Whistleblower and Ethics Reporting Channel

This is why the implementation of a whistleblower system is so important

Trust begins with a whistleblower system. For both companies and government agencies, the establishment of a whistleblower system is becoming increasingly important for reasons of governance and compliance. With the Whistleblower and Ethics Reporting Channel, you can ensure the implementation of various regulations such as the Whistleblower Protection Act and the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act securely, and easily. Through this channel, whistleblowers can confidentially report legal violations.

Whistleblowing report submission

Our Whistleblower and Ethics Reporting Channel is accessible via different ways. Whistleblowers can report breaches by phone in addition to using the company-specific, self-explanatory and intuitive web form. We also offer whistleblowers the option of submitting reports anonymously or by providing personal contact information. This way, we create a trusting and secure environment and guarantee whistleblowers the greatest possible protection and absolute data security.


Status Tracking

After submitting a report, whistleblowers can log in to the Whistleblower and Ethics Reporting Channel website at any time with their case number and check the status of their report in the whistleblower online mailbox. The functionalities to add further information to their report, to submit files and to contact our experts via chat are available as well.



Submitted reports undergo a workflow-based process at PwC. In addition to a validity check, the report is concretised, if necessary, by contacting the person providing the report within the legally defined deadlines. We also make a recommendation for action.


Transparent case overview

From the company's point of view, you can view the submitted reports as well as our review result with the corresponding recommendation for action in our multilingual dashboard at any time and thus obtain transparency at a glance. The reports can be filtered by various criteria such as time periods, category of the report or the respective processing status. The anonymity of whistleblowers and affected persons is preserved in the dashboard at all times.
