Corporate Responsibility

As a pioneer, we want to pave the way for a sustainable construction industry.. As an international company, PORR builds for generations and shapes living environments – with and for people. After all, the construction industry is a people business with many different ethnic groups and high consumption of energy and resources – and that’s why it requires a global and future-oriented approach. Responsible management and leadership are the foundation of PORR’s success and firmly anchored in its corporate strategy.

As a social player, PORR sees it as a mission to make a positive contribution and be part of the solution. The clear goal is to grow holistically, enabling it to operate in a future-oriented manner in line with ESG criteria.

The aim is to constantly expand PORR’s leading role in the area of sustainability. In cooperation with its stakeholders PORR is fearless and dedicated in tackling the complex challenges in order to drive its transformation step by step into the future. Numerous awards through ratings and top spots in rankings confirm our commitment and prove that PORR is on the right track, even if the objective has not yet been reached.


Lots of information, but zero tolerance. Law-abiding and transparent behaviour is the top priority at PORR. It has a zero-tolerance approach when it comes to corruption. This is binding for every stakeholder. There are no exceptions, as unfair business practices can cause lasting damage to PORR’s reputation and bring the company into disrepute. PORR has declared its unconditional commitment to fighting corruption. The Code of Conduct applies equally to employees and business partners throughout the entire value chain. We fulfil our duty of care systematically: The Group is certified to ISO 37001 (Anti-Corruption Management) as well as ISO 37301 (Compliance Management System). The compliance management systems cover all relevant aspects. This includes anti-corruption, antitrust and competition law, wage and social dumping and issuer compliance. The compliance management manual and compliance guidelines inform the Group’s workforce, including subsidiaries and associated companies in which PORR holds a majority stake, about the existing regulations regarding anti-corruption and all other compliance-relevant topics. Ongoing (annual) updates based on changes in legal regulations are a matter of course. Adherence to the requirements of the compliance management system is constantly monitored through risk analyses, checks and internal audits. Misconduct is punished and often provides a starting point for improvements to the regulations and compensatory measures.

In addition to the aforementioned guidelines and policies, PORR has taken further countermeasures in recent years to prevent dishonest business practices as well as unfair competition. In recent years, for example, the Group has successively and consistently withdrawn from politically unstable countries with unclear legal situations. Accordingly, PORR does not process any orders in countries with a low CPI value (Corruption Perceptions Index: scale from 0-100, 0 = very corrupt).

Violations can be reported through two channels. On the one hand, they can be disclosed using the email address Secondly, a whistleblowing platform enables anonymised two-way communication for everyone via the PORR homepage. It covers all national legal requirements and already meets almost all of the requirements of the EU Whistleblowing Directive.
