Compliance


When many people share a common goal, one aspect is more important than all others: trust. The most important prerequisite for this is a binding sense of cooperation.

Compliance protects the company


REWE Group is a service-oriented provider and a reliable business partner. All employees are responsible for doing “the right thing” in every situation. Our Compliance Management System charts our course in this regard. The task of our compliance organisation is to provide information about the topic of compliance, to prevent risks and to react to violations throughout REWE Group. All internal employees receive trainings on a risk-based approach and, upon request, individualised advice.

The compliance activities of REWE Group are directed and coordinated by the Central Unit Governance & Compliance. Furthermore, the Decentralized Compliance Officers act as competent contact partners for their respective business units and country subsidiaries.

Our Code of Conduct regulates every form of cooperation


It is crucial for the success of our company that all stakeholders share the same values and base their actions on them in an identical fashion.

Therefore, the REWE Group Code of Conduct conveys seven fundamental values and explains what they mean for REWE Group. It also addresses the conduct of employees among each other and in the public sphere. It outlines guidelines for dealing with competitors, provides advice on the protection of data and company property and explains how conflicts of interest can arise (and how to deal with them). It illustrates how destructive corruption is and shows how to fight it. It also emphasises the social and societal responsibility of each individual – including in the workplace.

Compliance tips


Our compliance tip process guarantees a trustworthy and simultaneously transparent approach to dealing with compliance tips. In principle, tips refer to the actions of REWE Group and its employees. A tip becomes a “compliance tip” if there are reasonable grounds to suspect a breach of regulations or a criminal offence. Corruption offences in particular cause considerable damage – not just to REWE Group but also to society. Compliance tips can be submitted by internal employees as well as by external stakeholders.

We would like to expressly encourage each individual to inform us of any suspected violations of the law or instances of misconduct.
