It is directly linked to uncompromising compliance with applicable laws, regulations and internal guidelines. Compliance is thus a central pillar of our management and corporate culture and, at the same time, an integral part of all business processes. Achieving outstanding performance and maintaining the highest level of ethical integrity is certainly not a contradiction. On the contrary: this mindset and approach have made Siemens strong. Our message is clear and straightforward: Only clean business is Siemens business. CSR <ul><li>With CSR </li></ul>
