6. Rules and Processes

The company discloses how the sustainability strategy is implemented in the operational business by way of rules and processes.

The Dussmann Group’s integrated management system is fundamentally certified according to international standards (ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, ISO 45001; also ISO 50001, as well as in several countries ISO 22000, EMAS and SA 8000) and is therefore suitable to clearly represent the business processes. The Group Sustainability Policy is also available to all internal and external stakeholders in the Integrated Management System (IMS).

The Dussmann Code of Conduct contains, among other things, the principles of the sustainability strategy. The Code of Conduct forms the basis of business relations with clients and suppliers and serves as an internal set of rules for employees.

The basic guidelines for document and process management are currently being revised. The goals are company-wide validity and the establishment of document management and process documentation as a set of rules and easily accessible sources of information.
