This reporting channel is for abuses in companies. denunciation can be made, for example, by employees, suppliers, or subcontractors. Abuses can be, for example, bribes, tax evasion, human trafficking, discrimination, or workplace harassment.

How will the process go and who will be processing the denunciation?

The denunciation will be treated confidentially by Greenstep's Fraud Desk team, where the notifier's personal and any other identifying information will be removed from the denunciation. We will then evaluate any necessary follow-up studies and, if necessary, ask the notifier for further information. Depending on the subject of the denunciation, the issues raised in the denunciation may be clarified in cooperation with the representatives of the company. The relevance of the denunciation will not be clarified with the persons to whom the denunciation is addressed.
If, on the basis of our investigation, we find that there has been an abuse in the company, we will make a recommendation to the company to correct the matter and / or monitor it. Greenstep, as an external operator, cannot take responsibility for complying with the agreed measures. The measures to be agreed are compiled in an annual report which is available to the auditor.

Does the report go to authorities like the police?

If the report raises any suspicion of a criminal offense or other official matter, the information will be forwarded to the necessary authority. If the authority also needs the information of the notifier, we must provide it.
