Swedfund is the Development Finance Institution of the Swedish state, investing in 30 different markets.

Find out more about how Swedfund and WhistleB cooperated in this interview with Johan Ek, Senior Legal Counsel at Swedfund:

How does your whistleblowing service strengthen your position as a responsible investor?
Swedfund invests in 30 different markets, many of which are in Africa. Swedfund’s mission is to help eradicate poverty through sustainable investments. We work continuously to combat corruption and other serious irregularities. The WhistleB whistleblowing channel is a vital tool in these efforts. The whistleblower service, which aims to protect Swedfund’s interests and the policies that guide Swedfund, is available for employees, contractors, interns and so on, and is also available at our portfolio companies. As an investor, we want to make sure that the employees working in our portfolio companies can raise a red flag securely if there is any suspicion of a serious irregularity. We encourage each portfolio company to adopt and implement their own system, but we offer our system as an interim solution.

What were the challenges when implementing the whistleblowing service, and how were they solved?
One challenge was to find a technical solution for an autonomous third party to receive and investigate reports concerning our own employees. WhistleB helped us with a technical solution customised to meet our needs.  It was also important for us to be able to customise the reporting channel, as well as the communications, to different target groups.

How has WhistleB contributed?
WhistleB has deep knowledge in the field of organisational whistleblowing, they provide a global tool, that is easy to adapt, and they have a service-minded attitude.

What are the benefits for Axfood?

It also enhances transparency in our workplaces and is perceived positively by the employees.

Why did Axfood choose WhistleB’s whistleblowing service?
The WhistleB system was chosen because it is considered to be a safe and easy-to-use external system, providing the opportunity to anonymously make a report and to communicate with an anonymous whistleblower.

How does WhistleB contribute?
WhistleB delivers a good system and is attentive to any possible development needs of the system.
