As it is a performance driver and a reflection of the company’s values, ENGIE has decided to place ethics at the core of its strategy, management and the professional practices of its employees.
To make ethics a part of everyday strategies, management styles, and professional practices, the Group has adopted compliance policies and procedures to manage and control them.
Our ethical principles
ENGIE’s ethics and compliance policy is rooted in four principles:
- Act in accordance with laws and regulations
In every circumstance, Group employees and entities must observe international, federal, national and local law, as well as business ethics rules pertaining to their activities.
- Behave honestly and promote a culture of integrity
Honesty and integrity must govern both business and interpersonal relationships, and everyday professional practices. As a consequence, ENGIE encourages reporting of ethical incidents. No employee may be sanctioned for using a reporting measure for these incidents, selflessly, in good faith, made without malice and in accordance with the conditions set out by the law and with ENGIE's whistleblowing policy.
- Be loyal
Commitments must be kept ; communications are done in good faith, and with a spirit of providing sincere information.
- Respect others
ENGIE attaches the utmost importance to tolerance, respect for the rights of persons, their dignity and their singularity, and to respecting different cultures.
These four principles apply in every circumstance to:
- all Group employees, entities and subsidiaries in their daily business activities
- relationships with customers and stakeholders (e.g. service providers, partners, investors, non-governmental organisations)
- the society in which the Group operates (communities, municipalities, environment)
