Four megatrends – namely demographic change, decarbonisation, the digitalisation of construction processes, and deglobalisation, i.e. the “four Ds” – serve as the framework conditions defining the future of construction.

  • Demographic change
    Urbanisation: The urban population will double by 2050.
    Ageing society: The global average age will increase by over five years by 2050.
  • Decarbonisation
    Plus 1.5 degrees Celsius – maximum.
    Europe: First climate-neutral continent with EU Green Deal and EUR 600 bn investment.
  • Deglobalisation
    In search of resilience for production and supply chains.
    Regionalisation requires extensive adjustments.
  • Digitalisation
    Level-up with artificial intelligence.
    Digitalisation in construction: Here to stay.

Acting ethically, fairly and transparently is not a matter of obligation for PORR, but of conviction. The PORR Principles, clear rules and responsibilities as well as intensive training ensure that this conviction is also practised in everyday life.

Fairness and transparency build trust. Ethical, fair and transparent action is in line with the company’s principles and means stability in times of change. It also represents the essence of responsible corporate governance. Adherence to compliance rules is particularly important in the highly fragmented construction environment. Legally compliant and transparent behaviour is a top priority at PORR and is the only way to build trust with stakeholders and for responsible business practices to be put into practice.

Our values and our code of fair and ethical behaviour are set out in the form of Codes of Conduct for staff and for business partners. These contain binding economic, ethical-social and environmental minimum standards as well as the five PORR Principles: Reliability, Shoulder to Shoulder, Appreciation, Passion and Pioneering Spirit. They form the cornerstone of the corporate culture. This is why everyone who (wants to) work with PORR is called upon to behave in accordance with the Code of Conduct, to comply with the guidelines set out therein as well as with locally applicable laws, and to act responsibly.

The PORR Group has a compliance management system that covers all relevant aspects. This includes the topics of anti-corruption, antitrust and competition law, wage and social dumping and issuer compliance. The careful handling of personal data is also ensured by the compliance management system. This minimises risks, ensures the quality of products and services and, last but not least, safeguards PORR’s reputation. The result is reflected in increased trust on the part of customers, business partners and authorities.

PORR systematically fulfils its duty of care: The Group is certified in accordance with ISO 37001 (Anti-Corruption Management) and ISO 37301 (Compliance Management System). PORR’s quality management system is certified to ISO 9001. The implementation of the aforementioned guidelines is monitored by means of annual update checks.

Legally compliant and transparent behaviour is a top priority at PORR. Corruption has no place here. This is binding for all stakeholders. There are no exceptions, as unfair business practices can cause lasting damage to PORR’s reputation and bring it into disrepute.

Since 2017, PORR has had a system in place for reporting violations regulated by the Market Abuse Regulation (issuer compliance) as well as violations in connection with money laundering or terrorist financing. On the one hand, reports can be made via the email address Secondly, the whistleblowing platform allows anyone to communicate anonymously via the PORR website. It covers all national legal requirements and fulfils all the requirements of the Whistleblowing Directive.
