Procedure for Reporting Breach Incidents of the Code of Conduct & Ethical Behaviour
Our Company, following the policies and principles of the Quest Group is committed to fostering an entrepreneurial spirit of transparency and accountability. Therefore, it demands the highest possible level of professional and ethical conduct from all its employees and business partners. In order to establish the prevention of wrongdoing, unethical and unlawful behaviour/actions, we wish to ensure that if any of our employees or a third party has suspicions about the above issues regarding the operation of our Company, they have the opportunity to report it, while remaining anonymous if they so wish.
Submitted reports may be official (signed) or anonymous.
However, it is encouraged that the reporting persons submit official (signed) reports as this facilitates the necessary investigation and the adoption of the necessary measures.
You can report incidents involving violations of company Policies/Procedures and the applicable legislation (e.g. fraud, corruption, theft, embezzlement, non-compliance with the Quest Group's Code of Conduct & Ethical Behavior, data breaches and/or security incidents and any act or omission in general that may cause moral or material damage to Quest Holdings and its subsidiaries) using the following communication channels:
- They are encouraged to disclose freely if they become aware of any activity that deviates from the principles of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Behaviour and may constitute a cause for concern.
- Such reports are instrumental in avoiding or mitigating any potential negative impact on the Company, while at the same time encouraging a culture of transparency, accountability and integrity.
- An official (signed) report of a violation is more reliable, while providing the possibility to communicate directly with the reporting party (employee or third party) to provide clarifications and additional information during the report verification process.
- The Company's Management will ensure that no actions will be taken against any employee that reports, in good faith, any actual or alleged behaviour/action that constitutes a violation.
- The reporting procedure should not be misused for frivolous accusations or personal complaints. To prevent malicious or unfounded reports, sanctions may be imposed on reporting parties that have acted in bad faith and legal action for defamation may be taken.
