Whistleblower System

Compliance with laws, regulations and internal guidelines is our top priority. Such compliance is essential in order to avoid harm to our company, our employees and our business partners. Misconduct must be promptly identified, processed and immediately corrected.

To ensure this, everyone needs to be vigilant and willing to report serious potential rule violations and legal violations where there is concrete evidence. This applies to suspicion of:

  • Corruption
  • Fraud of any kind, and misappropriation
  • Data privacy violations
  • Environmental and labor law violations
  • Violations of social standards and human rights

Tips that are received are treated as confidential and have no negative effect on the whistleblower. Please use the whistleblower system responsibly and only share information that you are certain is true to the best of your knowledge.

To allow your tip to be processed appropriately, it is important for it to be as specific as possible and for the description to be comprehensible to non-specialists as well.

It is helpful for your tip to answer the following five questions:

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • How?
  • Where?
