At Padcon we are aware of our social role and our responsibility towards customers, business partners, shareholders and employees. This is why we have a set of clear principles in our code of conduct that define how we conduct our business and social activities. We expect the same of our partners. The ten principles of conduct contained in our Code of Conduct also forms the basis for establishing common standards in our collaboration with business partners and suppliers and therefore forms a part of all contractual relationships.
Global Tax Policy
To us, paying statutory taxes does not only constitute compliance with the law, but we regard our tax payments as a fair contribution towards funding and developing the community in all the countries and municipalities in which we are performing successfully as a company. This is why we consider maximum transparency of our tax-related activities and their disclosure as required by law to be part of our social responsibility.
