The combination of synthesis and formulation represents an attractive market opportunity for the long-term viability of the company and jobs.
In 2016, Siegfried introduced new guidelines for all sites concerning “Leadership and Values”. The corporate values of compliance, respect, loyalty, credibility and sustainability represent the core of the leadership model. By creating a shared basis for action and bringing life to corporate culture beyond national borders, these five core values form the basis that connects Siegfried with all of its stakeholders. They provide clarity and commitment to our dealings with each other and form a basis for understanding cultural differences and our entrepreneurial success. These five core values help to translate our strategy and our brand into concrete behavior and actions. The aim of these values is to serve as an internal compass and to embrace corporate sustainability.
Reliable parameters and social acceptance of its corporate targets provide Siegfried with a stable environment for success also in its long-term activities.
Remaining in dialog with society, politics and governments is a part of sustainable corporate management and allows us to find viable solutions. This dialog is subject to Siegfried’s entrepreneurial principles and based on the values of honesty and objectivity.
Exchange with political bodies and political decision makers serves to maintain good parameters for the industry in general and, in particular, for the chemical-pharmaceutical industry.

Free market access on a global basis is of great significance for Siegfried.
