WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY

NIEBUHR GEARS HAS A CLEAR CSR POLICY

WE MAKE AN EXTRA EFFORT WHEN IT COMES TO SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

At Niebuhr Gears, we are conscious of the fact that we have a social responsibility. All our companies must observe the guidelines in our CSR policy (Corporate Social Responsibility) at all times. We will, of course, observe applicable legislation, international standards and human rights.

For Niebuhr Gears, however, this is not enough. In a wide range of areas, we have defined what it means to be a Niebuhr Gears partner, as an employee, customer or supplier. It is important to us to be seen as a reliable company that combines high ethical and moral standards with professional and commercial decisions.

We have prepared an international CSR policy which sets out clear guidelines in the following areas:

APPLICABLE LEGISLATION AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

Niebuhr Gears will at all times observe the laws which apply in the countries in which we manufacture our products. If Danish legislation or international standards specify stricter rules, Niebuhr Gears will observe such requirements wherever possible.

HUMAN RIGHTS

Applicable human rights must be accepted. Niebuhr Gears’ companies, subcontractors and partners do not tolerate child labour or forced labour. We do not discriminate on grounds of gender, religion or sexuality. We strive to treat everybody fairly in all aspects of their employment.

EMPLOYEE RIGHTS

Niebuhr Gears has described relevant conditions e.g. maximum working hours, rest periods, wages, holiday and sick pay. We have described how this information is freely available within the company and how we are involved and committed to employee relations.

WORKING ENVIRONMENT

Our working environment efforts are aimed at preventing and protecting our employees against health and safety hazards in the workplace. We are therefore working to:

  • replace hazardous substances with less hazardous substances
  • minimize accidents through training, documentation of accidents and emergency response plans
  • prepare safety data sheets and work instructions in the host country’s language
  • ensure that all employees are provided with the required safety equipment without the employee incurring additional costs

ENVIRONMENT

In the environmental area, we are working to:

  • ensure the sustainable use of resources
  • replace hazardous substances with less hazardous substances
  • avoid unnecessary waste
  • ensure the safe handling of waste
  • recycle waste wherever possible
  • reduce energy consumption as much as possible

Niebuhr Gears will train its employees in the handling and implementation of the measures adopted.

ANTI-CORRUPTION

Niebuhr Gears does not tolerate corruption, neither directly nor indirectly. Our employees must not accept any kind of bribe or give customers, agents, contractors, suppliers, employers or officials any special benefits. This also includes the non-acceptance of bribes offered through intermediaries or facilitation payments (smaller payments made to expedite a decision or activity).

UNDERSTANDING CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

Niebuhr Gears understands and considers cultural differences across countries. When we represent Niebuhr Gears abroad, we must consider the host country’s culture and adapt to it, wherever possible. Our employees are trained in how to behave in some of the foreign cultures which we meet in our Group companies.

LOCAL INVOLVEMENT

Wherever possible, Niebuhr Gears will contribute positively to the communities of which our companies form a part. We will support civil institutions and show commitment in the form of donations, involvement in networks or undertaking voluntary work to help local communities.
