Code of Conduct


SIG Group (SIG) strives to be a leader in packaging systems for liquid food and beverages. Ethics and Compliance are key factors to achieving our business goals and securing SIG’s long-term business success. Ethical and compliant behavior is the responsibility of every individual at SIG. This Code of Conduct has been approved by the Board of Directors and the Group Executive Board of SIG Group AG. It is globally valid and applies to all entities of SIG. It is binding for everyone at SIG.

All directors, officers and employees of SIG are expected to follow the law as well as the internal SIG policies and guidelines and adhere to high ethical standards. They should demonstrate social and environmental responsibility, professionalism, and use good business practices when performing their work. Trust and integrity are fundamental SIG values which must be respected. All directors, officers and employees of SIG shall use good judgement and common sense in all situations when the requirement of the law or of good business practices appears unclear. In such situations, directors should seek advice and direction from the chair and officers and employees from their supervisors.

All directors, officers and employees of SIG bear a joint responsibility for SIG’s reputation. Any misconduct and ethically questionable behavior, both internally and externally when dealing with business partners or the public, can have serious legal consequences and severely harm SIG and its reputation.

The principles contained within the Code of Conduct are based on:

  • Ethical and legal behavior
  • Fair, courteous and respectful treatment of fellow employees and others with whom we interact
  • Fair and appropriate consideration of the interests of other stakeholders (customers, business partners, government authorities and the public) as well as of the environment
  • Professionalism and good business practice

Any violation of this Code of Conduct is considered as misconduct and will be addressed appropriately.

In order to adhere to this Code of Conduct, please familiarize yourself with SIG’s internal policies and guidelines, which can be found on the intranet.


1. Compliance with the Law

SIG is committed to operating within the framework of the laws and regulations applicable to its business. Compliance with laws, regulations and internal guidelines is an absolute requirement for everyone at SIG.

All directors, officers, and employees of SIG are expected to understand and adhere to the laws, regulations, internal guidelines and binding standards affecting their work and must not encourage other employees or persons with whom SIG does business to breach any laws, regulations, applicable guidelines, and binding standards. SIG’s Management is expected to provide necessary instruction and advice.

On occasion, there may be disagreement as to whether or not SIG is in full compliance with the law. Litigation may occur. At all times, SIG will act responsibly and abide by the final decisions rendered by the courts.

Issues of compliance with requirements of governmental agencies may also arise.

Each director, officer and employee has the responsibility to inform SIG management or Legal & Compliance immediately if he or she believes that a potential compliance issue may exist.


  • Comply with all applicable laws, regulations and internal guidelines.
  • Inform SIG management or Legal & Compliance immediately in case of any potential compliance issues.

SIG is committed to providing an inclusive working environment for its directors, officers, and employees, free of bias. All directors, officers, and employees should feel safe, valued, treated fairly and empowered. SIG does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of its directors, officers, and employees or suppliers’ workers based on race, religion, national origin, political affiliation, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age or any other relevant category.

Discrimination is treating a person less favorably with respect to his or her employment because of a protected characteristic such as race, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status or other characteristic protected by either applicable legal requirements or specific corporate policy.

Harassment can be physical, verbal or written and can include unwelcome physical contact, sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, disparaging or derogatory jokes, comments, gestures, graphic statements, drawings, pictures, or engaging in offensive behavior.

All directors, officers, and employees shall act in accordance with the letter and spirit of these principles.


  • Create an atmosphere free of any discrimination or harassment.

  • Do not  engage in or tolerate any discriminating or harassing behavior.

  • Speak up when you believe that you or one of your colleagues is being harassed or discriminated against. You can be sure that SIG has a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination and harassment.

3. Environment, Health & Safety

In recognition of this principle, SIG has adopted a comprehensive, proactive environmental protection policy that reflects its belief in sustainable development combined with environmental sensitivity.

SIG will conduct its business in compliance with all applicable legislation providing for the protection of the environment, its directors, officers, and employees and the public. SIG will also continuously assess available technology to reduce environmental effects and implement improvements beyond compliance levels where economically viable.

