At Huhtamaki, it is important for us to maintain a speak-up process that helps us to manage serious risks affecting individuals, the company, society or the environment. All Huhtamaki’s stakeholders play a crucial role in maintaining Huhtamaki’s ethical standards globally.

All Huhtamaki employees and external stakeholders can report their concerns, or potential non-compliances through the Huhtamaki Speak Up channel. You do not need to have firm evidence of the misconduct before reporting it but reports must be submitted honestly and in good faith.

Huhtamaki takes allegations of misconduct and unethical behavior seriously and will take the necessary steps to investigate and address concerns brought to our attention. Matters that are raised through the Speak Up channel go directly to our Global Ethics & Compliance team. The Global Ethics & Compliance team has:

  • The overall responsibility for Huhtamaki’s channels for speaking up and raising concerns, the governance of these, and compliance investigations
  • The knowledge and experience to perform investigations professionally and independently
  • The authority and reporting line to remain objective and unbiased

Please note that the Huhtamaki speak-up process should not be used:

  • In events presenting an immediate threat to life or property
  • For commercial inquiries or complaints
  • For any normal employment matters or grievances you may have in relation to your terms of employment
  • To settle personal disputes
  • To make accusations which you know are false

The Huhtamaki Speak Up channel is a strongly recommended channel for voicing concerns. The channel is available for all Huhtamaki employees and external stakeholders regardless of your location, language and concern.

However, if you are based in the EU, and your concern relates to specific topic defined by law, such as breaches of the EU law in the areas of public procurement, financial services, prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing, product safety, transport safety, protection of the environment, food safety, public health, consumer protection and the protection of privacy and personal data, you may also report your concern through a local entity-specific channel. This process conforms with the Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council on protection of persons who report breaches of Union law and related applicable national legislations. If you choose to report locally, your report will be received by a locally appointed contact person.
