Case Description

Corporate identity and image are increasingly not only the result of economic and financial performance, but also the principles, values, behaviour and options therein dominant.

Corporate ethics are, first and foremost, those of company employees, who should be compliant with a number of standards of conduct and principles, comprising unimpeachable behaviour.

Such aspects are all the more important, the greater a company’s social importance and visibility.
