Corporate Compliance/misconduct

The WMF’s corporate culture is characterised by clear responsibility, mutual respect and trust in our business partners and employees. However, this does not rule out the risk of infringement of the law and/or individual misconduct with absolute certainty.

The WMF strives to minimise these risks. A compliance organisation and a global ombudsman system has been set up for this purpose. Both employees and third parties (customers, suppliers, etc.) can confidentially and – upon request – anonymously contact an external, independent lawyer should they have any information about economic offences, infringements of anti-trust law or breaches of internal guidelines, for example. His contact details are as follows:

Dr Carsten Thiel von Herff, LL.M. (lawyer)
Detmolder Straße 30
33604 BIELEFELD
GERMANY

Freephone*: 00800 “OMBUDSMANN” = 00800 6628376266

*Calls made to the 00800 number are free for callers based in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the USA.

The designated lawyer can also be anonymously contacted through „commUNITYcate“, the WMF’s certified compliance whistleblower system. In offering this system, we are providing all of the WMF’s employees and business partners with a protected and confidential channel for reporting compliance breaches: commUNITYcate
