Compliance measures to ensure lawful behavior
The term “compliance” covers all measures taken to ensure that a company and its employees comply with the laws and regulations in force and observe all legal restrictions and prohibitions. The commitment to observe all national and international legal standards is a central principle in the Wienerberger Group. In view of the overriding importance of certain areas of law, Wienerberger decided to adopt its own guidelines and to ensure their stringent enforcement. For this reason, training sessions on issuer compliance are organized regularly in Vienna for the top management of the Wienerberger Holding and the top management of each business unit. Wienerberger’s Corporate Governance Report is contained in the 2014 Annual Report and published on the company’s website.
