Whistleblowing and Reporting at Hilscher

Hilscher does not tolerate illegal or unethical conduct in business relations of any kind. We have clear guidelines in place to ensure compliance: we do not tolerate violations of any legal stipulation, company policy, or principle of our Code of Conduct, and we will deal with any such infringement appropriately. To maintain compliance, it is important to be informed about any misconduct engaged in by either our employees or our suppliers.

We have set up a whistleblower system where you can report known or suspected violations, even anonymously.


The whistleblower process

By tipping us off, you can help us to do the right thing as a company by uncovering and addressing inappropriate conduct to the benefit of our customers, our community, our environment and our own company.
