Reliable information helps us to identify violations early on and reduce the damage to our company, employees and business partners. There are several ways to communicate with us – including anonymously via our whistleblower system if preferred.
For this purpose, a neutral reporting office managed by a whistleblower officer has been set up in the Werner & Mertz Group.
The reporting office is responsible for receiving and processing reports and communicating with the reporting person via the digital whistleblower channel (Integrity Line) confidentially and – where permitted – anonymously. The current whistleblower officer is:
Dr. Jan Heuer
All employees in the company group and third parties that do business with the Werner & Mertz Group have the option to provide whistleblower information. Werner & Mertz protects the interests of whistleblowers through the implementation of this secure whistleblower system and also through its commitment to treat any information received as confidential and to use all possible means to protect whistleblowers acting in good faith against any disadvantages resulting from filing a report (protection against reprisals).
