Responsible corporate governance

Corporate Governance

Responsible corporate governance

We actively work to ensure that corporate governance is characterised by transparency and accountability. In doing so, we rely internally as well as externally on the established values and principles.

Compliance with the law, this also applies to partners and suppliers

As a German company, we comply with nationally applicable legal provisions and reject any kind of corruption and bribery in the sense of the corresponding UN Convention (United Nations Convention against Corruption of 2003, in force since 2005).
In our cooperation with partners and suppliers who, among other things, operate outside Germany, we ensure that they comply with applicable laws and other legal provisions of the countries in which they operate. In countries with weak institutional frameworks, our partners and suppliers should use good corporate practice from their own home country for responsible corporate governance.

Integrity as a fundamental principle of our actions

In dealing with external stakeholders as well as its own employees, syracom is guided by universally valid ethical values and principles. This concerns righteousness, respect for human dignity, openness and equal treatment of people regardless of their religion, world view, gender and ethnicity.

We promote transparency, acting with integrity coupled with responsible management and control in the company. In doing so, we pursue clean and recognised business practices and fair competition.

Dialogue-oriented transparent communication

syracom communicates its values and corporate guidelines in an open and dialogue-oriented manner. Information is transparent and provided in a timely manner to employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

All documents and records are dutifully prepared, not unfairly altered or destroyed, and properly stored. Trade secrets and business information of partners are treated sensitively and confidentially.

Expressing opinions as a central part of the syracom feedback culture
