Compliance

Compliance is not just a technical term for cluetec as a part of the Possehl Group, but an elementary component in our daily activities. ​

That is why trust is essential for cluetecs success as part of an internationally active group of companies. Good cooperation is based on the trust of customers and business partners, employees and the respective local business environment. The prerequisite for this is consistent adherence to high standards of social behavior such as integrity, loyalty and honesty.

​It is our responsibility to create and maintain universally valid basic values of our behavior that go beyond the applicable laws and that should form the basis for every entrepreneurial activity. Therefore, we at Possehl Digital are guided by the Code of Conduct of the Possehl Group. This code forms the framework of responsible conduct for all employees, partners and managing directors and can be found under the following link.

​ Whistleblowing System ​

Possehl Digital offers the possibility to contact an internal, outsourced and independent whistleblower portal in case of suspicion or knowledge of illegal or unethical actions and thus to contribute to the detection of violations of rules. ​

It is possible to report misconduct by employees in our group of companies as well as by our suppliers and service providers with regard to possible violations of the law or actions that are harmful to the company, such as corruption, bribery, fraud, other criminal offences, child labour, slavery, lack of occupational safety, exploitation and discrimination. ​

Whistleblowers will not suffer any disadvantage as a result of making a report. Reports can be made in German and English. Reports can also be made anonymously if desired.
