Employees and third parties can report anonymously or by name to the system.
Terma’s multilingual whistleblower system, Ethics Line, offers a confidential and safe channel, where any employee or third party can report concerns, if they suspect that serious illegal misconduct or other potential wrongdoing is taking place.
All reported incidents will be handled in an anonymous and professional manner without fear of retaliation for reporting. All reports are subject to careful and confidential investigation. If a reporter expresses a genuine suspicion, he/she will not be at risk of losing their job or suffer any form of sanctions or personal disadvantages as a result. Terma does not tolerate retaliations or retributions against people who submit reports. This also includes if the reporter is mistaken, provided that he/she is acting in good faith.
Employees and third parties can report anonymously or by name to the system, and the report will automatically be transferred to Terma’s Ethics Committee who report to the Chairman of Terma’s Board with the report, findings, result of the investigation, and recommendations.
The Ethics Committee presents an annual report to the Board of Directors, which describes the amount of cases reported to the Ethics Line, the topics reported on, and other statistical information. This information is also disclosed in Terma’s annual CSR report.
Moreover, Terma employees can also make use of Terma’s internal case management system Tell us your concerns for concerns and reports that are not related to serious illegal misconduct, and which do not classify to be reported to Ethics Line. All reports are treated in a professional and confidential manner.
