Reporting compliance breaches

Compliance with laws and internal regulations is a top priority for the Liebherr Group. In order to meet this requirement, it is important to identify possible misconduct early and follow up on it immediately. For compliance with statutory regulations as well as the Code of Conduct, employees of the Liebherr Group and external informants are encouraged to report possible misconduct.

Possible misconduct may concern the following areas:

  • Economic crimes (corruption, money laundering, fraud, embezzlement)
  • Breaches of antitrust and competition law
  • Money laundering crimes
  • Breaches of applicable embargo and export regulations

The Liebherr Group has created several options for reporting a suspected compliance breach. Verbal tips of violations or infringements are accepted in German, French and English. You can contact us from Monday to Friday from 09:00 – 11:30 and from 14:00 – 16.30. For tips in another language, we kindly request that you send these by post or electronically. For further communication as well as any queries, we also ask for an option to contact you.

Confidential treatment of the report as well as the personal data is assured for every internal and external informant who reports a compliance breach with good intentions. No negative effects, discrimination or penalties are tolerated for an informant who reports a compliance breach. However, misuse of a compliance report is not tolerated.

Upon receipt of the report the Chief Compliance Officer conducts a preliminary preview of the potential infringement or violation. If the suspicion is substantiated, the case is assigned to the responsible investigation unit with a specific investigation order. Incriminating as well as exculpatory facts are included in the investigation. There is a presumption of innocence as long as the investigation unit cannot prove a breach.
