SIT fosters an open corporate culture marked by ethics, transparency and responsibility, and inspired by the values that guide us: trust, integrity, courage, passion and inclusion.

For this reason, SIT provides an internal channel for reporting to the Supervisory Board information referable to the Company’s personnel and/or third parties regarding violations of laws and regulations, the Group’s Code of Ethics and Conduct, the Organizational Model 231, and the system of rules and procedures in force. This channel is not available for commercial complaints or disputes and requests related to personal interests.

Through the active and responsible participation of employees and third parties, reporting any non-compliant behavior enables the company to detect any irregularities and take timely corrective action, preventing any economic or reputational damage.

Who can report?

Anyone can send a report, even anonymously: employees, former employees, job applicants, partners, customers, suppliers, consultants, collaborators, associates and, more generally, anyone who is a legitimate bearer of an interest in the company’s activities.

The report must be adequately substantiated, i.e., it must contain sufficient details to enable the reported facts to be ascertained (e.g., elements that enable the identification of the individuals involved, the context, place and time period of the reported facts, and supporting documentation).

How to report?

A report can be submitted through the Whistleblowing Portal (to access CLICK HERE) suitable for ensuring the confidentiality of the reporter’s identity through the use of secure protocols and encryption tools. Upon completion of the entry, the Portal provides a Unique Identification Code that allows for verification of the processing status and for sending and receiving communications (including anonymously);

How reports are handled

Reports are received by the Supervisory Board.

Within 7 days of receipt, an acknowledgement of receipt of the report will be given, and within 3 months of that acknowledgement, feedback will be provided on the action being taken or intended to be taken on the report.

Guarantee of confidentiality and protections

Legislative Decree No. 24 of March 10, 2023 (transposition of European Directive 2019/1937 on Whistleblowing) introduced a unified regulation of reporting channels and protections accorded to whistleblowers in the public and private sectors.

The whistleblower, the facilitator, and the persons involved in the report are guaranteed absolute confidentiality. In the case of anonymous reports, the identity of the reporter cannot be traced.

No form of personal or professional retaliation is permitted or tolerated because of the report made. If you believe that you have been retaliated against because of the report, you can notify the National Anticorruption Authority (ANAC) through the IT Platform.

All processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the data protection regulations.
