Compliance & Behaviour

Compliance Protects the Company and its Employees

Compliance means the adherence to legal provisions and corporate standards of conduct. Compliance regulations aim to protect employees and the company from harm. They form the foundation for our daily actions and apply to all employees including managers and directors.

Our employees are continually informed about our compliance regulations and receive personal advice upon request. Information from employees or external parties about potential misconduct, possible violations of law or offences such as corruption, are examined with great care and treated confidentially.

The compliance team of the DERTOUR Group can be reached via email here.

Principles of Conduct for Respectful Cooperation

Our principles of conduct are characterised by integrity and loyalty: We adhere to laws and statutes, engage in fair competition and are a reliable partner for our customers and business partners. As the tourism division of the REWE Group, we are guided by the Group’s standards of conduct. These are set out in the REWE Group code of conduct, and are equally binding for the DERTOUR Group. The code of conduct contains principles for our behaviour in business transactions and when dealing with one another. It provides us with orientation, and is at the same time an obligation for all who work on behalf of REWE Group.

You can find more information on compliance and the REWE Group code of conduct here.

Whistleblower System

The Hintbox makes it particularly easy to submit compliance notices – anonymously if desired. In addition, the new tool enables smooth, data protection-compliant communication between whistleblowers and the responsible individual compliance departments within REWE Group.

However, people who want to submit compliance notices without using the digital tool can still contact the “ombudsman” of REWE Group.

Ombudsman of REWE Group

REWE Group has appointed the Munich lawyer Andreas von Máriássy as an external ombudsman. Employees, customers and business partners of REWE Group as well as DERTOUR Group can contact him personally and anonymously if they submit compliance information, or seek a neutral contact who is bound to secrecy. The informant can use this service free of charge, and contact is possible in German and English.

Grievances about human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations

Our grievance procedure guarantees a trustworthy and at the same time transparent process in dealing with grievances about violations of human rights or environmental obligations. A grievance can be used to report suspicions of possible risks to human or environment rights or violations of due diligence obligation, such as forced labour, child labour, discrimination or the harmful contamination of soil, water and air, as well as detrimental noise and excessive water consumption which are linked to DERTOUR Group, its supply chains or its employees. Grievances can be submitted by employees as well as third parties via the grievance channel by REWE Group – anonymously, if requested.

Customer complaints, for example about the quality of DERTOUR Group products and services, are not considered grievances about human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations. For these complaints, please do not hesitate to contact the customer service departments and hotlines.

We expressly encourage employees and external parties to inform us of any suspicion on human rights or environmental risks or due diligence violations. Whistleblowers must not suffer any occupational disadvantages as a result of submitting grievances. The grievance procedure follows a defined process, which is also set out in the Rules and Procedure and that complies with the German Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains (LkSG) being applicable to the whole REWE Group (including us) due to its German parent company. Impartiality is guaranteed at all times; those involved in the procedure are not bound by instructions and are obliged to maintain confidentiality.
