of application, the possible reporting channels and the reporting procedure can be obtained directly from the Federal External Reporting Office.
