United Internet assumes corporate responsibility to respect human rights and environmental standards. This applies to our own business operations as well as to our supply chains.
Responsible supply chains
Responsible supply chains are an important element in making our value creation sustainable and thus contributing to the environment and society. Close business relationships based on partnership form the basis for successful cooperation and resilient supply chains. This has become even more important with the requirements of the German Supply Chain Sustainability Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz - LkSG).
To ensure compliance with social and environmental standards, United Internet has established appropriate due diligence processes - both within the company and in its relationships with business partners. To realize our corporate responsibility, we rely on cooperation - with employees, business partners and suppliers. Only together, we can effectively counter risks in our supply chains.
Our approach and processes for implementing the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act are described in our Declaration of Principles on Human Rights.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct defines the expectations of our business partners with regard to the implementation of corporate due diligence obligations and describes the minimum requirements that must be observed in business transactions. Good and intensive cooperation with business partners is of the utmost importance to United Internet. Together, we want to place sustainable business practices at the centre of our actions and continue to improve.
