Vitesco Technologies rejects any form of unethical or illegal behavior. To protect itself and its employees from damages and prosecution, Vitesco Technologies has adopted a zero-tolerance policy: Any form of unethical or illegal behavior will not be tolerated.
The early detection and reporting of a legal violation allow Vitesco Technologies to react swiftly and take actions to prevent damage to the company and the general public. Your support in identifying and resolving violations is highly important to Vitesco Technologies. Via the reporting system of the Vitesco Technologies Integrity Line, you may quickly and easily report any suspicions about given or suspected misconduct that might affect you, the Vitesco Technologies Group or the wellbeing of other people.
In the past, we received various anonymous contacts regarding alleged corruption, fraud and other criminal acts within the corporation. The Integrity Line offers an opportunity to voluntarily provide information about fraudulent actions and breaches of ethics directly and anonymously to the company.
All employees who are aware of any illegal or dubious activities concerning Vitesco Technologies should use the Integrity Line if they cannot discuss the issue with their supervisors.
In addition, all stakeholders possessing such information regarding Vitesco Technologies and its employees are strongly recommended to use the Integrity Line. Vitesco Technologies appreciates your support!
The Integrity Line should be used to inform Vitesco Technologies about any criminal or unethical activities, e.g. about the following:
All contacts will be directed via an external service provider to Internal Audit and Compliance Department and will be promptly dealt with. All information, as is currently the case, will be taken seriously and treated confidentially in accordance with the law.
It is your choice to report anonymously or to also submit your contact details. We, however, encourage you to provide your name and your contact details. All information is handled strictly confidential. Any form of retaliation against the individuals who raise concerns or inform the appropriate internal or external offices about potential violations is prohibited.
Please note that false statements or untrue accusations will not be tolerated. Any information that is passed on should be based on good faith.
