We are committed to the highest standards of integrity, honesty and fairness in all internal and external relationships, in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws.
We launched our new whistle-blower portal today, 20 December 2021, in compliance with the EUC Directive 2019/1937.
Our whistle-blower arrangement allows employees to raise a concern about a potential criminal act and/or other serious risk that could threaten the Semco Maritime Group of Companies or any of its employees.
Being an early warning system, whistle-blowing can help alert employers about risks related to e.g.:
- Criminal offences like overcharging, fraud, bribery, forgery and similar
- Other issues related to accounting, internal control and/or corruption
The arrangement shall allow Semco Maritime Group employees and others associated with the Semco Maritime Group, e.g. existing and former partners and former employees, to report risks that may conflict with Semco Maritime Group policies or current legislation.
The new 2021 Semco Maritime whistle-blower arrangement meets the requirements of the Directive (EU) 2019/1937 and will be provided by a S-a-a-S (Software-as-a-Service) platform hosted by Got Ethics, a secure third-party software provider.
The new arrangement is based on a third-party digital solution. It will still be possible for you through this system to report by written message, spoken message, pictures or other means. Furthermore, the system allows for you to stay anonymous and still discuss the matter further with the dedicated whistle-blower officer.
We recommend external business partners to report to their contacts in the Semco Maritime Group or to contacts’ immediate superiors, should they observe any non-compliance. Find your contact at the bottom of this page.
