As part of our approach to ethics and in line with our regulatory obligations, our parent company, Lagardère, has set up a group-wide whistleblowing system – the online “Ethics Line” – that can be used by all and accessed from anywhere.
Ethics Line allows anyone to raise an alert about behaviour they observe in connection with Hachette UK’s activities that breaches business ethical standards. Ethics Line is available online at the following address: http://ethicsline.lagardere.com/
The Code of Ethics fosters Ethics Line as a confidential platform for reporting suspected unlawful, unethical activities or behaviour within the Lagardère group.
By putting social, environmental and ethical considerations at the heart of our strategy, the Lagardère group hopes to contribute to creating corporate value as part of a sustainable and inclusive growth dynamic.
