At Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH openness, appreciation, commitment, motivation and efficiency form the core of all commercial activities. We foster knowledge of the applicable laws, guidelines and internal instructions, which are relevant to FBB, amongst others through training, flyers and articles in the employee newspaper. Reinforcing a culture of compliance based on binding values and ethical standards, within our regulatory framework, represents a crucial component of our corporate culture. A compliance management system and reference system have been established to provide support. Employees of the airport company and external companies, such as contractors, service providers and business partners, can turn to the reference system, anonymously if desired, with any information and suspicions, e.g. concerning corruption, deception, white-collar crime or breach of trust. This information gives us the chance to uncover and eliminate problems to prevent serious damage to FBB and its employees.
FBB’s Compliance Office is the central contact point for compliance issues within the company, and its duties are separate from all other functions. It is headed by Compliance Officer Mrs. Elke Schaefer. The Compliance Office is available as a central contact point and advisor. All information received by the Compliance Office is of course treated confidentially.
In addition to the reference system and the Compliance Office, FBB’s ombudsman, Dr. Rainer Frank, is available as a contact person for compliance enquiries.
The Compliance Committee acts in addition to FBB’s Compliance Organisation in an advisory and supportive capacity, e.g. during the implementation of compliance tools. It initiates recommendations for improvements, provides advice about investigations and discusses compliance related matters.
