The TEXA Group offers multiple avenues for individuals who, in good faith, wish to report conduct or events that may potentially violate (national or European Union) laws or regulations, company procedures, or act in a manner inconsistent with ethical standards. Reports must be made to protect the public interest and the integrity of the Group.
Reports can be made through the following channels:

- Standard mail by writing to TEXA S.p.A. – Ethics Committee, Via I Maggio, 9 CAP 31050 Monastier di Treviso (TV).
- Upon the reporting person’s request, a face-to-face meeting with the Ethics Committee can be arranged within a reasonable timeframe.
Reports can be submitted by individuals, whether internal or external to the organisation, both in Italy and internationally.
