EQUANS is committed to doing business in an ethical way. To achieve this goal, we have an established code of conduct that underpins our day-to-day strategic decisions, management and professional practices.
As an ENGIE Group company, we strictly adhere to a group-wide set of core values and ethical principles:
- Acting in accordance with laws and regulations
- Establishing a culture of integrity
- Behaving fairly and honestly
- Respecting others
This includes a strong focus on the ethical behaviour of our employees and on conducting ethical relationships with our clients, suppliers and sub-contractors.
Ethics and compliance are fully embedded in the culture of our business at all levels, and our strict ethics code of conduct is championed at Board level. The Group’s strong ethical policy incorporates a zero tolerance approach.
Ethical behaviour requires both personal and team commitment. Our approach to ethics and compliance underlines what we stand for as a business and as individual employees. This includes how we choose to act in our day-to-day behaviour, in the way we do our jobs and in our business dealings with others.
