Procedure for Inside Information and Insider Dealing
Inside information and insider dealing procedure, approved on 25 july 2017, has been updated by resolution of the Board of Directors of 1 july 2021.
The Procedure establishes the principles and rules that INWIT follows in the internal management and in the external communication of the Company’s inside information, as defined by law, and the relevant ones, and the arrangements for keeping lists of persons having access to them. The Procedure also regulates the requirements to be fulfilled under the applicable internal dealing legislation.
“Whistleblowing” means any report that raises concerns about possible violations, unlawful or irregular conduct or behaviour, including omissions, which fail to comply with national or European Union regulations, thereby potentially harming the public interest or undermining the integrity of the Company. This also includes violations of existing rules and procedures, such as the Code of Ethics and Conduct, and the Organisation and Management Model pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree No. 231/01.
Whistleblowing reports may be sent:
- via the web portal https://inwit.segnalazioni.net/;
- in writing to the attention of the Internal Audit Director or the Head of Risk, Compliance & Corporate Security, at the address “Infrastrutture Wireless Italiane S.p.A., Largo Donegani 2 – 20121 Milan”;
- by means of a verbal communication issued to the Internal Audit Director or the Head of Risk, Compliance & Corporate Security (e.g., by private meeting or telephone call) or by using the voice messaging functionality of the Whistleblowing portal, whether anonymously or not.
The process owner for receiving and managing whistleblowing reports is the Internal Audit Department, which operates as an autonomous and organizationally independent unit. This function also coordinates the “Whistleblowing Team”, consisting of the Internal Audit Department and the RC&CS Function, as well as representatives from all other corporate functions identified from time to time, for the operational management of reports.
If reports or complaints pursuant to Article 2408 of the Italian Civil Code should be received through the aforementioned channels, the Board of Statutory Auditors will proceed in accordance with legislation in force at that time. Moreover, in the event that the Supervisory Board directly receives reports pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/01, the latter may proceed to independently handle the investigation.
On December 16, 2021, in line with the company’s ethical values, the Board of Directors approved the INWIT Anti-Corruption Policy. The purpose of the present Policy is to provide a systematic framework for the management of corruption risks, by setting forth the standards and rules of conduct by which all addressees shall abide in order to ensure compliance with the Anti-corruption Laws in relations with internal or external subjects, whether public or private.
