Compliance and policies
H+H's compliance program helps our employees to carry out their daily work in accordance with the rules and regulations of the countries we operate in and to act with integrity and high ethical standards. Compliance is a fundamental part of H+H's business strategy, that apart from avoiding significant legal and financial risks helps our employees to perform their duties in the right way promoting the legitimate interests of all our employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and society in general.
The code of conduct is the cornerstone of the compliance program and sets the tone with regard to our business integrity and ethical principles. On top of this, there are a number of building blocks in the form of specific policies dealing in more detail with some of the more important topics such as for instance health & safety, fair competition and anti-corruption. All H+H employees are requested to read the code of conduct and the specific policies that are relevant to their job functions.
Speak up! – H+H whistleblower system. H+H will not tolerate any breach of our code of conduct. It is therefore very important to H+H that you speak up immediately if you become aware of or suspect any violations of our code of conduct, so we can take action in good time. This includes, for example, breaches of health and safety procedures, bribery, corruption, fraud, or anti-competitive arrangements. H+H want to promote an open dialogue, and we therefore encourage you to report your concerns to the relevant H+H manager, Group Legal or your point of contact in H+H.
