At Faerch, we conduct our business with the highest ethical standards and in accordance with all appli-cable laws and regulations. Despite the fact that Faerch's compliance programme is developed to identify and prevent serious offences and criminal acts, even the most effective compliance procedures cannot fully protect against any conceivable situation. Consequently, we urge customers, business partners and employ-ees to report suspicions or knowledge of unethical conduct and criminal acts.
What should you report?
Our whistleblower scheme is only intended for reporting knowledge or suspicions of serious offences or criminal acts, such as corruption, bribery, forgery and irregularities within accounting, accounting controls and auditing. Furthermore, the scheme may be used to report knowledge or suspicions of environmental pollution, serious violations of occupational safety and other serious issues directed towards employees (e.g. violence or sexual abuse). The scheme cannot be used for reporting minor offences, such as cooperation problems or personal disagreements.
For more information on the delimitation of serious offences, reference is made to the: "Guidelines for Faerch's Whistleblower System".
How is the reporting carried out?
Faerch recommends that you report openly and state your name and contact details, as all enquiries are treated strictly confidential in collaboration with the law firm Plesner. However, it is also possible to file an anonymous report in the system. Reporting can be made through an external portal with the law firm Plesner.
