​COWI is commited to universal sustainability principles and UN goals. Progress is reported in the UN Global Compact Report. Furthermore, a whistleblower system has been established to prevent violations of internal procedures and national legislation.​​

The whistleblower consists of a phone-line that is open 24 hours and a website that can be used to provide information on serious violations of international procedures and national legislation.

Guideline on whistleblower

COWI wishes to maintain a high standard of business ethics and encourages anyone to talk to their line manager on concerns regarding business ethics. If they feel uncomfortable doing so they
can use the COWI Hotline on anti-corruption and business ethics also called Whistleblower.

To meet our objectives, we will:
  • Ensure that any concerns raised through the
    Whistleblower are investigated and appropriate
    action taken.
  • Allow everyone, including employees, former
    employees, sub-contractors, agency staff and
    business partners to use the Whistleblower.
  • Allow Whistleblower notifications within:
    - Violations of law, regulations and internal policies
    - Misbehaviours with regard to accounting and auditing
    - Fraud, theft and conflict of interest
    - Improper giving or receiving gifts
    - Discrimination and harassment
    - Violation of environmental protection, health and safety law.
  • Make the Whistleblower publicly available.
  • Continuously train our employees in maintaining our culture of integrity and honesty and inform them of the Whistleblower.
