Uniper Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct, which is binding for all employees, defines basic principles for a wide range of issues, such as combating corruption and human rights violations. It provides guidance and support for conducting business and behaving in the workplace in compliance with the law and company rules. Each year, members of the Board of Management and senior managers sign a written pledge to adhere to the code. The code is reviewed and updated periodically to ensure appropriateness and compliance with company and regulatory requirements.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Whenever possible, we strive to work with third parties whose values and principles are comparable to ours. We therefore require our suppliers to sign a declaration of compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct.

These risks include corruption, money laundering, terrorism financing, and the violation of economic sanctions.
