Ethics Helpline:

Building a culture of compliance also means building a culture of trust. We depend on our employees – and also on third parties – to raise any concerns they might have. We encourage you to report any questions, doubts or suspicions you have concerning behaviour that is not in line with our Code of Conduct or applicable laws and regulations. You can do this through our Ethics Helpline: an internet-based platform that allows you 24/7 anonymous or personal reporting.
