Whistleblower system


Complying with statutory regulations, internal rules, and the principles laid down in our Ethic Code and the Code of Conduct for Business Partners has top priority at Lamborghini.

The success of our company is based on Integrity and Compliance. To meet these standards, it is important to learn of potential employee or supplier misconduct and to put a stop to it. Therefore, Audi Investigation Office operates an independent, impartial and confidential Whistleblower System on our behalf.

A key pillar of our Whistleblower System is the principle of procedural fairness. It also guarantees the greatest possible protection for whistleblowers, persons implicated and employees contributing to the investigation of reported misconduct. This also includes offering opportunities for anonymous reporting and communication, and anonymity, for those who do not misuse our Whistleblower System, is always guaranteed. We take all necessary measures to prevent retaliation of whistleblowers and all persons who contribute to investigations at Lamborghini. Persons implicated are presumed innocent until the violation is proven. Investigations will be conducted with the utmost confidentiality. The information will be processed in a fair, fast and protected process. 


The qualified and experienced colleagues at the Audi Investigation Office examine every report for potential misconduct by a Volkswagen Group employee thoroughly and follow it up systematically.  First, a confirmation of receipt will be sent. The Audi Investigation Office then assesses the report. This includes gathering facts particularly from the whistleblower. Only if this initial evaluation shows grounds for suspicion of a violation, an investigation by a dedicated Investigating Unit will be started. Afterwards, the results of the investigation will be assessed by the Audi Investigation Office and appropriate measures will be recommended. Information about the status* and the outcome of the procedure will be given to you without undue delay. Potential violations of the Code of Conduct for Business Partners by suppliers, including serious risks and violations of human rights and environment by direct and indirect suppliers, can also be reported to the Audi Investigation Office -  as well as reports requiring otherwise immediate actions. The Audi Investigation Office will inform the responsible departments, who will process the issue accordingly. This particularly includes taking the necessary measures to minimize or end violations and/or risks.

* The processing time varies depending on the subject of the procedure (Find more information on the procedural principles of the Audi Group Complaints Procedure here: Rulesofprocedure_Verfahrensordnung_final.pdf )


The Whistleblower System offers various channels to report potential employee misconduct that allow a swift review and reaction by our company if necessary.  


Questions or suggestions for improvement concerning the Whistleblower System can also be addressed to the Investigation Office. If you have been interviewed in terms of an investigation, you have the possibility to give feedback to the Ombudspersons as independent counterpart. 

Furthermore, our local Compliance Officer can also be addressed in all matters of the Whistleblower System via

Abiding by the European Directive 2019/1937, the Italian Legislator issued the Legislative Decree no. 24 of March 10, 2023 on «the protection of persons who report violations of Union law and laying down provisions concerning the protection of persons who report violations of national regulatory provisions» that has identified in the Italian Anticorruption Authority (ANAC) the entity in charge of the management of the external channel for reporting on potential violations of the Union and Nation Laws.

Therefore, whistleblowers can use the ANAC reporting channel only when:

  • there is no provision within the work context for the mandatory activation of the internal reporting channel or this channel, even if mandatory, is not active or, even if activated, does not comply with what is required by law. 
  • the reporting person has already made an internal report and it has not been followed up.
  • the reporting person has well-founded reason to believe that, if he or she made an internal report, the report would not be effectively followed up or that the same report could result in a risk of retaliation.
  • the reporting person has reasonable grounds to believe that the violation may pose an imminent or obvious danger to the public interest.
