Truly listening to learn first-hand what is happening around us is one of our bank's core values. On Canal Abierto, anyone associated with Grupo Santander can confidentially and anonymously -if they wish to do so- report breaches of legal or internal regulations, financial and accounting irregularities, possible breaches of our General Code of Conduct, as well as breaches of our corporate behaviour or of the Internal Governance system, without the person reporting such breaches through Canal Abierto being subject to reprisals, among other guarantees and rights of the reporter that are included in the Policy and Procedure that regulates said Channel.
Santander promotes an open and honest culture, so everyone can feel free to speak up. Our aim is to make sure that everything we do is Simple, Personal and Fair, guided by local law and regulation as well as by our internal rules.
To ensure that is the case we have Canal Abierto, a channel where anyone linked to Grupo Santander in Spain can confidentially and anonymously -if they wish to do so- report breaches of legal or internal regulations, financial and accounting irregularities of potential significance, according to the law in the countries where we operate. Canal Abierto also helps expose violations of regulation and internal governance.
Got something to report?
Canal Abierto is a multilingual telephone and Internet platform that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The reception of the reports is managed outside the bank to ensure confidentiality and anonymity, where appropriate.
An easy to access and user-friendly tool, Canal Abierto is essential to our Group policy on transparency. It furthers our cultural transformation into an open and honest bank where everyone can speak up and be heard.
Canal Abierto shows the importance of upholding the law and promoting a culture of ethics, honesty and responsibility in all we do. Speak up about unethical, irresponsible and unfair conduct at our bank. #yourconductmatters
Canal Abierto does not act as a communication channel for investors, nor it is the appropriate tool for making contractual or commercial claims by vendors. Nor does it have the functionality of Customer Service to deal with customer complaints. For all of this, we have several specialised channels available depending on each person's needs: click here for our special channels: investor relations, shareholder relations, vendor relations and customer service.
