Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct, which is available in 16 languages, is a valuable guide for Komax employees in their day-to-day work. It is built on the ethical principles Komax has been applying for many years. The Code of Conduct defines general rules of conduct and addresses issues such as equality of opportunity, conflicts of interest, health and safety, and sustainability. In addition, it defines the five core values – innovation, customer focus, success, quality, and responsibility – that constitute a key component of the Komax Group’s identity.

All employees of the Komax Group are bound by the values and Code of Conduct. They are required to act as role models and to “live” and adhere to the values and rules of conduct. This means that, in various situations, there are specific questions employees will be called upon to ask themselves. Such as: Is what I am doing in line with the Code of Conduct? Are my actions appropriate and can I take responsibility for their consequences? Is the decision I am making in the long-term interests of the Komax Group?

Reporting breaches of the Code of Conduct

Breaches of the Code of Conduct are not tolerated anywhere in the Komax Group and will result in appropriate consequences for offending employees. This applies both to those who have broken the rules and all those who knew about the breaches but failed to report them.

Those who become aware of such breaches must report them immediately to their direct line manager or next most senior line manager, or to the HR department. Alternatively, the independent external whistleblowing service can be contacted (
