Why has JL established a whistleblower scheme?
JL is a responsible group of companies with an open corporate culture where everyone is encouraged and free to raise their concern should they become aware of any irregularity or unlawful activity.

Under the whistleblower scheme JL employees and stakeholders may, in good faith, anonymously or non-anonymously report any concerns which they may have about serious matters which may disclose illegalities, generate economic loss, damage the reputation of JL, or have similar effects.
Who can report concerns?
JL's employees and JL stakeholders such as customers, suppliers, business partners and external consultants can report concerns.
What kind of concerns may be reported?
Any concerns with respect to JL irregularities or illegalities, such as:

  • Economical crime such as embezzlement, bribery, corruption, fraud and forgery;
  • Material breaches of health and safety regulations;
  • Submission of false or misleading information to public authorities
  • Material breaches of environmental regulations/pollution; and
  • Physical violence and sexual offenses.
Who may concerns be reported about?
Concerns can be reported on matters committed by JL employees on behalf of JL.
Is it possible to follow the process?
You can monitor the process of the matter. When you report a concern, you will later have the opportunity to anonymously log on to the system and see whether the person processing the case has asked additional questions or requests additional documentation. Any subsequent interaction is 100% anonymous and solely relies on the reporter's willingness to log on to the system and answer any questions raised by the person processing the case. We recommend that you log on to the system about a week after you have reported a concern to see whether any clarifying questions have been asked
Who deals with concerns reported?
Incoming reports are investigated by the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Chairman of the Audit Committee assisted by the JL General Counsel.
