With the Code of Conduct, the Steinbrecher Group has defined binding and generally applicable values that are decisive for the sustainable and responsible business activities of the company. Only by ensuring that all employees, suppliers and business partners of the Steinbrecher Group comply with these rules can we ensure that fair, honest and law-abiding conduct forms the basis of our business activities. Compliance with these values, rules and laws can only be guaranteed if there is an opportunity to report violations.

Accordingly, our reporting office provides you with an internal whistleblower reporting system to guarantee trust in the Steinbrecher Group and comply with our legal obligations:

Electronic reporting office:

Telephone: 04462 - 955 123

We would like to encourage all persons (employees, business partners, suppliers, etc.) to use the channel provided to report any violations identified. You can use this protected "channel" to report violations of the law or other grievances within the company anonymously (personal details are voluntary). Your report enables us to act quickly and rectify any irregularities. We take the requirements for the protection of whistleblowers seriously and ensure that you do not have to fear any disadvantages due to or following a justified report. However, if you intentionally submit a false and untruthful report, you may be liable to prosecution and/or consequences under employment law.

Personal data of you and the person(s) affected by the report will be treated in strict confidence and processed in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We are also obliged under Section 8 of the Whistleblower Protection Act to protect the identity of the whistleblower and the person(s) affected by the report as far as possible. This means that personal data is only disclosed to the responsible persons in the internal reporting office and may only be passed on in exceptional cases defined by law (in cases of gross negligence, deliberate misrepresentation or at the request of a law enforcement authority). The reports are documented in accordance with the legal requirements. For further information on data protection, please refer to our data protection information under the link
