Our Philosophy, Ethics and Basic Conduct Guidelines
Corporate Purchasing at Continental follows the same rules as our parent company and especially we expect from our suppliers to commit to our Business Partner Code of Conduct (BPCoC).
Sustainability is a key element within our company. That is why we also expect all our suppliers and business partners to adhere to the same level of commitment we implement internally.
We have a Sustainability Management function within Corporate Purchasing to ensure that we work together in creating a better and more sustainable world for future generations. This function works close together with our Corporate Sustainability department.
We as Purchasing trust that compliance is a key factor of satisfying requirements and expectations of our suppliers. We request our suppliers who are aware of illegal and dubious business activities involving Continental and its employees to use our Compliance & Anti-Corruption Hotline. To disregard and ignore such behaviour is not acceptable.
