ACT is 50% owned by APM Terminals, part of the Maersk Group. The Maersk Whistleblower system is a confidential channel for all companies in the Maersk Group. This allows you to raise concerns about possible violations of laws or Group Rules in the following areas:
Foreign trade controls
Threats to health, safety and environment
Sexual harassment or discrimination
The system called EthicsPoint is hosted on NAVEX Global's secure servers and is not a part of Maersk's website or intranet. Any report you make will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible in conducting a thorough investigation. Persons will be notified of and/or involved in an investigation in a "need to know" basis.
Once you submit a report via phone or web you receive a report key and password for follow-up on your submission. Your report is initially reviewed by Group Legal and Group Internal Audit, who determine further action.
The system is only for reporting possible violations of laws or regulations, or issues that may expose the Group to serious legal risks. The system is not for questions regarding applications for employment, commercial inquires or disputes, ordinary HR complaints (e.g. salary, performance, vacation) or general questions. Please visit our Contacts page for these types of enquiry.
The system is administered by an independent company (NAVEX Global), and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It can accommodate calls in more than 75 languages, and you can submit a report anonymously depending on your location.
