FUCHS Compliance Communication – the whistleblowing system for compliance violations

With the FUCHS Compliance Communication system, we would like to simplify the reporting of compliance violations while also protecting your anonymity, should you so wish. Our goal is to discover violations of laws as well as misconduct as early as possible in order to prevent possible harm to the FUCHS group and the persons affected.

Legal violations and misconduct can impede our business and financial success, endanger jobs and do significant damage to the image of our company. We want to prevent this in order to protect the company and its employees – including those within the supply chain. To achieve this goal, it is important for FUCHS to learn about verifiable or suspected compliance violations.

You can therefore report all violations that have been committed:

  • by employees of the FUCHS group in connection with their work;
  • by suppliers of the FUCHS group relating to their human rights and environmental obligations.

If you have concrete knowledge that certain actions or situations at FUCHS or by suppliers of FUCHS may be in violation of the Code of Conduct, other internal regulations or even laws, do not hesitate to report these violations. To this end, FUCHS Compliance Communication offers you another channel by which to submit your report. Because we wish to effectively protect you as a whistleblower, you may send your reports anonymously if you wish. We do not tolerate discrimination of, or pressure being exerted on, whistleblowers. It is, however, also important that: The person in question is presumed innocent as long as they have not been found guilty of an offence.

FUCHS Compliance Communication is a state-of-the-art whistleblowing and communication system. By creating and using a secured postbox, you can continue to cooperate in the clarification of incidents after submitting your report. This also applies even if you wish to remain anonymous.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and your conscientiousness!
