ESG vs Whistleblower Protection

In many companies around the world, when someone is hired, the Code of Ethics is introduced to the new employee, who is informed that the code is the main instrument of the company’s governance and the guideline to all the corporate actions. However, when reporting any nonconformity to the Code of Ethics, or deviations of conduct of colleagues or superiors, the Whistleblower is fired, has their professional career destroyed and their reputation buried.

For a company to be ethical and fulfill all the premises of the ESG, it is necessary to protect the Whistleblowers and influence other companies to do the same.

Otherwise, the Code of Ethics won’t serve any purpose and the company will only have a nice ethical speech!
