Our Code of Conduct

To ensure that we – as a company and as individual employees – conduct our business in a legal, ethical and responsible manner and with due respect to the environment.

Code of Conduct in brief

We strongly believe that ethical behavior and good corporate citizenship are fundamental to our long-term development and are thus in the interest of all our stakeholders. True to Straumann’s guiding principle of ‘Simply doing more’, the Straumann Group Code of Conduct also accommodates voluntary codes and regulations of our industry.

This Code of Conduct is based on four principles:

  • ethical and legal business behavior;
  • fair and respectful treatment of clients and commercial partners, society in general, the authorities, and the environment;
  • fair and respectful treatment of all Straumann employees, and
  • commitment to Straumann, its reputation and corporate goals.

A code for all employees

All our employees are required to be familiar with this Code of Conduct, conduct themselves in accordance with it, and seek to avoid improper behavior.

Straumann has also established procedures to facilitate the reporting of breaches and to protect individuals who report such matters. This initiative and the establishment of the Code have been approved by Straumann's Board of Directors.
