Compliance in the Nagel-Group

Do you have something to say? We are listening carefully!

In food logistics, the Nagel-Group stands for performance and quality. This focus is on the one hand a promise to our business partners, and on the other a challenge to the company’s employees. Integrity and transparency in business activities are extremely important in this respect. With the help of an Ombudsperson, the Nagel-Group intends to examine any information on breaches of the law in order to secure the long-term success of the business.

What is an Ombudsperson?

An Ombudsperson is a neutral external person who examines and manages any information received on behalf of the Nagel-Group. We engage an external lawyer who is obliged to maintain confidentiality and also preserves the anonymity of the whistle-blower in respect of the Nagel-Group.

All information received is examined by the Ombudsperson, its plausibility checked and forwarded to the Nagel-Group’s Compliance Officer. The latter sifts through and checks the information received and decides whether it will actually result in an investigation.

Who is the Ombudsperson for the Nagel-Group?

Dr. Eric Heitzer of the law firm Daniel, Hagelskamp & Co acts as an external Ombudsperson for the Nagel-Group. Employees and external third parties can contact this neutral department confidentially, particularly if they observe criminal offences within the company. You can find out more about Dr. Heitzer in an interview in our Newsroom.

What happens after I have submitted information?

After your information has been received, the Ombudsperson checks its plausibility and passes the information on to our Compliance Officer, Dr. Christian Bühring. He checks the information and as far as possible arranges for further investigations related to the topic to be carried out.

If there is a corresponding suspicion, he may also pass the content on to an external investigative body (law enforcement agencies, for instance) and possibly to an internal department (HR department, for instance), to impose penalties on the incriminated person.

We will inform the whistle-blower through the Ombudsman about the conclusion of findings, provided this is permissible under data-protection regulations.

How will my information help the Nagel-Group?

Are you aware of any breaches of compliance or risks which could pose a threat to the Nagel-Group? Your information will help the company to uncover possible irregularities and ward off any actual losses or damage to its reputation. Your commitment will contribute to the long-term success of the Nagel-Group.

What topics can I draw attention to?

You can provide information on possible breaches of compliance or risks which relate to the areas of theft, corruption, fraud, breach of trust, offences against competition law, sabotage, destruction and breach of data protection.

Even if your information does not fall into any of the categories listed above, you can approach the Ombudsperson in confidence. This also applies to whistle-blowers who are not employed by the Nagel-Group.
