Whistleblowing system

      A web-based whistleblower system was launched in January 2012. Reports of Compliance violations should be made openly for the most part, i.e., divulging the whistleblower’s name. This web-based system, however, offers the additional possibility of reporting misconduct anony­mously and of communicating with whistleblowers in ways that allow them to remain completely anonymous. It is thus designed to systematically utilize in­ter­nal information for the purpose of identi­­fy­ing Compli­ance risks in the Group early on and effec­tively.
