FUCHS Compliance Communication - the reporting system for compliance violations

Our business activities are guided by our five core values

  • Trust
  • Creating value
  • Respect
  • Reliability
  • Integrity

These values influence our daily actions and serve as the foundation for our current market position and long-term competitiveness. They are supported by the principles and rules documented in the Code of Conduct. With the FUCHS Compliance Communication system, we would like to simplify the reporting of compliance violations while also protecting your anonymity. Our goal is to uncover violations of laws and internal rules as well as misconduct as early as possible in order to prevent possible harm to the FUCHS PETROLUB Group.

Compliance violations and misconduct by individual colleagues can adversely affect our business and financial success, endanger jobs and significantly damage our Group's public image. We want to work together to prevent this and so protect the Group and its employees. To achieve this goal, it is important that FUCHS PETROLUB is made aware of verifiable or suspected compliance violations.

If you have concrete knowledge or suspicions that certain actions or situations at FUCHS may be in violation of the Code of Conduct, other internal regulations or laws, please do not hesitate to communicate these concerns promptly. Possible violations should first be discussed with your supervisor or the Local Compliance Officer. However, if you are of the opinion that these discussions have not been or would not be effective, FUCHS Compliance Communication offers you another channel for the submission of your report. Because we want to effectively protect employees from retaliation for reporting violations, you may send your reports anonymously if you wish.

FUCHS Compliance Communication is a state-of-the-art reporting and communication system. By creating and using a secured postbox, you can continue to cooperate in the clarification of incidents after submitting your report, even if you would like to remain anonymous.

We would like to thank you in advance for your assistance and your conscientiousness!
