Strong together: The BayWa self-concept

“Only those who behave in an ethical, environmentally conscious, and legally correct manner will thrive. That is our joint responsibility as a company.”

We unite worlds - and have been doing so successfully for over 100 years. Our brand essence is centered around unity, and shapes our actions. To us, this means that we strive to continuously act in a reliable and trustworthy manner - taking responsibility for the people who work for and with BayWa. Sustainable transformation is the greatest challenge of our time. That is why we define sustainability holistically: we act in a climateconscious manner, are committed to human and environmental rights, and stand for responsible corporate governance.

Integrity is a decisive factor of our approach. Together with sustainability, it forms the foundation of our strategy. We believe that only those who behave in an ethical, environmentally conscious, and legally correct manner will remain successful in the long term. The BayWa Board of Management has therefore adopted a Code of Conduct containing principles of Conduct that reflect BayWa's value system. They provide employees with guidance on how to deal fairly and responsibly with colleagues, customers, society and the environment. And ultimately, to shape the way we work together in a way that creates value.

The cornerstones of our Code of Conduct:

  • We serve basic human needs, providing leading solutions for food, energy and building. For our customers we are the close partner. We connect products, advice and services, enabling our customers to achieve their best.
  • We are the close companion. As that close companion, BayWa helps create the future to the advantage of its business partners and support them in an internationally connected environment with the best solutions for agriculture, energy and building materials.
  • We stand for trust: customer-focused expertise paired with a partnership-based attitude. We stand for solidity: financial strength and down-to-earth mentality as the basis for working sustainably. We stand for innovation: development of new products and flexible solutions to continue growing profitably for the future.
  • We feel bound to manage the company sustainably and responsibly and act as entrepreneurs within the Group. Ethically and legally impeccable behaviour forms the basis of our company culture.
  • We take responsibility for our community and environment, especially due to our roots in the cooperative movement.
  • We lead with enthusiasm and appreciation, in a goal- oriented way. We act as reliable role models, encourage independent behaviour and delegate responsibility.

This self-concept is reflected in our Code of Conduct, that forms our value system and is applicable throughout the Group as a binding Code.

In case of possible breaches of regulations, there is the opportunity to make reports through an anonymous whistleblower-system. All such reports are treated confidentially. The system is available under this link:
