• AKPK’s Whistleblowing Policy is aimed at achieving and maintaining high standards of conduct at work, openness and accountability.
  • Employees and stakeholders, including suppliers are encouraged to report genuine concerns about any misconduct without fear of reprisals should they act in good faith.
  • Whistleblowers are encouraged to put their names to allegations because relevant follow-up enquiry and investigation may not be possible unless the source of information is identified.
  • AKPK will take all reasonable steps to protect the whistleblower against any discrimination, retaliation or harassment. Party that retaliates against someone who has reported a wrongdoing in good faith may be subject to appropriate action, up to and including legal action, where applicable.
  • If the subsequent investigation reveals that the disclosure was made with malicious intent, appropriate action will be taken against the whistleblower.
