The ABB Business Ethics Helpline was introduced in 2006 for the purposes of providing all ABB employees and stakeholders, worldwide, with a means to report suspected violations of the ABB Code of Conduct, Supplier Code of Conduct, or applicable laws.
All ABB Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct violations shall be reported, including but not limited to:
When making a report, reporters are encouraged to disclose their identity. Reports can be made anonymously; however, ABB strongly encourages reporters to provide their contact details or email address so that contact can be maintained throughout the investigation.
ABB will take all reasonable steps to ensure confidentiality throughout the reporting process, so people filing reports should not fear that their identity or issue will be improperly disclosed or abused. Complaints made in good faith will not expose any reporter to sanctions.
When making your report, please be aware that the information you provide or the allegations that you make could result in decisions that affect employees of ABB and other third parties involved in the matter. We therefore kindly ask you to provide us only with information that is accurate to the best of your knowledge.
We also ask that you provide all relevant facts, details and explanations in relation to your report that could assist ABB in its investigation of the matter. Reports which cannot be substantiated will not justify further investigation or review.
ABB employees should report their concerns initially to their direct management, local Legal & Integrity officer, human resources, or alternatively, through their country specific Business Ethics Helpline number. More details on the Reporting Channels are available on the ABB group intranet website (available only internally) or on your local intranet site.
All stakeholders that have a business relationship with ABB can make a report by:
Stakeholders from Denmark are required to identify themselves in connection with a report and must identify the type of business relationship they have with ABB.
The types of issues that can be reported include:
NOTE: Minor offences are not to be reported through the Denmark Stakeholder helpline or Web submission portal.
If you are reporting from Sweden, you can choose to submit your report via the Business Ethics Helpline and Web Submission portal either to the dedicated global investigations team within the ABB Group Legal & Integrity team, Integrity Investigations & Monitoring (option to report globally), or to submit your report to a local representative of your chosen Swedish ABB partner company for handling (option to report locally).
When making your report to ABB we ask that you provide as much detailed information including dates, persons involved, countries, incident etc. so that the ABB integrity function can investigate your report fairly and thoroughly. By providing your personal contact information an ABB investigator can communicate with you directly if we require further information and assistance from you.
