WHISTLEBLOWING & INFORMATION CHANNEL
Celsa Group makes available to its stakeholders, derived from our commitment to ethics, channels through which they can send information and/or questions on ethical issues.
The internal information system makes it possible to communicate information on offenses that may constitute serious or very serious criminal or administrative offenses and offenses in labor law, safety and health matters. It is designed, established and managed in a secure way, in such a way that it guarantees the confidentiality of the identity of the informant and of any third party mentioned in the communication, and of the actions that are carried out in the management and processing of the same, as well as the data protection, preventing access by unauthorized personnel. The channel allows the presentation of verbal and written communications. Likewise, anonymous communications are allowed.
The possibility of using external channels of information before the competent authorities and, where appropriate, before the institutions, bodies or agencies of the European Union will be informed to the complainants when the “Independent Authority for the Protection of the Informant” is constituted in accordance with the provisions of European regulations and national regulations.

Informants enjoy the rights derived from the application of the principles of protection of people who report the commission of actions or omissions that could constitute criminal, administrative, labor law or European Union law offenses, promoting citizen collaboration through the recognition of the rights of informants and the establishment of guarantees for them against possible retaliation, all through the incorporation of the principles established in Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of October 23 of 2019.
In view of this, informants may not be subject to retaliation, considering as such any act that directly or indirectly involves unfavorable treatment that places the people who suffer it at a particular disadvantage in the work context, solely because of their status as informants. Threats of retaliation and attempted retaliation against persons who make a communication in accordance with the law are also prohibited. By way of example, the following are considered prohibited reprisals: Suspension of the employment contract, dismissal or termination of the employment relationship, annulment of contracts, imposition of disciplinary measures; Damages, including those of a reputational nature, or economic losses, coercion, intimidation or harassment; Negative evaluation or references regarding work performance; Inclusion in blacklists or dissemination of information that hinders access to employment or the contracting of works; Denial of a permit; Denial of training; Unfavorable or unfair treatment.
