At ACC, we prioritize transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct in all aspects of our operations.
Our values and rules are outlined in our code of ethics and anticorruption code of conduct. They may be summarized by two of our core values that guide everything we do: Excellence: Our conduct must be exemplary in every way; and Greener & Cleaner.
We must understand and strictly comply with these standards. Our actions, and those of our suppliers, must demonstrate that the code of ethics and anticorruption code are being observed and put into practice. And we strive to do so.
But in case of doubts or if you suspect that a transaction might involve corruption, you’ve come to the right place. This page serves as a safe space for individuals to speak up and report any misconduct, wrongdoing, or ethical violations they may encounter within our organization.
What is Whistleblowing?
Whistleblowing is the act of bringing attention to improper, illegal, or unethical activities occurring within an organization. It involves reporting concerns about fraud, corruption, safety violations, harassment, discrimination, or any other misconduct that goes against our values and policies.
Why Whistleblowing Matters?
Whistleblowing plays a crucial role in maintaining integrity and upholding ethical standards within our organization. By speaking up, individuals contribute to a culture of accountability, helping to prevent harm, protect stakeholders' interests, and ensure a fair and ethical work environment for everyone involved.
What to Do if You Notice Something Wrong?
If you suspect or witness any behavior that violates our policies or ethical standards, we encourage you to report it through this whistleblowing page. Your confidentiality and protection are of utmost importance to us, and every report will be handled with the highest level of sensitivity and seriousness.
How to Report?
In case of doubts or if you suspect that a transaction might involve corrupt payments,
Immediately report this to:
- The Compliance Officer - firstname.lastname@example.org / Mail: Automotive Cells Company SE, Compliance Officer, Morning, 21 rue de Cléry 75003 Paris, France, or
- Your line manager.
Complaints will be reviewed by the Compliance Officer.
All complaints will be promptly and thoroughly investigated, and all information disclosed during the investigation will remain confidential, to the extent consistent with conducting the investigation and taking any appropriate remedial action and to the extent allowed under applicable law.
We are dedicated to fostering a culture where speaking up is encouraged and respected. Retaliation against individuals who report in good faith is strictly prohibited, and we ensure safeguards to protect whistleblowers.
