Compliance

At GLS Spain, we place great importance on compliance with the law and the ethical standards that are part of our values. This is also our responsibility as a subsidiary of a group in which we have as a motto: Zero Tolerance for Corruption.

In this way, we can guarantee reliable partnerships and become part of a fairer and more sustainable business fabric.

In order to systematically identify and mitigate compliance risks, GLS has implemented a series of mandatory measures throughout the Group:

  • Competition Law
  • Modern Slavery Act
  • Prevención de Blanqueo de Capitales
  • Anti-corruption
  • Financial Penalties
  • Crime Prevention Model

Code of Conduct

To strengthen the relationship and trust of customers, staff, suppliers, business partners and society as a whole, the GLS Group has implemented the Code of Conduct which sets out both the company’s core values and standards of behaviour that are binding for all staff.

The GLS Code of Conduct forms the basis for all business decisions and governs responsible interaction with all stakeholders.

Code of Conduct for Suppliers and Business Partners

For GLS, established standards of conduct are important at all levels. We expect our suppliers and business partners to comply with this Code, implement it with appropriate measures and integrate it into their business processes.

Complaints channel

The GLS Group has established a whistleblower channel to allow staff, business partners and third parties to confidentially report criminal or similar acts. The lawyer Dr Rainer Buchert is available as a contact person for all of them. Dr Buchert will not deal with complaints that are not of a serious, criminal or similar nature. In case of doubt, he will advise on how to proceed. You can contact through this form.

All complaints will be treated confidentially. Dr. Buchert will adhere to statutory confidentiality obligations and will not disclose the identity of individuals without explicit consent. He has the right to refuse to give evidence (including the identity of the complainants) at the request of a court of law. Complaints to Dr. Buchert will only be forwarded to the GLS Group with the consent of the complainant.

Of course, concerns relating to the above matters may also be reported to the employee’s line manager or Compliance Manager.
