We strive to maintain a transparent business climate and high business ethics and we value the safety and respect of everyone affected by our business. Through our whistleblower system, both employees and external parties can report suspected violations of law or business ethics.
Our trustworthiness and long-term success is built on our business principles, described in our Code of Conduct. You have an important role in raising your concern if you suspect irregularities or a wrongdoing that is not in line with our Code of Conduct. This gives us the possibility to prevent or correct any improper activity.
Anyone with a complaint or concern about any wrongdoing, should primarily contact the relevant manager or person in charge. If you feel you cannot be open with your identity, you are welcome to report your suspicions in a secure manner by using our whistleblowing service. You can report anonymously. There are no reprisals due to reporting a violation. The service is provided by the external party WhistleB. The service is available 24 hours a day and the report can be made on local language. You are also able to report orally by contacting the Compliance function via the switchboard.
Reports are handled confidentially by representatives at Investor’s Legal department. Access to messages received through the whistleblowing channel is restricted. Representatives from the Legal department decide if and how a whistleblowing report should be escalated. A summary of received whistleblowing reports is presented to the Board of Directors on an annual basis.
