Corperate Values - KWD Spirit

The KWD Spirit, and the corporate values and standards of conduct defined in it, are guidelines for working methods, customer contacts and corporate management. They point the way for the actions and behaviour of all KWD employees worldwide and connect them with each other. They form the basis for decisions and consequently give common direction and orientation.

The KWD Spirit was not prescribed from above, but was developed with the involvement of employees at all levels and from all over the world in a long discussion process. As part of internal campaigns, the values are repeatedly discussed. Anyone who walks through the company building will find posters as high as a man, on which employees can comment on the values.

In the same way, the KWD Spirit has been modified several times in the past. However, its core was never changed.

Human rights and business ethics

The KWD Group is a globally active company. Social responsibility for people and the environment is a central aspect of our corporate identity. The KWD Group's commitment to sustainability and social responsibility is reflected in its products and services. An essential component of our guiding vision move2future is to become one of the leading suppliers of sustainable car bodies by 2030.

Our understanding and our human rights governance processes are based on the following international human rights reference instruments to which we are committed:

  • The International Bill of Human Rights, i.e. the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as the Civil and Social Covenants, which define civil, political and social rights to which all people are entitled for the purpose of their human dignity.
  • The core labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) with their four basic principles on freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, the elimination of forced and child labour and the prohibition of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
