Our core belief at Tractebel?  Without ethics, there is no future for our company. To be a reliable and responsible partner, that's what we are committed to. Every Tractebel employee is trained on ethically acceptable behaviour as defined in our Ethics Charter, Practical Guide to Ethics and Policies.

Our 4 commitments

Tractebel bases its ethics and compliance policy on four simple and specific action principles:

  1. To act in accordance with laws and regulations 
    Our employees must in all circumstances observe international, federal, national and local laws and the professional codes of practice applicable to their activities.

  2. To establish a culture of integrity 
    Integrity is about avoiding any conflict between personal interests and the company’s interests. It underpins an absolute belief in our obligation to respect certain values. It thereby creates a climate of trust and acts as a shield against corrupt practices.

  3. To behave fairly and honestly 
    Employees fulfil their undertakings and engagements scrupulously. Whenever they communicate, within the company or externally, they do so in good faith and in a constructive spirit, with a concern for providing genuine, accurate and complete information.

  4. To respect others 
    This principle particularly applies to the respect for the rights of individuals, for their dignity and their differences, as well as respect for different cultures. It also applies to tangible and intangible goods that belong to others.

Our Charter and guidelines

At Tractebel, we make every effort to act everywhere and at all times in accordance with all regulations in force and according to the rules and guiding principles set out in our Ethics Charter, and our Practical Guide to Ethics and Policies. The Ethics Charter defines the ENGIE Group’s ethics principles and its ethics governance system. The Practical Guide to Ethics describes the way in which ethics standards are to be applied in day-to-day work situations.
