Business Conduct

Unfair business practices have a high damage potential to the economy and the society. Burckhardt Compression is committed to conduct its business in an ethical, legal and environmentally and socially responsible manner. We expect similar conduct from every business partner with whom Burckhardt Compression has a commercial relationship. We consider all aspects in business conduct, with a specific focus on:

  • Anti-corruption
  • Free competition
  • Export compliance

Our Code of Conduct defines the fundamental standards and principles of how employees interact with each other and with partners, stakeholders and the environment. With the Code of Conduct for business partners, our suppliers, local agents and partners commit to conduct their business in an ethical, legal and environmentally and socially responsible manner. We provide awareness training for anti-corruption, promoting free competition and export compliance to our employees. We have audits of control procedures in place to prevent corruption and anti-competitive behavior.

Our Speak Up reporting channel is a third-party managed complaints tool which allows employees, business partners and third parties with knowledge of suspected misconduct to file a complaint. The system is designed to protect the identity of messengers and complaints can be reported also anonymously.
