In VASS, we want to promote the management of good corporate governance and integrate the culture of criminal prevention into the daily dynamics of the group to create a climate of trust and provide it with greater transparency.
That is why we have implemented a Speak Up Channel in the VASS
As an effective mechanism, so that, through the collaboration of all, irregularities can be detected that could put the reputation and image of the Group at risk.
When should be use this channel?
You can inform us or consult your concerns about any alleged irregularity or non-compliance related to the following areas:
- Workplace Harassment
- Breach of Information Security
- Acts contrary to the integrity of the VASS
- Non-compliance with compliance policy
- Non-compliance with the Code of Ethics/Conduct
- Non-compliance with internal regulations (Anti-bribery and criminal compliance management system).
For more detail, please review our ABC Policy
