Ethics and fraud alert

Legrand has put in place a procedure that enables any person to alert the Group to illegal, unethical and/or dangerous actions or behaviour, detrimental to the public interest, to people or to the company. These alerts may be notified to the Group Compliance Officer and the Group Human Resources VP via the email address: ethics.legrand@legrandelectric.com.

Protection for whistle-blowers

As specified in the Group's Charter of Fundamental Principles, Legrand provides whistle-blowers with protection against reprisals. This means that no one may suffer reprisals, or threats of reprisals, because they have reported an ethics or fraud issue in good faith.

Strict confidentiality is maintained

Information collected by all recipients of the report and the people concerned remain strictly confidential.

Fields covered by the ethics and fraud alert

The notion of ethics and fraud alert covers, in particular:

1. Compliance in business relations with our stakeholders:
 - Compliance with competition rules;
 - Good business practices, particularly in the fight against corruption;
 - Prevention of money laundering and compliance with economic and financial sanctions;
 - Fraud risk management.

2. Ethical behaviour in work relations:
 - Discrimination and harassment at work;
 - Guarantee of health and safety at work;

3. Serious environmental damage
For example, emissions or pollution of soil, air and water, illegal dumping of waste, etc.

Data Protection

The Group ethics and fraud alert system was reported to the French data protection authority, CNIL.
Any abuse of the system will lead to disciplinary sanctions, in addition to legal proceedings. Conversely, use of the system in good faith will not result in any disciplinary sanction or discrimination against the author of an alert, even if the facts are subsequently found to be inexact, or no further action is deemed to be necessary.
The aim of the system is to make the process easier for whistle-blowers, but its use remains voluntary.
For processing and verification purposes, any data contained in the alert may be transferred to a non member state of the European Community, within the framework of the Group's Binding Corporate Rules.
Anyone involved in an alert has a right to access and correct data concerning them.
