Whistleblowers Prevent White-Collar-Crime

Fraud, theft, embezzlement and corruption cause annual losses of several millions of euros in the Austrian financial system. In addition to the material damage, the reputation and public image of the companies concerned also suffer.

The reporting of white-collar crime and acts damaging to the company can be made by e-mail at nTyhq2Icp2qyLzIlDUAuoUcvqKWaYJScpaOipaDhLKD=  Disparagement, slander or reprisals against employees or customers are not tolerated in our Group! Deliberately false or deliberately defamatory comments or information do not fit in with our understanding of values.

Whistleblowers who report wrongdoing for ethical and moral reasons are not denunciators! With the help of this information, the constitutional values of our country can be preserved and damage can be kept away from the economy in Austria.

Protection of whistleblowers
