At KNDS we take pride in uniting the best of French and German land defense systems companies into a Group that is a force to be reckoned with now and in the decades to come. Our strength is rooted in centuries of excellence both at Nexter and KMW. We are determined to combine these into a joint future based on integrity, respect, quality and the courage to stand up for our values and beliefs.
While business performance is key to our success, the integrity of our business conduct is essential. The KNDS Ethics Charter provides guidance on the ethics and values shared by all members of the KNDS Group and helps in situations where decisions need to be taken or conflicts must be avoided. We will ensure that everyone within the KNDS Group will be given the means to fully understand the values we hold to be vital in our daily work.
KNDS makes the prevention of corruption a pillar of its activity. In the defense sector, it is both legal obligation and a real economic and strategic issue. KNDS conducts its business responsibly with integrity, transparency and rigor. The Executive Committee is convinced that the exemplarity in the application of these principles is essential for the sustainability and the success of the company. And no infringement can be tolerated.
The Group operates with continuous concern for respect for the environment. In accordance with sustainable development, the Group’s commitment also includes compliance with current environmental rules and regulations and business standards as well as improved environmental performance in areas such as waste management and prevention, soil and atmospheric pollution, and water and energy consumption.
