Transparency, fairness, equality - these are the values we live by.
We build trust
Compliance principles form the basis for fair business conduct and social dialogue. AMAG Austria Metall AG is committed to being a trustworthy business partner and employer by complying with laws and voluntary agreements, and by transparent reporting of financial and non-financial business activities.
Our attitude defines our work. Consequently, as a leading aluminium manufacturer, AMAG is aware of its responsibility towards all stakeholders - business partners, shareholders and investors, employees, society as well as government institutions. The Code of Conduct sets out the central corporate values that form the basis for morally and legally correct behavior. These values apply not only to AMAG and its subsidiaries, but also to suppliers.
We take responsibility - at our sites and along the supply chain.
AMAG Austria Metall AG respects and promotes compliance with human rights both within its own company and in the supply chain. Employees are treated in accordance with the principle of equal opportunity - i.e. without distinctions based on gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation or other status. The aim is to exceed legal requirements wherever possible and so create an optimal working environment.
The responsibility to comply with internationally applicable human rights is also considered in the selection of suppliers and is a prerequisite for business partners. Basic requirements of the compliance rules for AMAG suppliers relate not only to human rights but also to management, occupational safety, environmental protection and energy efficiency. They are integrated into AMAG's general purchasing conditions.
If you become aware of a violation of any applicable law or internal regulations at AMAG (Code of Conduct, Compliance Rules for Suppliers), you can report this via the Compliance Line. Concerns are consistently monitored by the responsible departments. The Compliance Line is available to employees and the general public alike. The identity of the informants is kept confidential, and all reports are treated anonymously*. It is also possible for employees to contact the HR department directly in the event of violations.
* This does not include misuse of the Compliance Line.
