Akastor is dedicated to promoting ethics and values in our portfolio companies. In order to facilitate reporting of breaches of Akastor’s Code of Conduct, Akastor has established a whistleblowing system.

The whistleblowing channel is available for employees and external parties, and for any negative activity in any of our portfolio companies. Blowing the whistle is positive, because it can contribute to the positive development of Akastor.

In order to ensure confidentiality of the whistleblower, Akastor has set up an agreement with an independent third party to receive whistleblowing reports. ‘SpeakUp’ is a confidential reporting website operated by InTouch, an independent company. ‘SpeakUp’ is totally confidential and available at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and you can remain anonymous if you want to.

You can use the link below to report any cases you come across.

It is also possible to notify Akastor directly at whistleblowing@akastor.com

Examples of notifiable conditions:

  • Breaches of the Akastor Code of Conduct
  • Violations of the law
  • Corruption
  • Employees being bullied or frozen out
  • Tax violations
  • Threats to life and health
  • Breaches of health, safety and environmental regulations
  • Misuse of inside information
  • Fraud and embezzlement

Akastor will ensure that there will be no retaliation against a whistleblower for reporting possible violations in good faith.

Our Whistleblowing borchure can be downloaded from here.

All Akastor portfolio companies can use the whistleblowing channel.
