The corporate culture at SCHOTT is characterised by a keen sense of responsibility and mutual respect vis-a-vis our employees and business partners.

Compliance with laws, standards and internal specifications enjoys the highest priority.

It occurs repeatedly that companies violate applicable regulations and laws, as well as internal rules – sometimes with serious consequences for the companies concerned, and the employees involved.

The SCHOTT whistleblowing system – the Integrity Helpline – is available to SCHOTT employees, business partners and other third parties wishing to report possible violations of the law, the SCHOTT Code of Conduct and SCHOTT internal regulations.

Via WhistProtect, as part of our Integrity Helpline, you have the option to communicate with our lawyers of trust from the law firm Buchert Jacob Partner with a particularly high degree of protection. In a straightforward and untraceable format, there is the possibility, if desired, to communicate anonymously during the entire process – including vis-a-vis the ombudspersons.

The following reporting form will help you with your information.

After submitting your compliance tip, a protected mailbox will be set up for you, through which we can stay in dialogue with you (also anonymously). It would be tremendously helpful, if you activate this mailbox. We will let you know as soon as we receive your tip and have followed it up. 

Many thanks for your support!
