Kretam Holdings Berhad and its Group of Companies ("Kretam") are committed to observing a high level of professionalism and integrity in running its business, and to this end, a Code of Ethics & Conduct has been drawn up to set out what is expected of employees of Kretam.



In addition to the Code of Ethics & Conduct and any other company regulations applicable to employees, a whistleblowing channel is being provided to act as a deterrent to any employee from engaging in misconduct and/or unethical behavior.


Kretam’s Whistleblowing Policy and Procedure for Whistleblowing became effective on 1 June 2020. The purpose of these are to;


  1. provide a channel for employees of Kretam and members of the general public to report any misconduct and/or unethical behavior committed by employees of Kretam that they become aware of;
  2. provide guidance on making such reports;
  3. explain the protection that is available to any person making such a report; and
  4. establish the procedures for handling and managing reports of misconduct and/or unethical behavior.


Please note that Kretam’s Whistleblowing Policy does not cover acts or incidents of bribery and corruption: these are covered by the Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy instead, and further information on this may be found in the Anti-Corruption section of our website.




If you become aware of any incident of misconduct and/or unethical behaviour (excluding acts or incidents of bribery and corruption) involving any employee of Kretam and:


  1. if you are an employee of Kretam, you are required to report such incident;
  2. if you are not an employee of Kretam, we encourage you to report the incident.


If the incident that you are reporting involves bribery and corruption, please follow the steps outlined in the Anti-Corruption section of our website instead of this section.
