Focus Area Compliance at HOCHTIEF

As an international provider of construction-related services, HOCHTIEF operates in countries with very different values, political and legal systems. Compliance therefore plays a major role at HOCHTIEF. For us, this means compliance with the respective law and our internal company rules.

Within the Group, binding rules of conduct apply: All employees of our Group companies are obliged to act in accordance with the rules defined in the HOCHTIEF Code of Conduct and to gear all of their actions to the internal directives. They have to prove sincerity and fairness in all aspects of their business activities. We expect the same from our contract partners and subcontractors.

We take care to ensure that the law and our high internal standards are complied with, and we respond uncompromisingly to any infringements.

The Compliance organization team supports HOCHTIEF's employees in avoiding non-compliance and the resulting risks by providing targeted information, personal advice and regular training. Employees can report irregularities – anonymously or confidentially if they wish – via a whistleblower system.

We have been pursuing our systematic anti-corruption policy for many years already. HOCHTIEF became a member of Transparency International as early as 1999, for example.

Our objective:

We aim to set standards with our Code of Conduct.
