Whistleblower system


Sustainable commerce provides the basis for positive future prospects for the environment, society and the economy, as well as each individual employee or business partner of INDUS (the group parent company).

The cornerstones of the culture of INDUS are the distribution of the key requirements and their independent implementation and management in the subsidiary companies, as well as a shared understanding of values and the minimisation of risks for a sustainable corporate development.

The “SpeakUp” reporting system creates additional trust and security on the basis of a clearly defined structure for the reporting and the escalation process which is accessible to everyone, thereby ensuring the sustainable success of the group and averting damage.

In addition to the "SpeakUp" whistleblower system, public channels are also available. The German law, however, generally provides for the priority of an internal report.
