Elia Group’s whistleblowing system

The importance of our ‘governance’ pillar has increased significantly, as it is considered to be a prerequisite and enabler for all areas related to sustainability. We therefore devoted an entire dimension of our Act Now programme to this topic: dimension 5. This dimension aims to strengthen stakeholders’ trust in the Group and  in our sustainability activities as a whole. 

Elia Group's Code of Ethics includes values, standards and rules that we wish to respect in the relationship with our stakeholders: customers, suppliers, shareholders, the community and our employees.

Elia Group has strict requirements for frankness, integrity and applies a zero tolerance against unlawful acts. In line with the EU whistleblowing directive, Elia Group has set up a whistleblower reporting tool: EthicsAlert. This tool can be used to notify the company, anonymously or not, of any violation of any applicable laws and regulations or of the Elia Group Code of Ethics.

Elia Group is committed to take all cases of integrity violations seriously.

How it works?
