Compliance and Whistleblowing

Principal Elements of the Compliance Management System

The operation of the company is based on compliance with rules, legislation and internal rules. The business compliance system is an instrument for preventing violations and damage to the society.

For us, compliance does not end with the adherence to legal provisions, we strive to always act in accordance with ethical principles, while at the same time minimizing the liability risk for the company, its employees and supervisory bodies through organizational and preventive measures.

In everyday practice, our company culture is manifested through working with integrity in the workplace and honest cooperation with employees, customers, suppliers, owners, the local community and the public. We also expect our business partners to act legally and with the principles of integrity.

The Compliance Management System has been implemented at Fraport AG majority-owned national and international subsidiaries over the last years, including Fraport Slovenija.

This Group-wide system provides methods, rules, instruments, and an organization so that compliance is implemented as a comprehensive task at all levels and in all relevant processes.

Fraport Slovenija provides communication channels for reporting compliance violations. These channels are open to everyone – employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, and third parties.

At Fraport Slovenija, special protection is given to whistleblowers who pass on information in good faith in order to expose irregularities. They are protected by maximum confidentiality and, whenever possible, the assurance of anonymity. Whistleblowers who have sufficient reason to believe that their information is true are protected against reprisals by Fraport Slovenija.

Compliance violations include, among others:

  • Corruption
  • Fraud/embezzlement/theft (property crimes)
  • Inappropriate behavior in receiving and handing out gifts, benefits and invitations
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Breach of personal data protection
  • Violation of human rights
  • Environmental crimes and risks
  • Providing confidential business information to unauthorized third parties
  • Violation of legal regulations.

Electronic Whistleblower System  

Reports of violations can be submitted online via the electronic whistleblower system (the BKMS® system).

The whistleblower system is accessible 24/7 and available in German, English, Greek, Bulgarian, and Portuguese. The certified BKMS® system absolutely guarantees anonymity for whistleblowers.

It is accessed via the Fraport AG website and the respective websites of Fraport's subsidiaries.

External Reporting Channels

All persons who intend to report a violation or misconduct in connection with Fraport Slovenija also have the option of submitting an external report to the responsible state or European Union authorities. Whistleblowers who take this way also fall under the protection of the Slovenian Whistleblower Protection Act.

The Code of Conduct for Employees provides an overview on the fundamental orientation that our company is based on, and on the values Fraport stands for.

According to our Company values - trust, reliability, openness, courage, commitment and competence - we endeavour to act in a socially and economically responsible way. In order to do justice to this responsibility, it is indispensable to implement the Company's values also in everyday working life.

The Code of Conduct for Business Partners stipulates rules for all suppliers and service providers that are in a direct business relationship with Fraport Slovenija. In a similar manner to the Code of conduct for employees, it encompasses compliance, conventions on labour as well as human rights, supplemented by environmental and climate protection aspects. Any compliance breach will be considered an infringement of the contract and our suppliers will be notified of it if need be, together with a deadline to remedy the breach. If escalating, this may result in a termination of the contract.

The Compliance Risk Analysis (CRA) is an essential instrument to identify compliance risks. Since 2015, CRA has been carried out regularly within the Fraport Group, also in Fraport Slovenija. By means of systematically identifying and evaluating risks, CRA thus serves as a basis for appropriate compliance measures.

The new German Act on Due Diligence in Supply Chains (LkSG) came into force on January 1, 2023 with purpose to improve the protection of human rights in global supply chains.  The Act initially applies to companies with at least 3,000 employees and a head office, administrative center, registered office or branch office in Germany – which includes Fraport Slovenija as subsidiary of Fraport AG. The due diligence obligations relate to the company’s own business operations, the actions of a contracting party and, on an ad hoc basis, the actions of further indirect suppliers.

Policy Statement on Human Rights and Environmental Risks

The policy statement sets out Fraport AG’s expectations of its own employees and suppliers regarding the respect of human rights in supply chains. In the future, the policy statement will be reviewed annually and on an ad hoc basis, and updated as required. The environmental and human rights risks identified in the risk analysis as the highest priorities are mentioned in the document, and related preventive and corrective measures are described.
