Compliance Help Desk
Our Whistleblower Scheme
Our Compliance Management System aims to establish an active value system and reinforce the staff's individual responsibility, going much further than straightforward compliance with legislation and regulations. This includes acting jointly to prevent and combat conduct that financially harms or discredits our company, staff or partners.
Through the company-wide whistleblower scheme, we are providing all staff and external individuals with a mechanism to ensure that conduct within the company complies with the law and that breaches are detected.
If you discover wrongdoing, please do not be afraid to report it. Your superior as well as the personnel department, your compliance officer and any member of the Compliance Committee are available to help you with this.
If you do not wish to speak to the people in these positions, or you wish your information to remain anonymous, you can contact the help desk staff listed below, who will naturally treat all information as confidential in accordance with the law.
Whistleblowers who report wrongdoings for ethical or moral reasons are not informers. They are giving significant assistance in safeguarding both our constitutional values and the values by which we work together in the company. Please bear in mind, however, that the statements you make about others could lead to decisions that will have consequences for these people. We ask that you only make information available to us which, to the best of your knowledge, is accurate.
With your help, therefore, criminal activities can be exposed at an early stage, offenders can be investigated and further harm can be avoided in the future.
You can contact any of the people listed. At the very least English will be spoken along with the language of the country. Please note the normal office hours for the country in each case, as the contact persons are normally only available at those times.
Please note that, for the time being, our electronical whistleblower scheme is not yet in operation for information related to France, Norway and Sweden because the necessary authorizations from the authorities concerned in these countries are not yet fully in place. Once they are in place, it will be possible to use the whistleblower system in these countries too. Information passed on in a manner which disregards these rules will not be processed through the whistleblower scheme; any information submitted will be deleted or destroyed.
