Responsible corporate behavior means not only including, but sometimes moving beyond purely profit-oriented or legal and regulatory considerations when doing business.

For us, the sustainable creation of value implies strong and effective corporate governance. Furthermore, we are committed to being an equal opportunity employer, to safeguarding financial privacy, to fighting money laundering, to protecting the environment and to contributing to the communities which we are a part of.

We are continually checking the expectations our stakeholders have with regard to our conduct. These expectations are high and some patience is probably necessary. Progress cannot be simply decreed from the top of a company. Responsible behavior is ultimately driven by our employees, our culture and our values.
