The DB Group aims to act in an ethical manner in all business transactions and in compliance with statutory provisions.

However, it is possible for situations to occur in which information about suspected white collar crime needs to be reported. The goal of DB Group’s whistleblowing management is to protect the company from damage resulting from corruption, restrictive practices and fraud.

DB Group therefore offers various channels for employees, business partners and customers to submit reports about suspected infringements. These are presented below.

Reports are treated with strict confidentiality as well as anonymously on request.

By telephone

You have the option of calling DB Group's whistleblowing management telephone number:

Phone: +49 (0) 30 297 62710

Electronic whistleblowing system (BKMS)

The "BKMS" tool (Business Keeper Monitoring System) offers anonymous, web-based access for reporting tip-offs. It is available in seven languages (German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Russian).
