The group whistleblowing arrangements provide global coverage for employees and others wishing to raise concerns freely, in local languages. All our employees have the opportunity to make confidential disclosures about suspected impropriety or wrongdoing. No action or retaliation is permitted against any employee making a good faith report about an actual or suspected violation of SABMiller policy. Country or regional ethics committees, the Group Company Secretary, or the General Counsel and Corporate Affairs Director, in consultation with the Chief Internal Auditor if appropriate, decide on the method and level of investigation. The audit committee reviews the group’s whistleblowing arrangements each year to assess whether they remain effective, is notified of all material disclosures made and receives reports on the results of investigations and actions taken. The audit committee has the power to request further information, conduct its own inquiries or order additional action.
