Harmful behaviour at the workplace
affects us all!

Gerresheimer strives for excellence and a high level of quality in order to strengthen the trust of employees, shareholders and business partners in the Gerresheimer group. Integrity and legally compliant behaviour are therefore of the utmost priority at Gerresheimer.

To protect the integrity of Gerresheimer and to avert potential damage to the company, Gerresheimer is interested in learning about compliance violations. If possible, however, you should take your concerns first to people in your immediate working environment, such as your supervisor, the company management, the human resources department or the works council.

In addition, Gerresheimer offers its employees as well as its customers, suppliers and other business partners a secure whistleblowing portal for submitting reports of possible serious compliance violations. This portal allows reports to be submitted at any time and from anywhere in the world, either by name or anonymously, provided that anonymous reporting is permitted according to the respective national laws. Submitted reports will be forwarded to the Compliance department of Gerresheimer AG, which is responsible for the further confidential processing of the report.

The whistleblowing portal serves to identify and avoid significant risks for Gerresheimer. For this reason, only information that refers to serious compliance violations (such as acts of corruption, violations of competition laws, fraud and inaccurate accounting) shall be accepted and processed. If you have information concerning general topics of employment law, we ask that you take your concerns in confidence to the competent contact persons in your company, such as your supervisor, the human resources department or the values representative.

Casting suspicion on another person can lead to serious consequences for that person. For that reason, the whistleblowing portal is to be used responsibly. A whistleblower is encouraged to only provide information that the whistleblower is convinced is correct. This whistleblowing portal may not be used to knowingly submit false or slanderous statements or information.

  • Why should I submit a report?

    Compliance with legal and internal company rules is essential for the success of Gerresheimer. Every report of violations helps uncover risks for Gerresheimer and its image at an early stage, thereby contributing to the lasting success of our group.

    Perhaps you have knowledge of harmful behaviours or risks that endanger the company. In order to investigate indications of violations in a fair and appropriate fashion, we offer a platform for submitting reports, either anonymously, if desired, or by name, that is secured with the latest technologies. By setting up a postbox, you can actively participate in the clarification of the situation.

    Every individual shares in the responsibility of protecting our company from harm.

  • What reports can I submit via the whistleblowing portal?

    You can submit information that refers to possible serious compliance violations, such as acts of corruption, violations of competition law, fraud and inaccurate accounting.

    Information on general employment law issues will not be processed. For these issues, please contact the responsible persons in your company directly.

    Further information on what issues can be reported in the whistleblowing portal will be provided to you during the reporting process.

  • What is the process for submitting a report? How do I set up a postbox?

    If you wish to submit a report by name or anonymously, click the "Submit report" button on the top left of our introduction page.

    The reporting process consists of 4 steps:

    1. First of all, you will be asked to read an information text for the protection of your anonymity and to answer a security query.
    2. On the following page, you will be asked about the key aspect of your report.
    3. On the report page, you can elaborate on your report in your own words and answer questions about the incident by simply selecting responses. In the free text field, you can write 4,096 characters, which corresponds to a full DIN A4 page. You may also submit a file of up to 2 MB to support your report. Please remember that attached files can contain information about their author. After you have submitted your report, you will receive a reference number as confirmation that you submitted this report.
    4. Finally, you will be asked to set up your own secured postbox. You will receive feedback from us via this postbox. Further, via this postbox, you can answer our questions and we will keep you posted on the status of your report.

    If you already have a secured postbox, you can access it directly via the "Login" button. First, you have to confirm the security query here as well.

    As long as you do not enter any data which allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity, the whistleblowing portal technically protects your anonymity.

  • How can I receive feedback and still remain anonymous?

    As part of your report submission, you can set up a secured postbox with a password and user name that you select yourself. An examiner at Gerresheimer will inform you about what is happening concerning your report via the secured postbox or will ask questions should any individual items be unclear.

    Your report is kept anonymous through encryption and other special security routines. This is also true for your user name, which is not identifiable by anyone else. You will never be asked for personal information at any time during the reporting process. Do not submit any information or documents that can be traced back to you. This ensures that you also remain anonymous during any subsequent dialogue with the examiner, if desired.

    You can additionally protect your anonymity by not using a PC that is made available to you by your employer.

    We are interested in reports that protect the company from harm, not in your identity as a whistleblower!
