The compliance process is supervised and steered by the VTU Head of Compliance, Konrad Schaefer.


To outline our approach, we have created a Code of Conduct that will guide VTU employees and describes our expectations regarding behavior and ethics.



We also want to ensure our principles along our value chain. Therefore, a Supplier Code of Conduct which we expect our suppliers to uphold when working with VTU.



At VTU, we embrace a culture of open communication, internally and externally. We want to keep this culture alive and strongly encourage all stakeholders to raise concerns openly at any time - preferably in a personal conversation or via e-mail.

If a report should be made anonymously, stakeholders (including external stakeholders such as suppliers) can use the VTU Compliance Line, operated by an external company.
