German Supply Chain Act (LkSG)

As Deutsche Bahn AG, we take responsibility for our work in Germany and all the other countries in which we operate. We therefore expect our suppliers to treat people and the environment with respect as the basis for a reliable partnership.

We take responsible and sustainable value creation seriously

With the introduction of the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz, “LkSG”) the legislator has created the framework conditions for responsible and sustainable value creation along the entire supply chain. We meet the requirements of the LkSG as Deutsche Bahn AG, DB Fernverkehr AG, DB Regio AG and DB Vertrieb GmbH.

To ensure compliance with the LkSG in our own business and in the supply chain, we have established a complaints procedure. Complaints and indications of risks related to human rights and the environment, as well as violations of obligations related to these can be reported there.

The complaints procedure can be accessed via Further information can also be found in our rules of procedure.
