Ethics & compliance whistleblowing system
In accordance with the Sapin II law of 9 December 2016 on transparency, anti-corruption and modernisation in business and the “Duty of Care” law of 27 March 2017 relating to the vigilance required of parent companies and instructing companies, the EDF Group implemented an ethics & compliance whistleblowing system to effectively deal with any potential issues.
This system enables both internal employees and external employees (temporary staff, employees of a service provider, etc.) or casual employees (fixed-term contracts, apprentices, trainees, etc.) of any EDF Group entity as well as third parties to report an issue. It is also suitable for reports according to German Hinweisgeberschutzgesetz (HinSchG).
