Acting with Responsibility - for the Company and Society

UN Sustainable Development Goals
With the Agenda 2030 adopted in 2015, the international community, under the umbrella of the United Nations, has committed itself to 17 global goals for a better future. This includes economic, social, and ecological aspects. Agenda 2030 emphasizes the joint responsibility of all players: politics, business, science, civil society - and each individual. As a Bertelsmann company, Arvato Systems supports Agenda 2030, and with this, in mind, we have labeled various topics on our website that contribute to these so-called "Sustainable Development Goals" (SDGs). More information about the SDGs can be found on this page of the United Nations.
We are committed to complying with applicable laws, regulations, and corporate policies, promoting an ethical corporate culture, and building trusting relationships with our business partners - these guiding principles of entrepreneurial action are essential to us. Our parent company has established a compliance organization and the Integrity & Compliance program to ensure compliance.
