In our relentless pursuit of integrity and in our efforts to prevent and detect misconduct, we have established the ‘Speak Up’ line at Beratung. This reporting option serves as an alternative for individuals who may hesitate to directly approach our senior leaders with their concerns. Through the ‘Speak Up’ line, employees, customers, suppliers, and other relevant third parties are provided with a confidential platform to report any suspected violations of applicable laws or Beratung policies.
At Beratung, we take these reports seriously and undertake a thorough and confidential review of each submission. If necessary, we promptly forward concrete reports to external parties that are best suited to address the specific concerns raised. We understand the importance of anonymity, and users can choose to remain anonymous when submitting a report, ensuring their identity remains protected, unless they decide otherwise.