SIG is committed to sourcing all raw materials as soon as practicable from sources certified as responsibly managed and strives to encourage our suppliers to increase their responsible sourcing activities. SIG equally commits to mitigate negative impacts in raw material sourcing by striving to ensure compliance with local and national laws and considering economic, environmental and social values – meaning not sourcing illegally, in violation of traditional and civil rights or threatening ecosystems and biodiversity.

The health and safety of its directors, officers, and employees is of utmost importance to SIG. SIG is committed to protecting the physical, mental and social health of its directors, officers, and employees and the surrounding community. To minimize the risk of workplace incidents, occupational illnesses and other health problems to the extent possible, SIG complies with all applicable statutory requirements and local safety rules and standards.

  • Understand the specific environmental requirements for your job function.
  • Ensure that environmental permits have been obtained and are up-to-date, and that records, documents, and labels are complete, accurate, and truthful.

In case of any questions contact your local Environmental, Health and Safety representative.


4. Human Rights Compliance

SIG will act in accordance with nationally and internationally recognized human rights, including fair working conditions and national and international labor and social standards. The respect of human rights is one of SIG’s core values.

SIG is highly committed to respect the human rights of its directors, officers, and employees, supply chain partners along our global value chain, the local communities in which it is operating and sourcing regions, distributors, customers, consumers, other business partners and external stakeholders.

SIG’s commitment to human rights encompasses all internationally recognized human rights, including those covered in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the core labor standards of the ILO (International Labor Organization), the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. If national law in our areas of operation extends or conflicts with internationally recognized human rights, we comply with national legislation and also strive to adhere to the principles of internationally recognized human rights to the greatest extent possible.

When conducting business, SIG will strive to prevent any adverse human rights impacts in connection with its business. As a part of its global value and supply chains, SIG expects that its business partners (customers, supplier, and other third parties) also respect human rights as well as international labor and social standards.

SIG does not tolerate, engage in or support child and forced labor, including prison labor, slavery and any other form of labor that poses a threat to both adults and children. SIG is committed to prevent, mitigate and address the risks of child and forced labor in its global value chains.


  • All directors, officers, and employees must respect internationally recognized human rights, including fair working conditions and national and international labor and social standards.
  • Only conduct business with business partners and other supply chain partners who respect nationally and internationally recognized human rights, including fair working conditions and national and international labor and social standards.


5. Trade Compliance

SIG is committed to compliance with all applicable trade laws and regulations, including those regarding embargoes, boycotts and other economic sanctions.

As an international company, SIG conducts business with suppliers and customers in variety of jurisdictions. Our business with international partners may be subject to restrictions under domestic and international trade control laws. Such restrictions can be based on the nature of the product, on the country of origin or destination, or the identity of the business partner.

SIG complies with all local import and export laws. SIG does not unlawfully conduct business with countries or business partners (suppliers, customers, or third parties) that are subject to embargoes or economic sanctions. SIG follows all regulatory requirements, including those regarding classification, documentation, shipping and record retention.


  • Ensure that business partners (customer, supplier, or third party) are not subject to sanctions
  • Ensure that any required permits / licenses for exporting or importing goods are obtained.
  • Inform the Head of Global Trade Compliance or Legal & Compliance in case of any suspicious business transaction
  • Note, that export control laws can be complex and are often subject to revisions. Consult the Head of Global Trade Compliance or Legal & Compliance if you have concerns about any SIG business in relation to a certain country or business partner.

For any questions regarding export control consult the Head of Global Trade Compliance or Legal & Compliance.


6. Anti-Corruption / Anti-Bribery

SIG has zero tolerance towards any acts of bribery and complies with all applicable anti-corruption / anti-bribery laws.

No director, officer, or employee and no third party or agent on SIG’s behalf, shall offer or make any payment (including kickbacks), or offer improper financial advantage to any party (including an official of a government or a government-controlled entity) for the purpose of obtaining business, authorisation or services or to avoid any unfavourable outcome, nor shall any director, officer, or employee extend unlawful benefits to any party (including customers) if such benefits are outside the usual local business practices or violate applicable laws.

SIG’s directors, officers, and employees shall not accept inappropriate or illicit benefits which might be offered to them by any party (including customers, suppliers or other persons).

