In everything we do, we always act with integrity, righteousness and exclusively in accordance with applicable laws and regulations in order to secure and promote the trust of our business partners and our industry, but also of our employees, in us and our products. It is precisely this trust in us and our products that shapes our business activities and forms the basis for our success.

Not only do we demand the aforesaid from ourselves, but also expect all those who we do business with to follow the same principles.

To ensure the above, Anschütz maintains a comprehensive ethics and compliance program. Details can be found on this page as well as on the pages linked thereunder.

Supplier Code of Conduct

For Anschütz, responsible procurement means that we are committed to taking into account social, ethical and environmental requirements and standards in relation to our products and supply chains as well as in the organization of our supplier relationships. We value our suppliers as important partners in fulfilling this commitment and, as a conscientious company, we attach great importance to cooperative relationships based on trust, fairness and transparency.

Anschütz GmbH has therefore developed a Supplier Code of Conduct to establish clear guidelines for our suppliers and to ensure that common values are shared in terms of ethical behavior, sustainability and integrity. These guidelines serve as the basis for a successful and responsible cooperation between Anschütz GmbH and our suppliers.
