Our values

As a company in the public spotlight, we are aware of our special responsibility. In addition to our own actions, this also applies to the activities of our business partners. Our DB Code of Conduct transparently sets out binding ethical and legal standards for everyone involved.

Clear and simple: the DB Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct is based, among other things, on the principles of the UN Global Compact and builds on the same principles that we have defined in the code of ethics for our own managers and employees. With regard to our suppliers, we also attach particular importance to compliance with antitrust law. The DB Code of Conduct and further information can be found on the compliance pages for business partners.
