We are convinced that high ethical standards play a significant role in ensuring our continued growth and success. At Demant, we strive to do business with integrity and honesty. Our primary goal is for the users to benefit from our products, and we disapprove of business conduct that contributes to distorting market mechanisms. Equally, we want to protect any user data that we process. We increase our strategic efforts and focus on business ethics.
The Demant Code of Conduct
Recently, we formulated a new Demant Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards and ethical principles applicable to all employees regardless of location and nature of work. We adhere to the laws of each country in which we operate, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act. We conduct business in line with the UN Global Compact principles and relevant internationally recognized standards. We adhere to quality regulations and conduct responsible marketing.
The Demant Code of Conduct covers anti-corruption, compliance with competition laws, fraud, data privacy, human rights, environment, workplace environment, business partner relations, export controls and sanctions as well as our whistle-blower hotline.
Demant Third Party Compliance Code
We also recognise an obligation to shoulder our responsibility towards the people and organisations we work with and to be aware of how we influence our surroundings through our business. Demant is committed to responsible sourcing and collaboration with third parties. We expect business partners to adhere to all applicable laws, regulations and our Demant Third Party Compliance Code, which can be found here.
