Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains (LkSG)
The LkSG obliges companies with a workforce of 3,000 employees or more to set up a complaints procedure from 01 January 2023 to receive complaints regarding possible human rights and environmental violations along their own supply chain or in their own business area.
NORD/LB supports the aim of the LkSG and has therefore set up the possibility of submitting a complaint.
In order to be able to respond to you and process your complaint in the best possible way, we need the following information:
- Your name and contact information (e-mail address) including country of residence.
- Which action by NORD/LB or one of its suppliers is related to your reasons for complaint?
- Explain to us in as much detail as possible the adverse effects or risks and how you are affected by them. Please attach any documentation you consider relevant to the complaint.

All information you provide will be treated confidentially.

As an external reporting office, there is also the whistleblower page of BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority). However, we would like to ask you to first give us the opportunity to investigate a possible error. Thank you.
Our whistleblower system complies with the requirements of the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) (in german only). The Act protects reporting persons who have obtained information about violations in connection with their professional activities or in the run-up to professional activities and submit these to the reporting offices offered here. It also protects persons who are the subject of a report or disclosure, as well as other persons who are affected by a report or disclosure. In this regard, the protection refers to reprisals (acts or omissions in connection with professional activity) which are a reaction to a report or disclosure and as a result of which the person making the reference suffers or may suffer an unjustified disadvantage.
We would like to point out that the sole purpose of this whistleblower system is to draw attention to suspected white-collar criminal acts as well as violations of the law and breaches of regulatory or internal requirements (in the NORD/LB Group). Misuse for other purposes may constitute an administrative offense, which may be accompanied by fines (see §§ 9, 32, 38 and 40 HinSchG).
