The Maersk Whistleblower system is a confidential channel through which you can raise concerns about possible violations of laws or Group Rules in the following areas: money laundering, corruption, foreign trade controls, retaliation, insider trading, competition law, IT security, data privacy, threats to health, safety and environment, and sexual harassment or discrimination.
The system is only for reporting possible violations of laws or regulations, or issues that may expose the Group to serious legal risks. The system is not for questions regarding applications for employment, commercial inquires or disputes, ordinary HR complaints (e.g. salary, performance, vacation) or general questions. Such should rather be directed to the relevant Business Unit or Group Function.
Maersk encourages reporting concerns through the channel you are most comfortable with, such as your line manager, another member of management, or a relevant supporting function such as legal or HR.
The Maersk Whistleblower system is available as an alternative if you are uncomfortable reporting through other channels. We do not tolerate retaliation against reports made in good faith.
Once you submit a report via phone or web you receive a report key and password for follow-up on your submission.
Your report is initially reviewed by Group Legal and Group Internal Audit, who determine further action.
The system is administered by an independent company (NAVEX Global), and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It can accommodate calls in more than 75 languages, and you can submit a report anonymously depending on your location.
The system called EthicsPoint is hosted on NAVEX Global's secure servers and is not a part of Maersk's website or intranet. Any report you make will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible in conducting a thorough investigation. Persons will be notified of and/or involved in an investigation in a "need to know" basis.
