Our Commitment

Our actions with respect to colleagues, business partners, shareholders and the public are characterized by integrity and responsibility. Primetals Technologies does not tolerate any violations of applicable laws or the Primetals Technologies Business Conduct Guidelines.

With the communication channel "Speak Up", Primetals Technologies offers the opportunity to report specific information concerning suspected compliance violations. Technical administration of Speak Up is maintained by the independent company Navex Global, and the application is stored on secured servers in UK. The examination of the content is performed exclusively by Primetals Technologies.

  • The information you provide will be handled in strict confidentiality and only shared with the parties responsible for further examination of the report. More information on the handling of the personal data that you share via Speak Up can be found (Link DP declaration). Primetals Technologies encourages you to disclose your identity.
  • The information you report can lead to the initiation of internal investigations as well as investigations by public authorities and other consequences. For this reason, only share information that is true to the best of your knowledge. There will be significant consequences for the knowing submission of false or misleading information. The knowing dissemination of false information is a criminal offence in many countries. Reports made in good faith and to your best knowledge will not result in any negative action by the company.
  • Please note: Speak Up is not an emergency service! Please do not use this service to report an immediate threat to life, health or property since this communication channel is not designed to receive such information. If necessary, inform the competent authorities or the competent internal security department.
  • Do not provide us with any information if doing so is a criminal offence according to the laws of your country. This applies in particular in connection with the sharing of state secrets.
