Fazer makes whistleblowing available for its employees and external parties.
All Fazer employees are obligated to follow Fazer Group’s ethical principles, policies, rules and legislation in their daily work. Whistleblowing is a tool to report serious suspicions of misconduct in good faith.
The matters you should report may concern:
- bribes or improper gifts
- competition law infringements
- data protection law infringements
- other serious violations of legislation or Fazer Group’s ethical principles
Anyone can blow the whistle anonymously. The whistleblowing service provided by an external partner is encrypted and password-protected. No metadata is saved, and IP addresses cannot be tracked. Thus, identification of the anonymous whistle-blower is impossible. The anonymous whistle-blower gets an ID and a password before submitting their report. The whistle-blower can log in and read responses from the whistleblowing team and send messages back.
Whistleblowing reports are available to the Fazer whistleblowing team and other selected people, when necessary. Cases are handled taking the interests of all the persons involved into account. Personal data is deleted or anonymized when the case is closed or no longer needed.
