Code of Conduct
OMV aims to require everyone who acts on our behalf to comply with our values and rules of behavior. These are clearly set out in the OMV Code of Conduct, which acknowledges OMV’s social and environmental responsibility within our sphere of influence.
UN Global Compact
By signing up to the UN Global Compact (UNGC), OMV has committed itself to implementing the ten UNGC principles on human rights, labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption. The OMV Code of Conduct sets forth clear rules of behavior in accordance with the UNGC. Its principles guide OMV’s behavior toward its internal and external stakeholders and serve as the basis for many other of our policies and guidelines, such as our Business Ethics Directive.
- Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
- Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
- Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
- Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor;
- Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labor; and
- Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
- Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
- Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
- Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
- Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery
