Compliance

Acting with integrity. In any and all situations.

Our Code of Conduct

Do the right thing. Even when no one is looking.

As a globally operating company, we bear a special responsibility for people and the environment. Accepting this and adopting it as the maxim governing our actions is an integral element of Deutsche Hospitality's self-perception. This does not mean that we merely comply with applicable law and existing guidelines: Using our corporate values of trust, transparency and integrity as foundations, we have laid down binding requirements for all company divisions and departments as well as business relationships: our Code of Conduct.

We unite employees worldwide in one team. By practicing shared values and continuously developing ourselves further, we increase trust and confidence in ourselves as a company steeped in tradition. Our corporate governance system supports us in this endeavor and also helps us to identify, assess and monitor risks within the company.

Whistleblowing. Anonymously and confidentially.

Acting with integrity does not mean merely doing the right thing when nobody is looking. It also means blowing the whistle on misconduct. And being able to count on support. 
That's why we have the DH Speak-Up Line, our whistleblowing system. Employees, business contacts and customers can use our Speak-Up Line to report compliance violations. Without any fuss and anonymously. Serious tip-offs help us protect our company, our business partnerships and individuals. Of course we always respect the legitimate interests of the individuals concerned, both in the process itself and in the investigation.
