Confidential submission of reports (whistleblowing)

You are on the whistleblower portal of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ).

This whistleblower portal serves as an entry channel for information on serious violations of our internal principles of conduct, our internal rules as well as applicable laws. For a report to be processed, it must be related to the work of GIZ.

In particular, the following violations can be reported:

  • Corruption and bribery
  • Embezzlement, fraud, misappropriation
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Sexual misconduct and sexual exploitation
  • Violations of human rights

Upon receipt, all reports are carefully examined by the case managers of the Corporate Unit Compliance and Integrity and treated confidentially. It is very helpful if the report is backed up with as much information as possible and a postbox is set up for possible queries.

GIZ ensures, within the scope of its possibilities, that there are no negative repercussions for any whistleblower as a result of a justified report.

With your reports, you help us to prevent or remedy damage inside and outside our company as early as possible. We would like to thank you for this support.

Please note: General complaints (e.g. about tender awards or recruitment procedures) that are not related to serious violations of conduct, rules or laws are to be addressed to the responsible contact persons within the company.
