Reporting of concerns (Integrity Channel)

Havila Shipping believes that openness and good communication throughout the organization promotes a better work culture. Havila Shipping acknowledges the risk of violations of the Code of Conduct and policies, and depends on the willingness of employees and external parties to raise concerns in order to uphold high ethical standards.

Reporting of concerns (whistleblowing) is to report possible illegal, or suspected illegal, actions and violations of Havila Shipping’s Code of Conduct and policies. Examples of violations include, but are not limited to: fraud and corruption, harassment and discrimination, and adverse impact to the environment and human rights.

Employees are encouraged to use their right and responsibility to report concerns. This also applies to external parties, including employees of associated companies.

The whistleblower decides what information is to be provided. There is no requirement that the whistleblower is able to prove the event, act or omission. However, to allow Havila Shipping to perform adequate follow-up actions, the report should include as much detail as possible and, if available, supporting evidence.

Reports of concerns can be made to Havila Shipping’s Integrity Channel, managed by the ESG task group. The Integrity Channel offers the whistleblower the possibility of reporting anonymously.
