Ethics & Compliance policy
The EDF Group Ethics & Compliance Policy, adopted in May 2016, sets out the rules which executive directors must be familiar and comply with, and which they must ensure compliance with in their entities.
It addresses the following areas: corruption, financial ethics, competition law, conflicts of interest, security of personal data, fraud, harassment and discrimination, industry regulations and international sanctions.
The Group Ethics & Compliance Division develops preventive actions and training and provides deployment tools for all employees. It leads a network of Chief Ethics & Compliance Officers in Group entities and companies.
The Group Ethics & Compliance Policy requires of executive directors to set up a system for preventing and combating corruption (Article 2 of the PECG) within their entities.
To support the implementation of the latter, a training program "Prevention of Corruption" - meeting the requirements of supervisory authorities - has been specifically developed for executive directors and managers from mid-2016 onwards. The training program is validated by a UN-recognized certificate.
