Documents accompanying the ZVEI-VDMA Code of Conduct

Here you will find accompanying documents to support you in implementing the contents described in the ZVEI-VDMA Code of Conduct (compliance and sustainability topics) in your company.

In addition to the Code of Conduct published by the ZVEI and VDMA in January, further accompanying tools (a guide and training documents) have been developed and are now available exclusively to ZVEI and VDMA member companies free of charge. They are intended to help implement the compliance and sustainability content of the Code of Conduct appropriately in the company and provide further information and assistance, particularly for the implementation of the sustainability topics.

The following documents are available and can be downloaded by individuals from ZVEI member companies via ZVEIconnects Topics in MS Teams:

  • An implementation guide (PDF)
  • As well as two training documents (PPT) - a short version and a long version, which you can use in your company to inform about the contents of the Code of Conduct or to train employees on the contents.

The latest, optimized version of the accompanying materials from 30.11.22 is now also available in English.

From now on, non-members can also purchase the accompanying documents to the Code of Conduct.
