The Ethical and Good Governance Mailbox is a pioneering tool in Europe in the prevention of bad practice and the fight against fraud and corruption. It offers a secure means of two-way communication, guaranteeing confidentiality and anonymity for people denouncing bad practice and ensuring they do not suffer any sort of reprisals.

Created in collaboration with the citizen platform Xnet, the mailbox is based on a safe encrypted network and open-source software, the aim being to make it easy for other institutions to implement.

The tool has already been applied in the anti-fraud offices for Catalonia and Valencia, and is also to be implemented by the Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB), the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) and the municipal councils of Lleida, Terrassa and Mollet.

The Ethical and Good Governance Mailbox is part of the framework for institutional integrity, as is the Ethics and Conduct Code approved in 2018 and the Ethics Committee. It is a step towards meeting sustainable development goal 16 of the 2030 Agenda, on the need for responsible and transparent institutions.
