Whistleblower hotline

We encourage an open and honest dialog and we encourage you to come forward if an ethical dilemma occurs. We know it is not always easy to come forward. This is why we have adopted a whistleblower hotline. You can use this hotline if you do not feel you can report your concern directly to someone in the GN Group, e.g. your usual contact person or the Group Legal department. The whistleblower hotline is available in 27 countries and 21 languages and is independently managed by a third party.
