Beiersdorf AG

Speak up. We care.

Our brands stand for trust and high quality. Observing the law and our internal guidelines is a core part of our business culture and at the heart of the trust that our customers, consumers, and employees place in us every day.

„Our business culture and behavior as a company is based on our four Core Values - Care, Trust, Simplicity, and Courage. These values guide us and represent the way we do business in a compliant way following high ethical standards.
The BKMS® platform is designed to ensure that our work continues to be based on these ethical principles. The Executive Board encourages you to speak up about misconduct that you feel needs to be addressed and to make use of the platform or any other reporting channel you feel comfortable with.“

Beiersdorf has an interest in learning about compliance violations in order to maintain the company's integrity and to avoid potential reputational damage to our brands.

Our employees, customers, suppliers, and other business partners can use our secure whistleblowing system (BKMS® Incident Reporting) to submit reports on the topics below.

  • Manipulation of accounting and internal reporting
  • Corruption
  • Fraud/ Breach of trust/ Embezzlement/ Theft
  • Antitrust law infringements

Please note: The whistleblowing system is not designed to handle emergency calls. Please use the public emergency call system if there is a direct risk to people.

Whistleblowers can submit reports worldwide at any time of day or night. The BKMS® Incident Reporting will enable you to stay anonymous if you so wish, as long as you do not enter any data that permits you to be identified. Naturally you can choose to submit your name and hence make it easier to establish the facts of the case. Your report will be sent to the Corporate Auditing and Corporate Compliance Management departments.

Please use the whistleblowing system responsibly. Please only provide information if you are convinced of its accuracy to the best of your knowledge and belief.

You can of course also still submit reports on potential compliance violations using existing employee reporting methods (such as via your superiors or the Compliance Hotline).
