You should live by Norske Skog’s values in every aspect of your work, not only by acting with integrity, but also to speak up if you feel that you, your colleagues’ or the company’s values are being compromised. If you come across anything that may constitute a breach of law, regulations and/or is compromising the Steering Guidelines or other steering documents of the group, you should report it as detailed below.
The starting point is that you should discuss your concerns with your superior. However, if your concerns are of a serious nature and you consider it appropriate, you may address other superiors, local human resources or HSE representatives, local management or the relevant person responsible in the Corporate Legal Department.
If you for any reason are uncomfortable using any of the above channels, you may report your concern or complaint to the centralised Norske Skog reporting channel by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your report will always be treated in confidence, unless otherwise is explicitly agreed with you, and you may request that the report will be followed up by a person who is proficient in your preferred language.
It is an important principle under the Steering Guidelines that the reporting in good faith by employees of actual or suspected breaches or other concerns within Norske Skog shall not have adverse consequences for the relevant employee’s employment relationship with Norske Skog. It is equally important to avoid misuse of the reporting mechanisms, which leads to unfounded or unfair treatment or negative consequences for employees. Anyone who knowingly submits a false report may be subject to disciplinary actions.
