We reflect ourselves


Clariant’s Code of Ethics “Reflect Ourselves” is laying down our commitments and is intended to be a guide with ethical principles and examples to enable our personnel and associated parties to act with highest standards of integrity.

The Code is developed around eight guiding principles addressing topics of relevance to Clariant, its employees, stakeholders, and the communities we operate in. 

We recognize that ethics and integrity is not always black and white. In case of uncertainty we encourage our employees and associated parties to pause and reflect on whether their course of action is right and in the best interest of Clariant. This Code of Ethics is designed to serve as a compass for our employees and to help them in the decision-making process. We have developed the “Yes”-Check, a simple tool with easy questions to help you gain confidence on your course of action. It does not give you all the answers about what you should do, however it will help you to better understand and apply Clariant’s ethical principles and values.

» Companies have an ethical duty to care for their people, for society and for our planet. «

Conrad Keijzer, CEO of Clariant

Training and guidance

To familiarize our employees with the Code of Ethics, we have a comprehensive training curriculum to foster awareness, understanding and to create clarity on expectations. We encourage a mindset of curiosity and an open culture, where asking questions and giving feedback is valued.

Sharing concerns or observed malpractice

We understand that reporting actual or suspected malpractices takes courage and we truly value if you speak up. We encourage you to reach out to a person of trust at Clariant or to the Clariant Integrity Line, where you can ask questions or make an anonymous report. We also appreciate our external partners' cooperation by reporting any actual or alleged violation of Clariant’s commitments stated in our Code of Ethics and other related documents.

Rest assured that Clariant does not tolerate any form of retaliation against those who in good faith and rightfully speak up, and we have embedded this commitment in our Code of Ethics.

Code of Conduct for Suppliers

Our suppliers form an integral part of our network and we expect that they commit to ethical and sustainable business practices, with consideration for human rights, child protection, labor standards and anti-corruption regulations. In order to set a binding framework, we have issued a Code of Conduct for Suppliers in which we outline our strategy, scope and expectations, both in general terms and in detail. Our suppliers are expected to have read and agreed to this code of conduct in full – and to act accordingly at all times. The Code of Conduct for Suppliers can be downloaded from our corporate website and will be distributed to our suppliers.
