Supplier Code of Conduct
Here at Carrier and our parent DER Touristik Group, we aim to strengthen human and environmental rights in our own business activities and in our supply chains, with the aim of preventing violations, minimising them and taking remedial action. We ask all our service providers to comply with the requirements and obligations of our Supplier Code of Conduct.
Grievances about human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations
Our grievance procedure guarantees a trustworthy and at the same time transparent process in dealing with grievances about violations of human rights or environmental obligations. A grievance can be used to report suspicions of possible risks to human or environment rights or violations of due diligence obligation, such as forced labour, child labour, discrimination or the harmful contamination of soil, water and air, as well as detrimental noise and excessive water consumption which are linked to Carrier, its supply chains or its employees. Grievances can be submitted by employees as well as third parties via the digital complaints system by REWE Group – anonymously, if that is the individual’s preference.
Customer complaints, for example about the quality of Carrier products and services, are not considered grievances about human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations. For these complaints, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service departments.
We expressly encourage employees and external parties to inform us of any suspicion on human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations. Whistleblowers must not suffer any occupational disadvantages as a result of submitting grievances. The grievance procedure follows a defined process, which is also set out in the Rules of Procedure and that complies with the German Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains (LkSG) being applicable to the whole REWE Group (including us) due to its German parent company. Impartiality is guaranteed at all times; those involved in the procedure are not bound by instructions and are obliged to maintain confidentiality.
