Efficiency as a key driver for sustainability

Corporate Sustainability

Corporate sustainability starts with a company’s value system to doing business. To our belief such a value system should ensure that the company meets its fundamental social and ecological responsibilities.

  • With our Code of Conduct for Employees we ensure that our employees are commited to share our company's values.
  • With our Code of Conduct for Suppliers we ensure that our suppliers are commited to share our company's values.
  • With our Global Purchasing Policy we ensure that social and ecological responsibilities are considered in our purchasing decisions.
  • We are particpating in UN Global Compact and fully support the UN Global Compact ten principles.
  • Our CSR management system gets reviewed by EcoVadis at least yearly.

The BARBE Group of Companies is a signatory to the UN Global Compact!

The UN Global Compact is a non-binding United Nations pact which encourages businesses to establish such a value system. For this purpose it provides primarily a framework for businesses, which states Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

We fully support these principles. Therefore BARBE Beteiligungen GmbH has decided to join in the United Nations Global Compact and is an official participant since December 11, 2018. We thereby commit to adopt the principles and to report on their implementation. Our "letter of commitment" is linked on our participant's page on the website of UN Global Compact.

By incorporating the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact into our strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, we will not only uphold our basic social and ecological responsibilities, but also set the stage for the long-term continuation of our success.

We want to ensure to enact the same values and principles wherever we have a presence. We will work on the implementation in all operating subsidiaries throughout 2019.
