Ask questions, seek help or raise a concern
At Danone ethical business conduct is the responsibility of everyone, including those working on behalf of Danone, as we work to bring health through food to as many people as possible.
Danone encourages anyone concerned about potential misconduct, non-compliance with our policies, applicable codes of practice or potential violations of laws and regulations to seek help; ask for advice or raise a concern. If it doesn’t seem right, tell someone.
You should first tell your supervisor or manager, HR or your local compliance or legal representative. However, if you are unable to do so or feel it is inappropriate approaching somebody internally you may use the Danone Ethics Line. The internet reporting site is managed independently of Danone, with worldwide support and allows you to raise a concern anonymously, if you prefer, and according to your country’s local laws.
Note: this system is not to be used for routine HR issues such as payroll queries, performance related issues, general grievances etc. These should be addressed to and handled by your local management team and will not be managed through Danone Ethics Line.
Any question or concern that you raise, no matter how, will be treated as confidentially as possible as Danone follows-up and investigates fairly and impartially and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and governmental reporting obligations.
