The Group has established a digital channel for internal whistleblowing, which is a secure electronic system that allows the employees to remain anonymous when reporting a matter of concern.
Internal whistleblowing cases are initially processed by an independent third party and further follow-up is coordinated by the Group's whistleblowing committee.
How different cases are followed up will depend on the type of case, scope and degree of seriousness. Various matters will be followed up with current resources such as local management, the COO for the segment the CEO or in special cases by the Board. Notification matters are reported to Group management and the Board.
