Reporting Breaches of the Ethical Guidelines

Nokian Tyres is committed to giving truthful information and aiming at a comprehensive and timely description of current events in its internal and external communications. The rules set for publicly listed companies are followed in all communications. Communication includes open reporting of any and all material issues related to breaches of Nokian Tyres Ethical Guidelines. Generally, these issues are reported in the annual CR reports. Depending on the materiality and public interest, these issues could be reported in annual or interim reports of Nokian Tyres, or in separate publications. In publishing this information, the materiality of the issue is considered and the rules set for publicly listed companies and legislation regarding privacy are followed at all times. Juridical reasons or reasons related to the confidentiality of ongoing investigations could cause for postponing information, whereby the information would be published when possible.

Note: Reportable issues include any and all direct violations of the ethical guidelines of Nokian Tyres, including, but not limited to, breaches related to Compliance, Crime, Corporate Ethics, Financial, Communication, Product Quality, Human Rights, Environment, Occupational Safety & Health and Personnel. If no breaches are reported, it means there are no reportable breaches at the time.
