Whistleblowers perform an essential function in the community. Protection of whistleblowers is integral to fostering transparency, promoting integrity and detecting misconduct. CSLR recognises the importance of ensuring a safe, supportive and confidential environment where people feel confident to reporting issues and are supported and protected when they do so. 

Our policy encourages employees, contractors, and stakeholders to report any concerns related to unethical behaviour, fraud, safety violations, or other misconduct. By fostering an environment where individuals feel safe to speak up, CSLR can address issues promptly and maintain our commitment to integrity.
