Integrity Warnings Policy

The current policy sets out how TeraPlast S.A. receives, processes, investigates and resolves complaints regarding breaches of integrity rules, principles, values or conduct, as regulated by national and European legislation, as well as the company's code of ethics and conduct, internal policies and procedures.

Through the Whistleblowing system created, TeraPlast encourages individuals who have, in a professional context, objective information related to violations of laws or integrity rules by the company, its employees or collaborators, to report these irregularities through reporting channels provided.

TeraPlast will initiate all the necessary actions, according to the legal regulations, for the analysis and solution of the identified irregularities, as well as the context that allowed their occurrence. Through this action we join the European directives and the company's initiatives to support a high level of ethics and professional behavior in all the activities we carry out, thus promoting a sustainable and efficient business model.

    General principles

    • Trust

    By ensuring a trustworthy environment among its employees, shareholders, customers and suppliers, TeraPlast encourages the reporting of any illegal, immoral or material acts that could harm the physical and mental integrity of individuals or the prestige of the company. The company will also rigorously interpret actions subsequent to the reports received and will provide, within a reasonable time, feedback to the persons making the reports, at their request.

    • Objectivity

    The purpose of integrity warnings is to take corrective or preventive action against breaches of integrity laws, principles and rules. Therefore, we encourage the clearest and most specific description of the facts, actions, words, observable behaviours reported, detailing the circumstances in which they were produced, the time and space, naming and / or description of all persons who were observed as part from the context described. If, by the nature of the act reported, depending on the context and the course of the investigations, it is necessary that the notifications submitted can be proved, as appropriate, to the competent authorities.

    • Good faith

    The reports sent by the integrity whistleblowers will be investigated and thus, beyond the time and resources involved in the investigation, could have a negative psychological effect on the persons mentioned as suspected of committing the acts. Therefore, we rely on the good faith of those who submit reports and on the understanding that possible "false alarms" intended under the protection of anonymity will act against the common goal of living in a better world.

    • Safety

    Integrity alerts are protected against retaliation for the objective, neutral and bona fide use of the integrity warning system. Thus, any disciplinary sanction, discriminatory treatment or other action against him, such as dismissal, transfer, reduction or withdrawal of benefits, refusal of promotion or access to training, termination of cooperation, threats, prosecution or other such actions against him or her, is prohibited. his family. If the personal safety of a whistleblower or members of his family is endangered, they must be entitled to protective measures.
