Internet-based whistleblowing system
The thyssenkrupp Whistleblowing System can be used to report possible violations of laws or guidelines within the Group, also anonymously if so desired.
Our electronic Whistleblowing System on the internet is available in 34 languages, and is open to all thyssenkrupp employees, but also to customers, suppliers, and other third parties. Access to the internet-based Whistleblowing System can be found using the link at the end of this section.
Reports received will be checked and handled by the Compliance Officers of thyssenkrupp AG (exception North America/Canada: NAVEX Global). Follow-up communication between the Compliance Officer/NAVEX Global and the whistleblower is possible, anonymously if desired, by means of setting up a secure mailbox.
thyssenkrupp safeguards the interests of the whistleblower not only through this secure Whistleblowing System, but also by providing assurances that all information received by Group Function Legal&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.
