Hamburger Hochbahn AG

Criminal behaviour in the work environment is harmful to everyone!

Criminal behaviour in the work environment causes harm to companies, authorities, administrative organisations, taxpayers and society as a whole. A small number of criminals often make money at the expense of the honest majority.

Over its 100-year history, Hamburger Hochbahn AG (HOCHBAHN) has earned its reputation as a high-performance company with integrity. The employees of HOCHBAHN and its subsidiaries work for their company in a dedicated and loyal manner. Behaviour which violates these principles and which damages the reputation and image of the company will not be tolerated.

The UN Global Compact goals and values are an integral part of HOCHBAHN’s company strategy and business processes. Compliance with human rights and labour standards, environmental protection and company ethics therefore extends beyond the company’s own field of business. HOCHBAHN also expects its suppliers and business partners to take responsibility and comply with human rights and environmental obligations.

HOCHBAHN has introduced a certified electronic whistleblowing system. Employees, business partners and customers of HOCHBAHN and its subsidiaries, as well as external third parties, can use this system if they are aware of criminal activities or other legal violations within HOCHBAHN or its subsidiaries or suppliers (in the case of violations within the meaning of the LkSG). Such reports will be taken seriously since malpractice by individuals puts the further development of the company and its jobs at risk.

HOCHBAHN protects you as a whistleblower and provides you with a communication platform for this purpose which is secured using state-of-the-art technologies. You can also set up an anonymous postbox for your use and thus actively contribute to clarifying the case throughout the process.
