Ramboll’s Whistleblower enables our employees, business associates and other external stakeholders to speak up if they identify or experience irregularities with Ramboll’s core values and commitments, any of our Group policies and procedures, as well as any legal misconduct.
No employee will suffer retaliation, discrimination or disciplinary action for reports made in good faith, or based on a reasonable belief of violation or suspected violation.
What can be reported?
You should report any serious compliance related concerns, e.g. severe breach of Our Fundamentals or Group policies, legal violations, fraud, or other matters which represent illegal activity, or could cause harm to Ramboll or its employees.
The Whistleblower is not for commercial inquiries, questions related to applications for employment, or other general questions. Please contact the relevant Ramboll Business Unit or see our Careers site for further information.
Concerns related to the employment terms or matters at the local workplace such as conflicts with colleagues and managers, disciplinary sanctions, correct and timely payment of wages and benefits should normally be resolved locally, unless the matter is exceptionally serious or cannot be reported through the normal reporting lines.
The Whistleblower system may not be used to make false accusations against others, and altogether, deliberately untrue information may not be reported.
All Whistleblower reports are anonymous and confidential unless you directly instruct otherwise – any reports filed cannot be traced back to you. However, we do encourage you to provide as much information as possible to ease the investigation, and to identify yourself if you feel comfortable with it. Ramboll ensures that all concerns are treated seriously and appropriately, and all reports are received only by the Group Compliance Function and an independent third party.
Open a secure post box
When you send the report, you can choose to open a secure post box, allowing us to contact you for further questions and inquiries that can help us solve the case. You decide whether you want to remain anonymous or write your name. All communication through the post box is safe and secure.
We encourage that you set up a post box – even if you do so anonymously - because we may not be able to finalise the case without further information from you. Opening a post box will also allow us to let you know when the case is closed.
When you create a post box, you will be given a case number, and you must choose a password. You will use the case number and password to log in to the post box to see if you have received any questions – and you can provide additional information to us.
Notice that the post box is unique to the reported case, meaning that when the case has been investigated and is closed, the post box will also close, and you will no longer be able to log in.
