The Hellma Whistleblower System

Compliance with legal requirements, internal rules and the principles of conduct is a top priority at Hellma.

Fundamental principles and measures of acting with integrity are laid down in our Code of Conduct. These are an essential part of our corporate philosophy and serve as an important orientation and protection for Hellma, our employees and our business partners.

"For us, effective compliance management means adhering to all legal and self-defined obligations. It guides our daily decisions. Trust, honesty, fairness and transparency form the key principles of our Code of Conduct and are the cornerstones of our sustainable success."

Hellma GmbH & Co.KG

The Hellma whistleblower system handles reports of rule violations, because we can only prevent damage to our company, our stakeholders and the environment if rules and standards are adhered to. To fulfill this responsibility, it is important that Hellma is informed immediately of compliance-relevant misconduct. For this purpose, we have created various communication channels through which information can be reported independently and confidentially.

What is a report?

Reports are the communication of information on violations of laws or applicable rules that may result in (reputational) damage, fines or penalties. Impacts are to be counteracted by giving the possibility of submitting information on actual, potential or attempted violations.

These might include

→ actual, i.e. already committed and occurred violations

→ potential, probable committed violations

→ attempts to conceal violations

The following reporting channels are available

The contact data published below is considered an "internal reporting channel" and is processed by an independent body. This way, the confidentiality of your request can be maintained.
