Submitting a report

Bona fide reports help counteract violations at an early stage and limit the damage for our company, our employees, and our business partners. We have therefore set up several channels for contacting us – anonymously if required – to report infringements.

This system for reporting information is open to all thyssenkrupp employees as well as third parties such as customers, suppliers, and others.
thyssenkrupp and the corporate function compliance safeguard the interests of the whistleblower not only through this secure Whistleblowing System, but also by providing assurances that all information received by the Corporate Function Compliance at thyssenkrupp AG will be treated in confidence, and that all means at our disposal will be used to protect whistleblowers acting in good faith from any disadvantages as a result of their disclosures.

During its investigations, thyssenkrupp will also strive to protect the legitimate interests of other persons affected by a disclosure. Casting suspicion on another person can have serious consequences for that person. It is essential that the Whistleblowing System is used responsibly.

IIdeally: Your supervisor

An open communication culture is a key component of a functioning compliance program. Employees must be able to talk about mistakes openly and above all in good time. For this reason your primary point of contact should always be your supervisor. Non-employees should contact their business partner.

Alternatively: Your compliance officer or compliance manager

If you have the feeling – for whatever reason – that you cannot address your matter with your supervisory or business partner, contact our Compliance department:
