CURRENTA also undertakes to observe human rights and environmental due diligence obligations in an appropriate manner in its supply chains and in its own business operations with the aim of preventing or minimizing corresponding risks or ending the violation of these obligations.


  • CURRENTA appoints a Compliance Officer. The same applies to the compliance officers of the subsidiaries.

  • CURRENTA ensures the functionality of this Corporate Compliance Guideline by implementing the necessary framework conditions and providing the required resources.

  • Functionality and effectiveness are reviewed on a regular basis. Permanent monitoring with ongoing evaluation and reporting is intended to ensure the ongoing improvement of this Corporate Compliance Guideline. In addition, the Audit Department may review the effectiveness of this Corporate Compliance Guideline at regular intervals on behalf of the Executive Board.

Report violations

If violations of these principles, in particular human rights and environmental due diligence, are observed, they must be reported immediately either to the supervisor, alternatively to the responsible Compliance Officer or to the management of CURRENTA’s Human Resources Department. The report can be made anonymously.

CURRENTA has also set up a hotline to Ethicspoint, a fully independent organization based in the UK. This is staffed around the clock and can be reached at 0800-1800042 (NOTE: For calls from the CHEMPARK, dial the additional 0 for the outside line). Ethicspoint operators answer the calls and greet the caller in English. The caller is asked to stay on the line until the interpreter has joined the conversation. It is possible to report problems in Ethicspoint’s online reporting system, at the following web address: EthicsPoint – Currenta GmbH & Co. OHG.

You can find the data protection declaration for the whistleblower system here. Any employee who contacts the hotline or a contact person directly for the purpose of reviewing an issue is assured that he or she will not be harmed or disadvantaged as a result.

The rules of procedure for dealing with complaints and suspected compliance cases can be found here.

In addition, we refer to the possibility of reporting to the external federal reporting office at the Federal Office of Justice.
