Human Rights, Business Ethics & Diversity
At Christof Industries, we feel a duty to uphold our ethical values in our approach to business. Our Code of Conduct defines our stance on anti-corruption, transparency and reducing workplace violence and harassment as an equal-opportunity employer. Diversity and inclusion is also an important aspect for us – as a first step, we are working with UN Women on achieving SDG 5 on Gender Equality.
Empowering People Through Education
We strive to empower our employees by offering professional development opportunities and ongoing state-of-the-art training. We are aiming to take a holistic approach to learning and development, encompassing a combination of knowledge and skills acquired through on-the-job experiences, collaborative projects and digital learning, supported by activities such as mentoring and coaching.
Corporate Culture & Community Involvement
Motivation and the determination to master challenges with a spirit of innovation are strongly represented within our corporate culture. We are empowering people by working with strong teams and supporting local communities through social projects and engagement. We also have a sustainability ambassador programme, where employees who are motivated and passionate about sustainability can come together to bring about real change.
UN Global Compact Principles
To reinforce our empowering people strategy, we align with UN Global Compact and have integrated the principles of the UN Global Compact in our Code of Conduct through our commitment to upholding human rights, standards at work, environmental protection and the fight against corruption. We expect the same commitment from our internal and external stakeholders.
We have also partaken in a number of smaller social initiatives at our various subsidiaries, including supporting the RNIB in the UK, Mission Hoffnung and Kinder-Krebs-Sozial Hilfe in Austria and Kindernothilfe Essen in Germany.
