This page describes the Dstny procedure for the reporting of serious offences through the Dstny Speak Up whistleblowing system.
The aims of Dstny Speak Up and this guide are:
The whistleblowing system may be used by the following persons to report serious offences or suspected serious offences:
Dstny encourages that serious offences are reported through Dstny Speak Up. However, it is emphasized that the system is a voluntary alternative to the ordinary internal channels, e.g. local management, local HR responsible, group management or group legal.
Dstny encourages its staff to use the whistleblowing system and to protect all whistleblowers who makes a report in a good faith etc. Such persons will not be subjected to any adverse treatment or adverse consequence.
The whistleblowing system is not an emergency hotline. Any issues that constitute immediate threats i.e. where there is a threat to health, life etc. should be reported through the ordinary emergency channels.
Types of serious misconduct in the workplace:
Persons can report misconduct through Dstny Speak Up at
Persons can report misconduct in multiple languages: Danish, Dutch, English, French and Swedish.
The whistleblowing service is independent and outsourced to Deloitte, as an external and independent third-party to Destiny. The service is available 24/7.
Upon screening of the report and assessment, the report is forwarded to a Dstny representative, who will investigate the case further.
Persons, who are reporting an incident/misconduct, are free to choose the anonymity level they prefer:
As per the directives from the European Council, Dstny has the obligation to respond and follow up to the whistleblowers’ reports within 3 months (with the possibility of extending this to 6 months for external channels in duly justified cases).
Dstny’s representatives will revert with feedback regarding the progress, or the decision taken in regards to the misconduct reported.
Persons can access the Dstny Speak Up platform freely, with no limitations required. Upon submission of their disclosure, they will be provided with username and password, to further access the website and read feedback on their case, or if applicable, add new information and evidence to their previous reported file.
Whether you want to stay anonymous or not when you contact Dstny Speak Up is up to you – you can stay anonymous or you can tell Dstny Speak Up who you are, although you are encouraged to identify yourself as this frequently makes the investigation and resolution process easier.
