Corporate Social Responsibility
a. Ethics/Corporate governance in relation to business and energy efficiency
It is one of the fundamental principles of LOGSTOR to strictly observe all national and international laws and regulations under which LOGSTOR is operating and to maintain high ethical standards in all aspects of conducting its business. This principle is further detailed in the central group policies "Code of Business Ethics", "Anti-Trust Policy", "Anti-Corruption Policy", "Responsible Business Partner Policy" and "International Sanctions Policy".
