ArborOne Farm Credit is committed to high standards of ethical, moral and legal business operations and having the confidence of its employees, shareholders, FCA, contractors and other relevant parties in this commitment. As such, we provide a confidential, anonymous reporting system as an alternate channel of communication for reporting suspected or actual wrongdoing, concerns and feedback. An independent, external party receives and processes the reports to ensure objectivity and anonymity.
Information may be reported through arborone.ethicspoint.com or the hotline (833-220-9745), including concerns related to:
- Accounting & Finance
- Claims & Benefits
- Conflict of Interest
- Corporate waste
- Safety and Security
Once a report is submitted, a case number is assigned to provide a way for the reporter to check the status of their report and to be contacted anonymously for additional information, if needed.
Those using the reporting system are expected to make reports in good faith. ArborOne Farm Credit strictly prohibits discrimination, retaliation or harassment against any individual who, in good faith, reports or who participates in an investigation of wrongdoing, concerns, or feedback.
