How to raise a concern or report cases of possible non-compliance to our Global Supplier Code of Conduct
Sustainability, Integrity, People First, Client Success and Collaboration are at the core of everything we do. These core values also extend to our supplier base, with open communication as key enabler to signal concerns and remedy any possible irregularities.
Our suppliers can raise a concern or report cases of possible unlawful misconduct or irregularities related to their business relationship with Arcadis in three ways:
- Directly with their contact person within Arcadis.
- Via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In the event suppliers are uncomfortable raising a concern or reporting a case of possible non-compliance with their contact person within Arcadis, they can report via the Integrity Line. Calls and reports over the Integrity Line are received on behalf of Arcadis by an independent third party specialist integrity line provider. (https://www.arcadis.com/en/about-us/business-practices/general-business-principles). This Integrity Line is not for general enquiries.
Arcadis will investigate, address, and respond to the concerns of our stakeholders and will take appropriate corrective action in response to any violation. Arcadis recognizes that reported concerns may be about a third party or be in confidence and Arcadis assures it will be handled as such, without repercussions for reports made in good faith.
