The FLSmidth Whistleblower Hotline

At FLSmidth, we are not interested in business based on unethical or illegal activities, nor do we want an unsafe and discriminatory work environment for any employee or business partner. We will never compromise our integrity for the sake of business.

That’s why we established the Whistleblower Hotline, a safe and confidential channel where you should report possible serious violations of the law or FLSmidth policies. It is the most confidential and efficient way to report compliance violations and human rights grievances. You may also choose to report anonymously.

Use the Whistleblower Hotline if you know about a wrongdoing or if you feel under pressure to break our Code of Conduct. Relevant topics to report through the Whistleblower Hotline include serious, potentially illegal activities, such as bribery, fraud, conflicts of interest, harassment, discrimination or breaches of trade sanctions. If in doubt of which topics to report through the Whistleblower Hotline, please click on “FAQ” at the top.

Use the Human Rights Grievance Mechanism if you know about a human rights violation related to FLSmidth’s operations or business relationships, such as (but not limited to) unsafe working conditions, violations of labour rights or modern slavery. To report human rights violations, click on the “Human Rights Grievance Mechanism” button below. You can review our Human Rights Grievance Mechanism Procedure here.

In either case, the Whistleblower Hotline is a highly encrypted reporting service managed? by a third party. Full confidentiality and anonymity (when requested) is guaranteed. You can report 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and in more than 10 languages. The Hotline is open for reporting from employees as well as business partners, suppliers and other stakeholders.

DO NOT report personal, non-criminal or employee-related matters, such as salary-related issues or managerial issues on the Whistleblower Hotline. Please discuss such issues with your leader or People (HR) manager instead.
