See something?
Say something!

In this reporting system you can quickly and easily report concerns about actual or suspected misconduct to help protect Ørsted's integrity.
You can choose to remain strictly anonymous, however we encourage you to provide your name in the report. Regardless of whether you do so or not, please open a secure post box. This makes it easier for us to communicate in a confidential and anonymous way. Most cases are best resolved with some clarification questions from the investigation officer.

Provide as much information as you can. It is also possible to upload files, copies of documents etc.
All reports will be kept strictly confidential to the extent permitted by law.. 

Please note that this is not an emergency response call center. 

The reporting system can be used by employees, business partners, suppliers, customers and any affected community.

If you are an employee of Ørsted you may also consider to address your concerns to your manager, your manager's manager or a business unit Compliance Officer. A list of these can be found in Vital. You are also asked to consult the policy on Good Business Conduct, found above and on Vital.

Suppliers, agents, business partners and other third parties of Ørsted are asked to consult the Code of Conduct for business partners.

Whistleblowers will experience no retaliation or other negative repercussions from their decision to come forward and speak up.

No cookies, IP address or similar is stored.

We do however ask that you keep communication lines open by generating a secure, anonymous post box. This is done once you have completed your reporting. 

The post box allows you and the investigating officer to engage with the case, perhaps asking clarification questions which almost always results in a more successful outcome. Check your post box after a week.
All reports will be received and assessed by a special function within Ørsted's Internal Audit.
Internal Audit is an independent function reporting directly to the Ørsted Board of Directors, via the Audit & Risk Committee.

Every case will undergo a proper investigation of facts. The number of individuals involved in each case will be strictly limited.

The Hotline is monitored 24/7 and all new investigations are initiated within a few days of receiving the report. 

All reports are entered directly on a secure server and strict data security policies are applied. All processing of personal data is carried out in terms of applicable national and international laws with the specific aim of protecting the rights and freedoms of persons.
