Our Code of Conduct describes our values and the demands we place on employees and business partners, within the areas of human rights, labour law, the environment and the fight against corruption. The content of the Code must be respected and followed by everybody within WPS and respected and followed by our business partners.
Within WPS, we must have the opportunity to influence our work situation. We must be innovative, flexible and constantly improving ourselves.
