Bazzoli, no. 34, 25070 Bione (BS).
The company’s whistleblowing officer ensures that the identity of the whistleblower is kept confidential.
The handling of reports is regulated by the procedure, which can be consulted in full at the following link, to which reference should be made. In any case, the confidentiality of the identity of the whistleblower and of the other persons indicated by Legislative Decree 24/2023 is guaranteed, to whom all the protections and limitations of liability provided for by the decree itself apply. Any kind of retaliatory act against them is prohibited.
