Freudenberg is a company whose Business Groups are entrepreneurially-driven and operate with a large degree of independence. Along with the holding company, these Business Groups are therefore responsible for conduct that complies with laws and regulations. Both the Board of Management of Freudenberg SE and the top management of the individual Business Groups clearly subscribe to this.
At the holding level, the focus is on compliance issues of critical importance throughout the Business Groups and in an international context that could pose a threat to Freudenberg, especially in terms of the company’s reputation.
Given the Freudenberg Group’s global presence and its product and market diversity, anti-corruption and anti-trust legislation are seen as potential risk areas.
