1.2  Aim and purpose

In line with ERNI’s Code of Conduct, we want to protect employees who come forward and report concerns in good faith by encouraging a culture in which employees can raise concerns regarding  unethical conducts without having to fear any adverse consequences so they can be  addressed to help ERNI getting better and safer business by preventing non-compliance with the Code of Conduct, ERNI Regulations and national laws which may lead to impairment of ERNI’s integrity, financial loss, regulatory sanctions and/or reputational damage.
