Compliance: Fighting discrimination and corruption
Since our 2010 Sustainability Report included a detailed discussion of our compliance management system, this report focuses just on a few major activities in 2011.
In March 2011, a regular survey went out to all companies to inquire about incidents and violations regarding HR risks in the past year. None were reported. In Germany, all employees of ALTANA attended refresher courses on the Equal Opportunity Act (AGG).
In addition, the female employees of German ALTANA companies received a survey on the topic of women in leadership positions. It was designed to find out whether the company discriminates against women and how to counter such practices.
