To qualify for protection under the law, you must make a disclosure of Reportable Conduct to an eligible recipient, who are described in this section.
You may disclose any Reportable Conduct to a “Whistleblower" protection officer as listed below:
If you are unable to use any of the above reporting channels, or feel uncomfortable doing so, you can disclose to any member of the Senior Leadership Team, the Group CEO or Group CFO.
If you do not feel comfortable making an internal report, then you can contact the Chair of the Audit Committee of the Board, Mr Chris Day or any other Board member.
You may also report any Reportable Conduct to our auditors, an external lawyer or to any regulator such as the Financial Markets Authority in New Zealand, or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) in Australia. This policy will also apply to those disclosures.
In certain circumstances, you may make a public interest or emergency disclosure to journalists and members of parliament for Reportable Conduct (but in Australia only). This process is set out in Appendix 1.
If you wish to obtain additional information before making a disclosure, please contact one of our Whistleblower protection officers or the chair of the audit committee.
