In order to maintain the highest quality standards of its services and to ensure our procurement activity be conducted according to our philosophy and ethics, Bridgestone Europe has introduced Supplier’s Whistleblowing System. Supplier’s Whistleblowing, along with any other normal method of alarm, is a system at the disposal of our suppliers to encourage them to inform the company of dysfunctional behaviors they consider contrary to applicable laws, rules and regulations, and to organize the verification of the alarm raised within the organization concerned.
Bridgestone Europe has dedicated communication channel for whistleblowing and ensure that the whistleblowing complaints are processed in as objective efficient and effective manner as possible.
The supplier can communicate directly with our internal investigation officer through following email address:
This channel is intended to favor the Whistleblowers, but suppliers can use also another method at their own discretion.
The investigation officer is subject to independency, confidentiality and avoidance of incompatibility with other company functions.
The identity of the Whistleblower shall be kept confidential and shall be disclose only in case of legal proceedings started as consequence of the whistleblowing, Bridgestone Invites not to report anonymously, because anonymity could make more difficult investigate the case.
