17. Human Rights

The company discloses what measures it takes, strategies it pursues and targets it sets for itself and for the supply chain for ensuring that human rights are respected globally and that forced and child labour as well as all forms of exploitation are prevented. Information should also be provided on the results of the measures and on any relevant risks.

Deutsche Wohnen only operates in Germany, as do its direct suppliers. Compliance with national legislation virtually rules out the possibility of human rights violations. The applicable statutory regulations include, for example, the ban on child labour and forced labour, anti-discrimination legislation, the right to freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
The protection of human rights is a matter of course for us: this is an integral part of our corporate culture. Deutsche Wohnen encourages diversity and prohibits all discrimination against our employees, among other things on grounds such as gender, age, ethnic origin, disability or sexual orientation.
