13. Reporting requirement and company response

As an employee of Stora Enso, you are requested to report concerns about potential violations of the Stora Enso Code or This Policy promptly.

If you see or suspect misconduct:

  • Make a report immediately or as soon as practicable. To make a report, we encourage you to speak directly to your own supervisor, Human Resources or Legal, Ethics and Compliance.

Speak Up Hotline

If this is not possible, you may alternatively report certain concerns, particular on topics such as suspicions of bribery or financial wrongdoing through Stora Enso’s confidentiality reporting line “Speak Up Hotline“. “Speak Up Hotline” can be contacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For more information on this service see: https://www.storaenso.com/en/sustainability/code-of-conduct

Zero tolerance on retaliation

If you voice a concern or report misconduct in good faith – or participate in the investigation of a report of suspected misconduct – you are following our Stora Enso Code and This Policy. Under no circumstances will Stora Enso tolerate retaliation against you. Any person who engages in retaliation is subject to disciplinary action by Stora Enso, including termination of employment.

Questions about policies

If you have any questions about This Policy and related policies and guidelines:

  • Contact your own supervisor first, or
  • Send your questions to code@storaenso.com
    (please note that this email should only be used for asking questions, not reporting misconduct or suspicions of misconduct.)
  • You can also send questions to Legal, Ethics and Compliance.
