Corporate Responsibility

As a subsidiary of Marquard & Bahls AG we take our corporate responsibility very seriously. This includes our commitment to and involvement in the areas of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, corporate citizenship and the ecological responsibility towards our environment.

  • Corporate governance includes rules and practices to ensure accountability, responsibility, fairness, and transparency in the relationship with all our stakeholders. These principles are defined in the Marquard & Bahls Code of Conduct.
  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR) for us, means the voluntary integration of social and environmental aspects in all our business activities.
  • We particularly stipulate our responsibility for health, safety, security & environment (HSSE) in our HSSE Policy.
  • Corporate citizenship substantiates our social engagement in local neighborhoods, our contributions to charity organizations as well as research.
