We are continuously working to expand and improve our supervisory and reporting structures in order to further strengthen our stakeholders' trust in our company. We are therefore working to prevent potential violations of the law from occurring in the first place and to put a stop to them at an early stage by means of precise specifications and guidelines. In this way we protect not only our company but also our employees from penalties and reputational damage.

Code of Conduct
In 2020, we defined and implemented a Code of Conduct in our company that sets out the most important behavioral and compliance rules and procedures for our employees. These include the protection of intellectual property rights, the prohibition of insider trading, and measures to prevent corruption and the acceptance of benefits.
We have published a summary of our numerous internal guidelines on the prevention of corruption and bribery. In this way, we have created a clear guideline for our employees that simplifies implementation and compliance with the various requirements. Our Compliance Officer Anna Rautenberg monitors compliance in close dialog with employees and departmental compliance officers. In addition, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board receive a detailed report every six months in order to gain a picture of the current situation and possible potential for improvement.
2022 CHEPLAPHARM has implemented a multilingual, electronically protected whistleblower system. This allows our employees and all persons working in our value chain to report misconduct online anonymously, as well as in German or English. We regularly draw our employees' attention to the possibility of using our whistleblower system, for example as part of our regular compliance training.
CHEPLAPHARM has a dualistic system consisting of an executive board and a supervisory board to separate business and corporate management. The supervisory board monitors the work of the management board, the proper accounting and the annual financial statements. It consists of four members, two of whom are women.
As additional motivation to act more sustainably, 9% of the Executive Board's short-term compensation components in fiscal 2022 were linked to the achievement of specific sustainability targets.
IT security and data protection play a major role in the digital age, and our internal structures reflect this. Our employees receive regular training on information security, behavior in the event of cyber attacks, and data protection. In this way, we want to ensure that our employees are aware of their responsibility when dealing with confidential data and thus avoid incidents.
