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.

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.

Ombudsman

REWE Group has also appointed the lawyer Andreas von Máriássy as an external ombudsman. Internal employees and external stakeholders (e.g. customers or business partners) may contact him if they wish to submit compliance tips anonymously, or if they are looking for a neutral point of contact who is bound to secrecy in matters of compliance. Contact is possible in German and English.
