Whistleblower system

As a global industrial company in the chemical sector, we have an influence on the living conditions of many people and our environment. We are aware of this great responsibility and contribute to positive social development through our actions (Code of Conduct METADYNEA AUSTRIA GMBH, PDF). As a company, we want to find out about suspicions in order to clarify them and remedy possible grievances. With the METADYNEA AUSTRIA GMBH whistleblower system, we offer a simple way to report potential rule violations.

Information on EU-wide protection of whistleblowers can be found on the European Commission's information page on the protection of whistleblowers.

How can a report be submitted?

You can use the form below to quickly and easily report concerns or misconduct that you believe could affect our company or the well-being of employees or third parties.

Please note that this form may not be used to make false accusations. Reporting knowingly false information is prohibited and may result in criminal penalties.

If you would like to submit a report orally, please contact the HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTORY (telephone: +43 (0) 2732 899 1239). Our Human Resources management will listen to you and treat the report and your identity confidentially.

It is possible to submit reports directly to the relevant authority (Federal Office for the Prevention and Fight against Corruption, BAK: www.bak.gv.at/601/). However, we ask you to let us know your concerns directly. This will allow you to have unbureaucratic long-term solutions contribute to improvements in our company.

What happens to your notice?

By submitting the form, your report will be sent to the Human Resources Department at METADYNEA Austria GmbH and will be treated confidentially there.

After receiving your report, you will receive a confirmation of receipt within seven days. You will also receive feedback on the content within three months.

Anonymity

We encourage you to include your name when submitting your report. As a whistleblower, you are legally protected from any form of reprisal in the European Union. You therefore do not have to fear any professional or private disadvantages.

If you still want to remain anonymous, you have the option of entering an email address that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. It is important to include this (anonymous) email address (e.g. GMX, Gmail,…) in the form so that we can give you feedback on your report.
