Responsibility and ethical behavior
Straumann’s internal Code of Conduct for employees defines our expectations for ethical behavior in all our business activities. Being an integral part of the company’s employment contracts, it prohibits any form of human rights violation, bribery, corruption, unfair competition, misleading marketing, etc. Our onboarding training for new employees focuses on corporate alignment including this Code, which protects employees from discrimination (unequal treatment based on gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation).
Ethical supply chain
Adherence to ethical behavior is not only expected from our employees but also our suppliers. We revised our ‘Code of Conduct for Suppliers’ in January 2017, which refers to working conditions, human rights protection, business ethics, legal compliance, and environmental protection in the supply chain.
