Whistleblower System

Adhering to laws, rules and internal specifications is a top priority for the VON ARDENNE Group. The whistleblower system receives specific indications of potential misconduct. Our company's success is based on integrity and compliance. In order to maintain this standard, it is important to learn about potential misconduct and stop it. Misconduct must therefore be detected at an early stage, dealt with and stopped immediately.

The opportunity to submit information is available to all employees of the VON ARDENNE Group, but also our business partners, customers, suppliers and other third parties. Information can be submitted to the whistleblower system in English or German.

Protection for all parties involved

The whistleblower system guarantees the greatest possible protection for whistleblowers and the affected parties. We check each message and pursue it consistently. The principle of a fair process is a key pillar of the whistleblower system. In addition, we guarantee the greatest possible protection to whistleblowers, affected parties as well as the employees involved in clarifying the information. Pressure on whistleblowers and anyone who contributes to promoting the correct behavior at VON ARDENNE will not be tolerated. The presumption of innocence applies to affected parties until the violation is proven. Investigations are carried out while maintaining the required level of confidentiality. The information is processed as part of a fair, fast and protected process.

Please note that suspicions and accusations against a person can have serious consequences for them. The protection of whistleblowers is eliminated as soon as incorrect information is reported intentionally or through gross negligence.

Provide information - but correctly!

So that the Information Office can process and investigate your information appropriately, it is important that your information is as specific as possible. It is helpful if you ask these questions when submitting your information: 

Who? - Whom is this about? Who is affected?

What? - What happened? Description of the facts.

When? - When did the incident happen?

How? - How did it happen? How often does it happen?

Where? - Where did the incident occur?  

As a whistleblower, ensure that your descriptions can also be understood by people outside your specialization. It is helpful if you are available for additional questions.
