“The anonymous whistleblowing channel is a vital component in our goal of having an open dialogue at Cramo. Technically, the WhistleB service has worked well. Half of the reports have resulted in a dialogue between us and the anonymous whistleblower, which has been important to the satisfactory outcome of our investigations.”
– Anders Collman, Sustainability Director at Cramo.
“Our requirements for our whistleblowing solution included 100% anonymity, very easy administration, no IT development or maintenance and a competitive price. “
– Lars-Göran Älgevik, Head of Group Internal Audit, Carnegie.
“WhistleB is an easy-to-use system, with relevant features that facilitate the monitoring of reported cases. It is easy to stay in touch with the whistleblower who remains completely anonymous, and we are notified by e-mail as soon as a new report or a follow-up answer is received. With the professional guidance of the WhistleB team the system was very easy to implement.”

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.