Modest gifts and reasonable entertainment may be given and received, where legally permitted and in accordance with local business practices, to and from persons doing business or seeking to do business with SIG. No gift or entertainment should be of such nature or value as to constitute an improper personal enrichment of the recipient or to create an obligation on the part of the recipient, or as would reflect unfavorably on SIG or the donor or recipient if subjected to public scrutiny. Cash or equivalents are not to be given or accepted.

Directors, officers, and employees are encouraged to be thoughtful with respect to gifts given and accepted in the context of those relationships to ensure that they are appropriate, and would reasonably be perceived as appropriate, in the circumstances. In case of any doubts about whether offering or receiving of any benefits are acceptable or not, directors, officers, and employees should discuss the question with their supervisor and/or contact Legal & Compliance.

SIG will investigate any suspicion of corruption and bribery and will take disciplinary and other appropriate actions accordingly.


  • Act ethically and with integrity. Be thoughtful when it comes to giving and receiving gifts or other benefits.
  • Do not make any corrupt payment or bribe in any form, regardless of amount, directly or through an intermediary.
  • Do not accept or give money (or cash equivalents, e.g. vouchers) as a gift.

7. Antitrust and fair business practices

Everyone at SIG is expected to compete fairly and in line with the law as well as internal guidelines whenever they do business on behalf of SIG with customers and other business partners, including suppliers, as well as competitors.

Decisions regarding the purchase of goods and services should be made only on sound business principles and in accordance with the law and ethical business practices. No director, officer, or employee should take unfair advantage of any other person through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts or any other unfair business practice. No director, officer, or employee should disparage or misrepresent competitors of SIG, either generally or in respect of a particular matter or transaction and should never seek to induce another party to breach a contract in order to enter into a transaction with SIG.

SIG is committed to observe all applicable antitrust and competition laws. SIG will not be part of formal or informal agreements or understandings with competitors or other business partners that violate such laws.

Antitrust laws apply to all business arrangements, irrespective of their form (in writing or not), as well as to business conduct in general. Antitrust laws may vary in different jurisdictions, but generally forbid agreements or actions that unreasonably restrain free trade, are deceptive or misleading, or unreasonably reduce competition.

Antitrust laws apply if the negative impact on competition is effective in a country, even though the anti-competitive behavior is conducted outside that country.


  • Comply with the principles and rules of fair competition and do not violate applicable antitrust laws.
  • Brief internal Legal & Compliance sufficiently in advance of any anticipated contact with competitors
  • Follow the internal Guidelines For Information Sharing / Contacts With Competitors whenever meeting with competitors.

  • Only attend meetings and trade association meetings with competitors in line with internal policies.

In case of any questions regarding antitrust, contact Legal & Compliance.


8. Anti-Money Laundering

SIG complies with all applicable anti-money laundering laws and requirements, such as reporting obligations.

Money laundering is the process of changing money obtained from criminal acts into an apparent origination from legitimate activities.

SIG takes all reasonable measures to prevent and protect itself from being used by criminals to “clean” their proceeds stemming from criminal activities.

In order to prevent money laundering, SIG only conducts business with reputable business partners to ensure that any monies are from legitimate sources. This is achieved by checking the identity and the credentials of the (potential) business partners and other third parties prior to entering into a business relationship.

SIG also complies with all reporting obligations under national anti-money laundering laws and regulations.


  • Ensure that every new business partner (customer, supplier, or third party) is carefully reviewed and identified.
  • Report any suspicious business transaction.
  • Avoid the use of cash in business transactions.

In case of any questions regarding money laundering, contact Legal & Compliance.


9. Conflict of Interest

Business transactions must be conducted with the best interests of SIG in mind. Even the appearance of a conflict of interest should be avoided..

A conflict of interest arises where personal or financial interests of SIG’s directors, officers, or employees potentially interfere with SIG’s interests. Even the appearance of a conflict of interest can damage the reputation of the company.

Situations that may cause conflict, or give the appearance of conflict, between a responsibilities towards SIG and a personal interests should be avoided. Nevertheless, a conflict of interest, or the appearance thereof, may occasionally arise. Should such a situation occur, transparency and communication between SIG and its directors, officers, and employees is of utmost importance, and the parties concerned shall attempt to resolve the matter in good faith.

