SpeakUp

The whistleblowing system aims to create a comfortable work environment, by managing complaints or disclosing events that may result in financial and non-financial losses, including a deterioration of the Company’s image. Every employee of the Company and external parties can play a role and help prevent the occurrence of violations of the applicable laws and regulations and Indocement Code of Conduct. The Company through HeidelbergCement Group has published an update to these guidelines by creating a new system called “SpeakUp”, which can now be accessed through www.speakupfeedback.eu/web/heidelbergcement and/or a special telephone line for each country.

Through SpeakUp, the confidentiality of the reporting or whistleblower data is guaranteed and can be protected in line with the Company’s commitment to upholding ethics, morals, and law for any information on violations that occur. The Whistleblowing System is designed to ensure that any violations found in the Company’s environment, both external and internal, can be immediately followed up without disturbing the ongoing business stability, without affecting the Company’s image and reputation, while creating a climate of transparency of all available resources.
