Evolution of the group whistleblowing system
The “Sapin II” law no 2016-1691 of 9 December 2016 on transparency, anti-corruption and economic modernisation and law “Duty of vigilance” no 2017-399 of 27 March 2017 on the duty of vigilance of parent companies and principal companies require companies meeting the thresholds set by law, the implementation of a system for collecting and processing reports.
The SAPIN law defines in particular the different themes of admissible reports and the associated procedural conditions. It devotes a whistleblower protection regime.
In order to comply with these requirements, EDF is changing its current ethics and compliance whistleblowing system.
The “new” whistleblowing system will be made available to any internal employee or external employee (temporary staff, employees of a service provider...) or casual employee (fixed-term contract workers, apprentices, interns...) from the EDF and its subsidiaries group, - excluding subsidiaries managing of regulated energy transport or distribution infrastructures (in particular, ENEDIS and RTE) - as well as third parties, in France and abroad, from September 2018 onwards. In the meantime, the current whistleblowing system may always be used by completing the form below.
The referent of the EDF Group's ethics alert and compliance system, appointed by the Executive Committee, is the Group Ethics & Compliance Division (in French, Direction Éthique & Conformité Groupe, aka DECG).
Who is this current system for?
This whistleblowing system is available to EDF Group's employees or employees of an external contractor working casually at EDF Group (excluding subsidiaries managing of regulated energy transport or distribution infrastructures).
If you are a customer, please contact your sales office for any question regarding your electricity and / or gas contract.
If you are a supplier, please visit our suppliers dedicated section.
When to use it?
Any Group employee as well as any employee of an external contractor working casually at EDF Group can alert any member from the management line, the Ethics & Compliance Officer or the executive director of his/her entity, should he/she meet a situation that is contrary to the principles and rules from the Group Code of Ethics and the Ethics and Compliance Code of conduct.
If, given the situation, it appears inappropriate to report the matter to the Ethics & Compliance Officer or to an executive director, you can, in confidence and without any risk, directly report it to the Group Ethics & Compliance Division (DECG) using the form available below.
The legitimate rights and interests of the whistleblower, along with those who may be involved, are protected according to the applicable legal conditions.
The whistleblower must have had personal knowledge of the facts, be disinterested and in good faith.
« The informations recorded by the Group Ethics and Compliance Division are subject to processing, the purpose of which is the collection and the processing of alerts in the mentioned topics. In accordance with the French law "Informatique et libertés" as amended on January 6, 1978 and the European Regulation n°2016/679 of 27 april 2016 “on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data” (EU GDPR) , you have the right to access and rectify any information related to you by contacting: EDF - Group Ethics & Compliance Director – Strictly confidential – B32A55 - 20 place de la Défense – 92050 Paris La Défense »