Therefore, all directors, officers, and employees are obliged to immediately disclose any potential or actual conflict of interest prior to taking any business decision which may be influenced by that conflict.


  • Place compliance with laws and ethical principles above private gain.
  • Immediately disclose any potential or actual conflict of interest to your supervisor or Legal & Compliance prior to taking any business decision.
  • Do not have a position with, or a financial interest in, another business that interferes or appears to interfere with your duties or responsibilities, unless approved in advance by Human Resources or Legal & Compliance

10. Insider Trading

Securities laws provide for criminal and civil liability for persons who engage in illegal insider trading or illegally transmit undisclosed material information relating to SIG or, in certain circumstances, the securities of entities with which SIG has entered into or may enter into a transaction.

SIG’s directors, officers, and employees must generally protect confidential information, except when disclosure is authorized or legally mandated. Confidential information includes, among other things, any non-public information concerning SIG, including its businesses, financial performance, results or prospects, financial and other information about potential acquisitions and any non-public information provided by a third party with the expectation that the information will be kept confidential and used solely for the business purpose for which it was conveyed.

Insider trading laws are intended to ensure that no one who is in possession of or has knowledge of undisclosed material information takes advantage of such information by trading in securities of SIG or such other entities.

Anyone with access to confidential information that could significantly influence the market price of SIG securities is considered an insider.

SIG has therefore adopted a formal policy regarding insider trading, a copy of which has been provided to and must be reviewed and complied with by all directors, officers, and employees. It provides for blocking periods applicable to all SIG directors, officers, and employees and requires pre-clearance of any intended trades in SIG securities by certain persons.


  • Never disclose confidential / insider information to a third party unless authorized or legally mandated.
  • Do not take advantage of non-public information concerning SIG when trading in Securities of SIG; do not recommend trading to other persons based on that information.
  • Observe all applicable trading restrictions, in particular blocking periods.
  • Protect SIG’s’ confidential or proprietary information by confidentiality agreements, appropriate storage and encryption.

In case of any questions regarding insider trading, contact Legal & Compliance.


11. Privacy & Data Protection

SIG is committed to ensuring the protection of personal data of everyone at SIG, its customers and suppliers. SIG will only collect and process personal data in line with the applicable legal frameworks.

Access to personal information about SIG’s directors, officers, and employees, suppliers and customers must remain restricted to people with a “need to know” within SIG and will be transmitted to others or third parties only for legitimate and necessary business purposes or to satisfy legitimate investigative or legal requirements.

Directors, officers, and employees who are responsible for maintaining personal information must ensure that the information is not disclosed inappropriately or misused.

SIG will comply with all legal requirements regarding retention and destruction of information.


  • Ensure that personal information is only collected and processed within the applicable legal framework.
  • Exercise appropriate care, custody and control over SIG’s files, documents and electronic data.
  • Keep confidential information stored properly when it is not being used.

However, directors, officers, and employees are permitted to also use SIG’s technology resources (e.g., computers, phones, etc.) for incidental personal purposes in line with SIG’s internal policies and guidelines. SIG’s directors, officers, and employees are not permitted to use SIG’s technology resources to engage in communication that contains, promotes or constitutes illegal or obscene information or activities, or other matters that could reasonably be expected to expose SIG to any criminal, civil or regulatory liability as well as matters that could negatively impact SIG’s reputation.

SIG’s directors, officers, and employees have the joint responsibility to protect SIG’s assets against theft, loss, abuse, unauthorized access and disposal. The same applies to assets of our customers, business partners or other third parties which are in our possession.

Investors, creditors and others have a legitimate interest in SIG’s financial information. The integrity of SIG’s financial reporting is based upon the validity, accuracy and completeness of the information upon which its accounts and records are based.

In particular, these individuals are required to be familiar with and to comply with all applicable disclosure requirements and are prohibited from knowingly misrepresenting, omitting, or causing others to misrepresent or omit, material facts about SIG to others, whether within or outside SIG. Directors, officers, and employees should have regard to the procedures for developing and making public disclosure and avoiding inadvertent or selective disclosure to analysts or others, all as set forth in SIG’s internal policy.
