Our Speak-Up Line

Our Speak-Up Line is our global whistleblower and helpline system.

It is operated and monitored by the Corporate Governance Office in line with the Speak-Up Line Policy and Investigation Management manual. Employees, who are asked to help investigate incidents reported into the Speak-Up Line, receive training on how to conduct investigations.

Everyone who makes a report in good faith is guaranteed protection from retaliation and all reports are treated confidentially. The Speak-Up Line is available 24 hours every day of the year. Reports can be filed online or through any mobile browser. The Speak-Up Line is available in local languages and hosted by an independent third party in compliance with local regulations and GDPR.

Training and Awareness

Our values - Honesty, Frugality and Courage - all reflect our commitment to conduct our business fairly and with integrity, to use company assets wisely, and to speak-up when confronted with unethical situations. As such, Embla Medical fully subscribes to Principle 10 of the UN Global Compact: We will work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery. Bribery and corruption are prohibited, and Embla Medical does not authorize nor tolerate any business practice that does not comply with our Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABAC) Policy or law or regulation against bribery and corruption.

All employees have been made aware of our ABAC policy through the Code of Conduct training. Selected groups of employees receive specific ABAC training through live training sessions. In addition to the ABAC policy and training, Embla Medical provides specific training on Competition and Anti-Trust, Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering to selected groups of employees, in line with our key compliance risks.
