Whistleblower scheme

Whistleblower scheme

We have set up a whistleblower scheme, which you can read more about on this page. We encourage you to read this before reporting your suspicion or concern.


You can submit a report if you are a current or former employee in Kentaur or one of our subsidiaries (“Kentaur”), a business partner, supplier, customer or another external party with a connection to Kentaur.


You can make a report through the whistleblower scheme if you have knowledge or suspicion of breaches of applicable laws and regulations and other serious matters, including breaches of EU law as set forth in the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Criminal offences, including fraud, embezzlement, misuse of assets, forgery of documents, accounting manipulation, bribery, corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing
  • Competition law breaches and public procurement law breaches
  • Breaches of occupational health and safety legislation
  • Breaches of environmental regulations and laws on the prevention of the environment pollution
  • Breach of professional secrecy
  • Breach of protection of privacy and personal data
  • Serious and/or repeated breaches of internal rules and guidelines in Kentaur
  • Discrimination, severe bullying, severe harassment, physical violence, threats and sexual abuse


The above are only examples. If you are in doubt as to whether or not your report falls within the scope of the whistleblower scheme, we encourage you to use our whistleblower scheme. The report will then be assessed, and you will receive feedback on whether your report is covered by the whistleblower scheme.

Other matters, minor breaches of internal guidelines, complaints about other employees’ behavior or incompetencies, including information on less serious workplace conflicts and disagreements are not covered by the scope of whistleblower scheme. These types of matters must be raised in a dialogue with an immediate manager.

You are encouraged to report any real or suspected breaches of the law through this internal whistleblower scheme. However, you may also decide to report your suspicion or concern to the external whistleblower schemes set up by the authorities.


If you decide to use Kentaur’s whistleblower scheme to report your concern, your report is received by an external third party, PwC (PwC Statsautoriseret Revisionspartnerselskab "PwC"). PwC is an independent audit, tax and advisory firm, which receives reports on behalf of Kentaur to ensure an independent and anonymous channel for you to report your concerns. After a preliminary review, the reports will be forwarded for further processing in Kentaur.

PwC initially assesses whether the whistleblower report falls within the scope of the whistleblower scheme. If the whistleblower report does not have a sufficient level of information, PwC will try to obtain more relevant information from the whistleblower, if possible.


PwC forwards all whistleblower reports to Kentaur after having evaluated who can handle the whistleblower report to ensure that the whistleblower report can be handled by an impartial and competent person and is not forwarded to a person whom the whistleblower report relates to either directly or indirectly, or where there may be another risk of conflict of interest.



The HR-manager is the overall responsible for the whistleblower scheme. The HR-manager is responsible for proper management of the whistleblower scheme and diligent follow-up on whistleblower reports. The HR-manager is responsible for deciding whether investigations of whistleblower reports shall be conducted and for ensuring that whistleblower reports are handled in compliance with applicable rules and Kentaur’s whistleblower policy.

A special duty of confidentiality applies to those who handle and investigate reports.

All investigations of whistleblower reports are carried out with due respect for maintaining and ensuring independence, confidentiality, data protection and data security.

Kentaur and PwC will keep information about the identity of the whistleblower and any persons mentioned in the whistleblower reports confidential to the greatest possible extent.



Kentaur does not tolerate harassment and retaliation against whistleblowers.

No whistleblower will be victimised for raising a matter through the whistleblower scheme as long as the whistleblower has raised a legitimate concern in good faith. Employees who in good faith make a report will not be subject to negative consequences, including consequences of an employment law nature, even if the report proves to be unfounded.
