Corporate Values and Policies
In agreement with a responsible management approach, Fraport is committed to upholding the principles of nationally and internationally recognized standards of behavior:
- OECD Guidelines
These Guidelines were adopted in 1976. They are principles and standards of conduct for responsible business operations of companies. The Guidelines contain recommendations for a responsible conduct as regards transparency in business activities, working relationships, environment, corruption, consumer protection, technology transfer, competition and taxes.
- ILO Core Labor Standards
The CLS were set up in a declaration of the International Labor Organization (ILO) in 1998. They represent a set of social standards in the framework of world trade order. The four basic principles are freedom of association and protection of the right to organize, abolition of forced labor, abolition of child labor and elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
- The ten Principles of UN Global Compact
Since 1999, the UN Global Compact is the largest and most important network for civic engagement and corporate social responsibility worldwide. Its participants publish a yearly “Communication on Progress” report about the ten Principles. The subjects dealt with are human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. We document the implementation of the ten principles by our corporate management in our GRI Report (p. 78 f.). For further information, please consult the “2015 Compact - Gute Reise! We make it happen!” report.
- German Sustainability Code
Our “2015 Compact” Report and the GRI Report (G4 Core) has been validated according to the German Sustainability Code; we have submitted the Declaration of Compliance. For further information, visit the website of the German Sustainability Code.
In order to integrate them even further into the company, Fraport has adopted two Codes of Conduct: One for our employees and one for our suppliers. The umbrella for these voluntary commitments is Fraport’s Policy.
Fraport advocates a broad understanding of the sustainability philosophy in the entire value-added chain. Our Supplier Code of Conduct contains clear guidelines for our suppliers. Already back in 2009, we signed the code of conduct of the German Supply Chain Management, Procurement and Logistics Association (BME), which is one of the largest European buyers’ association.
Further information, such as current tenders, electronic invoicing details and data regarding airport charges can be found in the Business Services section.
Fraport respects the cultural, ethical, social, political and legal diversity of all nations and communities. In the framework of Diversity Management Fraport’s employees make the individuality of our workforce an integral part of our human resources strategy and organizational development. The human rights aspects being of paramount importance, Fraport has included this subject in our Group-wide Codes of Conducts. Please consult the GRI Report 2015, page 62 et seq. for detailed information dealing with human rights.
