Corporate Social Responsibility
Continuity, change and progress - Rheinmetall has been in constant motion since it was founded 125 years ago. Entrepreneurial activities have far-reaching effects. A company can enjoy long-term success only if it integrates coordinated economic, ecological and social factors into business activities and creates added value for itself, its employees and society. It is therefore a matter of course for Rheinmetall to do everything possible to contribute to the company being economically stable and ecologically responsible.
“Honesty, integrity, openness, and transparency – these are the principles that guide Rheinmetall. They are the principles for which we, the members of the Executive Board, and I personally, as Executive Board Chairman, stand. Ethical business conduct necessarily includes rigorous adherence to every principle of good corporate management. First and foremost, that means complying with our strict rules on how to act with integrity in dealings with business partners, fellow employees, shareholders, and the public. This applies throughout every business unit, at headquarters, and at every subsidiary in Germany and abroad. Yes, our desire is to bring every one of our transactions to a successful conclusion. However, we wish to conduct only those transactions that are in keeping with applicable laws and compatible with the rules of good corporate management and compliance. We must all make this a personal commitment, and it is what I expect of every employee at Rheinmetall. Otherwise, we will be harming Rheinmetall and impeding our future success.”
