RACCORTUBI GROUP SUPPORTING AN ETHICAL AND SAFE WORKING ENVIRONMENT FOR EVERYONE.

 

Information on adaptation to new legislative indications regarding illicit behavior in the workplace (so-called whistleblowing).

 

In compliance with internal and EU regulations, the Company has equipped itself with an internal reporting system (aka whistleblowing).

Through these channels anyone can, even in a totally anonymous form, report to the Company illicit behavior carried out by Company personnel or in any case during business activities.

The information received through this channel will be treated with attention, care and seriousness, as well as in compliance with sector regulations and best practices.

It is underlined that the channels guarantee, where the whistleblower so desires, full anonymity and, therefore, allow protection from any risk of retaliation.

Below there’s an analytical indication of the characteristics of the system, its method of operation, its purposes and, above all, the channels provided.

The Company (in compliance with Legislative Decree no. 24 of 2023, given the Anac guidelines on the matter and having consulted the trade union representatives pursuant to art. 4 of Legislative Decree no. 24 of 2023), has activated its own reporting channels which guarantee , including through the use of encryption tools, the confidentiality of the identity of the reporting person, the person involved and the person mentioned in the report, as well as the content of the report and the related documentation.

The management of the reporting channel has been entrusted to the president of the SB (supervisory body).
