CG Whistle Blower Policy
CG believes in conducting its business in a fair and transparent manner, by adopting high standards of professionalism, integrity and ethical behaviour. Towards this end, CG has adopted the Code of Business Practices (“the Code”), which lays down the principles and standards that should govern the actions of the Company and its employees; and gives practical guidance to facilitate implementation of the Code at the workplace. An important aspect of accountability and transparency is a mechanism to enable all individuals to voice concerns internally in a responsible and effective manner when they discover information which they believe could be considered as a malpractice and/or violation of the Company’s Code of Business Practice.
CG Whistle Blower Policy ("the Policy") approved by its Board was formulated with a view to provide a mechanism for employees of CG in India (“employees”) to report violations and assures them of the process that will be followed to address the reported violation. It reinforces the trust the Company places on its employees. It provides a method of properly addressing bona fide concerns that individuals within the organization might have, while also offering whistleblowers protection to whistleblower and the rights of those complained against.
The Policy is available on the local intranet for the employees.
CG’s Global General Counsel (GGC) shall be the custodian of all the processes under this Policy.
