The Board of Directors has established a process to ensure that Company employees and third parties have the ability to report suspected general, operational and financial wrongdoing within the Company.
The Iveco Group Compliance Helpline is managed by an independent third-party supplier and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Reports can be made through a dedicated web portal, by app, by telephone, or to a Company representative. Where permitted by law, reports may be submitted anonymously. Furthermore, when legally required, the nature of the relationships can be limited to only certain parties.
Iveco Group prohibits and will not tolerate any form of retaliation. The Company prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers even if their concerns are ultimately found to be unsubstantiated after investigation. Iveco Group is committed to ensure a secure reporting environment that encourages and enables whistleblowers to speak-up and raise issues and concerns without fear of being retaliated against for doing so.
Concerns about an immediate threat of physical harm or damage to property (e.g. fire, flood), should not be reported to the Compliance Helpline. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local police or emergency responders.
For all other complaints involving allegations of wrongdoing, please provide complete, accurate, and detailed information. The Company review all the reports submitted in a timely manner and, where appropriate, takes corrective action.

You can report to the Group Compliance Helpline using a web intake form through the channel “Raise a Concern to Iveco Group” at: https://ivecogroup.speakup.report/raiseaconcerntoivecogroup.
In those countries where the law establishes that each Legal Entity with more than 249 employees must have its own reporting channel, reports can be made either to the Group Compliance Helpline or to the relevant Legal Entity Compliance Helpline. In the latter case reports can be made using a web intake form through the channel “Raise a concern” at: https://ivecogroup.speakup.report/it/raiseaconcern/home. If you decide to exercise the right to report at the Legal Entity level, central ethics representatives will not be involved in the handling of the report and will not have access to the content of the allegation, unless it affects multiple Legal Entities or constitute a material issue for the Group. The case will instead be managed by the appointed persons for the Legal Entity concerned.
