- Whistleblowing means that a natural person within or outside the organization who, in a work-related context with the Alfa Group, reports/raises concerns that some form of serious wrongdoing is occurring, will occur or has occurred in the operations that is of public interest.
- The term “wrongdoing” is defined as all types of failures or improprieties, regardless of whether this is a matter of deliberate conduct or negligence. Even various types of failures or improprieties that have not yet occurred, but that are highly likely to occur, may constitute wrongdoing. Attempts to conceal any wrongdoing may, in themselves, constitute wrongdoing. Wrongdoing does not necessarily have to be recent or ongoing.
- In order to be of public interest, the circumstances must be serious, concern a group that can be described as the general public and there must be a legitimate interest in the wrongdoing being reported.
- The nature of the wrongdoing must also be such that, when making a report, the whistleblower had reasonable grounds to assume that the information about the wrongdoing was true.
Reports can be made anonymously using our internal reporting channels:

- The links above bring the whistleblower to the Whistleblower Partners portal, where the whistleblower can choose to submit a new report or log in and view a previously reported case.
- After opening the reporting tool, the whistleblower can fill in the relevant category of wrongdoing. The whistleblower can also provide information about when the incident took place and describe what happened. Remember to provide as much detail as possible. The whistleblower can state their name and contact information if they wish to, but a report can also be submitted completely anonymously. In order to facilitate any investigation, please state which company in the Alfa Group the wrongdoing involves, if using the link above for any other company than Alfa Group AB.
- All information submitted via the portal is encrypted so that it cannot be traced back to the person reporting a case. When the whistleblower has submitted their case, they will see a case number and a code on their screen. It is very important for the whistleblower to save this information in order to view the case in the portal.
- The whistleblower receives confirmation about their report within seven days from submission. An initial assessment of the information provided is carried out to identify whether or not the case can be considered a whistleblower case. The whistleblower may be asked questions in connection with receipt of this confirmation. It is important that the questions asked by the investigator are answered by the whistleblower. Save your code so that you can log in and view the status of the case and answer any questions.
- Please note that the whistleblower may not share confidential documents when reporting a case and may not disclose any more confidential information than is necessary when submitting a report. Furthermore, the whistleblower may not commit a criminal offence in order to obtain the information referred to in the report.
