In the event that the provision of information on a local level is not possible or practical, ERGO Group is offering a secure whistleblowing portal to report Compliance violations to ERGO Group Compliance. If required, whistleblowers can report violations anonymously via the BKMS systems. ERGO Group Compliance will review the information and involve local Compliance accordingly.
The whistleblowing portal is intended to identify and report material risks for the company. For this reason, only information concerning serious Compliance violations is accepted and processed, in particular from the fields of
- Corruption / bribery
- White-collar crime / fraud
- Anti-competitive practices
- Violations of data protection regulations
- Conflicts of interest
- Non-observance of sales compliance
- Breaches of the code of conduct
- Other circumstances that constitute a considerable reputational risk
Currently the systems offers English and German language for the user interface.
