To simplify for the individual who wants to inform about irregularities or misconduct that violates applicable law, Gränges’ Code of Conduct or other Gränges’ policies, we have a Whistleblower function.
Through the whistleblower function, employees and business partners can provide information and be guaranteed full anonymity. All reports will be received and investigated by an external party. In practice, the Whistleblower function can be used to report all types of irregularities.
The Swedish Data Protection Authority and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulate which people and what type of information can be stored and processed via a system such as this. In line with the recommendation from the Data Protection Authority, Gränges is only allowed to store and process serious irregularities that concern people in senior management positions.
For information about how Gränges’ whistleblower function works, please refer to the document:
