Etteplan’s First Whistle-service

Reporting misconduct and seeking advice


Etteplan offers various channels for the asking for advice and for reporting suspected ethical offences. 

You have several options and channels for actions:

  1. If you are an Etteplan employee, you can always speak to your supervisor or their supervisor. They are there to tackle any misuse or perceived bad behavior in the company.
  2. If you wish, you can also speak to Etteplan’s Senior Vice President, Human Resources.
  3. Regarding the use of social media or public discussion; please contact Etteplan’s Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications
  •  If you feel uncomfortable speaking or writing to any of the above:
  • You may also leave a message on our First Whistle tool:
  • ​​​​​​​First Whistle is a service enabling anyone to voice concerns or report non-compliance in confidence. It provides the option of anonymity, while enabling communication with the person voicing a concern or reporting non-compliant behavior. All reports submitted to First Whistle are treated with care and processed in a safe and secure environment. You can leave your contact details, or you can share your concerns anonymously.
  • Once you have sent your report in First Whistle, please remember to save your code from the system. With the code you can later follow the case in the system.

If you are Etteplan’s partner, customer or other external stakeholder, and you have a concern about the activity or behavior of Etteplan’s employees or leadership, you may also use the feedback channel (above), or contact Etteplan HR.


Whistle blowing protection

We have zero-tolerance for any form of retaliation of any kind against individuals who voice their concerns, report misconduct, or assist in investigations of possible violations. We will ensure complete confidentiality for anyone reporting suspected violations. There will be no retribution or punishment for any individual who reports a suspected violation in good faith, even if this claim is later found to be without merit.  

However, it is also important to understand that presenting an accusation with malicious intent, or that you know to be false, is also an offence and may have consequences.
