Beyond this, complaints can also be made through Group Compliance (i.e. reported to the regional HR department or compliance officer or Group Compliance Officer). An additional channel through which all violations against the Code of Conduct can be reported is the »Clariant Integrity Line«, which has been introduced in 2014, including discrimination or violations of human rights.
