Endesa would like its employees and stakeholders in general to alert about any potential compliance violation, and to do so it provides them a whistleblower channel (Ethics box), through which anybody can report a concern confidentially or anonymously.
The channel is administered by an external third-party provider, which fully guarantees confidentiality.
However, reporting untrue or false facts or claims being aware of doing so, would lead to disciplinary actions and criminal or civil penalties according to the law.
