Our commitment to whistleblowing

The Company promotes an open corporate culture that is based on ethical principles, of transparency and responsibility, inspired by our guiding values. For this reason Solesi S.p.A. offers internal channels to report to the Whistleblowing Reports Manager information relating to any violations of laws, regulations, the Code of Ethics and Conduct, as well as the 231 Organizational Model.
Through the active and responsible participation of both employees and third parties, reporting non-compliant behavior allows the company to identify potential irregularities and promptly adopt the necessary corrective actions, thus preventing possible economic or reputational damage.

Reports to the National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) through an external channel

In the event that, after making a report through internal channels, one does not receive the acknowledgment of receipt and/or feedback on the action taken regarding the report, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe (based on concrete circumstances and information that can be obtained) that the internal report will not be effectively followed up or that it could result in retaliation, or that the violation may pose an imminent or clear danger to public interest, it is possible to submit a report to ANAC through the IT platform. ANAC’s website provides a list of Third Sector Entities that offer support to whistleblowers (information, assistance, and free consultations on reporting procedures and protection from retaliation).
