BENETTON GROUP’S WHISTLEBLOWING PROCEDURE
Management of whistleblowing reports
In compliance with the provisions of Directive (EU) 2019/1937 and the relevant transposition laws, the company’s Organization, Management and Control Model pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree n. 231 of 2001 and the internal Anti-Corruption Procedure, Benetton Group S.r.l. ensures the receipt, management, analysis and treatment of whistleblowing reports, including anonymous ones, received by Benetton Group S.r.l. (including branches) and its subsidiaries, in Italy and abroad.
Who can submit reports?
The reports can be sent by subjects internal or external to the organization, who operate in Italy and abroad, such as employees, collaborators, self-employed workers, trainees, consultants, suppliers, shareholders or persons with administrative or control functions of the Benetton Group companies, such as Directors or members of the Boards of Statutory Auditors.
Maximum confidentiality is guaranteed for the subjects and the facts reported, as well as for the identity of the whistleblowers, which cannot be revealed to anyone other than those authorized to receive or follow up on the reports, so that whoever makes the report is not subject to any form of discrimination or retaliation.
Among the most significant retaliatory conduct, contemplated and prohibited by the present procedure, we report:
- Failure to promote or demotion;
- Relocation of working place or change of working hours;
- Reduction of remuneration;
- Adoption of disciplinary measures or other sanctions;
- Early termination of the employment relationship;
- Discrimination and harassment;
- Termination of a supply contract for goods/services.
What can be reported?
The whistleblower reports, which must be as detailed as possible, may concern unlawful conduct, acts or omissions that harm the public interest or the integrity of the company of which the reporting person became aware in the working context, such as for example the commission of a corruption act or violation of occupational health and safety or environmental regulations.
We do not consider whistleblowing reports, and therefore will not be taken into consideration:
- Disputes, claims or personal requests relating to one's employment relationship (to be sent to the appropriate Human Resources Personnel functions);
- Complaints relating to alleged qualitative defects of Benetton products or disservices in the services rendered by the companies of the Benetton Group, including the e-commerce channel (to be sent to the dedicated corporate functions or through https://it.benetton.com/contactus).
Who is the reporting manager?
The report is managed by the Head of Internal Audit of Benetton Group S.r.l..
As regards the relevant reports for the purposes of Legislative Decree 231/2001, Internal Audit communicates the reports to the Supervisory Board of the competent company.
The results of the verification activity carried out on the cases reported are submitted to the attention of the Control, Risk and Sustainability Committee.

Without prejudice to the preferential use of the reporting channels made available by Benetton Group S.r.l., in the cases strictly indicated pursuant to art. 6 of Legislative Decree 24 of 10 March 2023, it is also possible to report to the competent authority on the matter (ANAC).
The information and personal data that are communicated in the context of reports are processed to manage and follow up on the reports themselves, as well as investigate any reported conduct and take the necessary measures in accordance with applicable laws, including data protection legislation personal.
