Acting with Responsibility - for the Company and Society

For us, entrepreneurial success is measured not only by economic indicators, but also by how sustainably and responsibly we act. We see ourselves as part of and a partner in the society in which we live. That is why we assume responsibility - towards our employees, society and the environment.


"As an innovative company, we need and promote strong personalities. Motivation, creativity and commitment are the hallmarks of our employees. To achieve this, everyone must be able to develop as freely as possible. I am glad and proud that Bertelsmann's corporate values embody exactly this."

Corporate Values and Guidelines

Bertelsmann companies like Arvato Systems are helping to meet the social challenges of the future with many initiatives and projects. This is an ambitious goal that we can only achieve together with our employees, our customers and the public. You can find out more about the values that guide us and our binding guidelines for legal compliance and ethical conduct in the Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA.


In our current Bertelsmann CR magazine entitled “Faces of Responsibility,” employees from several divisions discuss what motivates and drives them to assume responsibility in very different ways and put the Bertelsmann Essentials of creativity and entrepreneurship into action.

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 of 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.
