Managing whistleblowing reports

Telespazio encourages anyone who becomes aware of facts or behaviours that may damage the Group, or contrary to the company’s values, codes and internal rules, law or regulations, and in particular anti-corruption laws, to make a report in the utmost confidentiality.

Reports may be about: Telespazio Group’s Directors, Officers, Employees at all levels, Members of corporate bodies, Group Companies, third parties (e.g.: suppliers, consultants, collaborators, etc.), which may cause, directly or indirectly, economic damage or harm to the Company’s image, in line with the Whistleblowing Management Guidelines.

Reports may include, but are not limited to, the following concerns:

  • attempted, alleged and actual acts of bribery put in place directly, indirectly or solicited by third parties (e.g.: suppliers, consultants, collaborators, customers and intermediaries);

  • conflicts of interest or other violations of the Code of Ethics;

  • alleged offences among those set forth by Telespazio Model 231/2001, committed by the company’s employees in the interest of or for the benefit of the Group;

  • unlawful and/or fraudulent activities causing harm to customers or to the company assets;

  • violations related to the safety of workers.

In order to make an effective report, allowing the competent organizational units to investigate satisfactorily on the reported concerns, it is necessary to provide accurate and reliable facts, producing documentary evidence, if available.   

Assuring confidentiality of the whistleblower, Telespazio offers the following channels to make a report: 

  • Telespazio's web site, through the dedicated platform, even anonymously 

  • Email: odv@telespazio.com

Telespazio ensures protection from retaliation and other discriminatory actions for anyone who makes a report in good faith about any facts or behaviours in violation of laws and regulations, or Telespazio’s rules and Code of Ethics, or refuses to act unethically.
