ETHICS

HİDRO DİZAYN expects its employees to act in accordance with the Group’s ethical principles, in all circumstances, and whatever their jobs, level of responsibility and contacts.
 
A healthy working environment contributes to the successful operation of the Group and to employee well-being. The Group therefore pays great attention to quality of life at work.
Respect and trust must guide relationships between employees and dialogue with social partners.
 
Everyone, from board members to employees, has the responsibility never to act in any way which might raise the slightest doubt about the Group’s ethics.
 

HİDRO DİZAYN directors and managers are the primary promoters of the Group’s Ethics charter and its everyday application among employees and stakeholders.

When using of sanctions in case of infringement of ethical and legal obligations, it is done in accordance with local law and practice.

The Group promotes these principles among all of its stakeholders.

Regarding customers, the Group pays utmost attention to their satisfaction, based on quality products and services, an open dialogue, procedural transparency, honoring commitments and respecting rules of competition.

In their dealing with all stakeholders in the market, ENGIE’s employees behave loyally, and show fairness and impartiality in negotiations. They ensure that the ethical concerns of partners, suppliers, service providers and subcontractors are compatible with those of the Group.

The Group applies its ethical principles wherever it is present. It conducts its business in accordance with internationally recognised human rights.
 

PRINCIPLE 1

Act in accordance with laws and regulations
 
In all circumstances, all Group employees must observe international, federal, national and local regulations, as well as rules of professional ethics for their activities, and the Group’s ethics and compliance policies.
 
Regarding these specific rules, as they shape the Group’s identity, all entities must respect them in substance, subject to the binding provisions of relevant laws and local customs.
 

PRINCIPLE 2

Behave honestly and promote a culture of integrity
 
Honesty and integrity must govern both business and interpersonal relationships, and everyday professional practices. It is essential for every individual to act in an upright manner in all circumstances, and promote a culture of honesty and integrity. Based on this principle, the Group attaches the utmost importance to exemplary behaviour from its employees. In choosing its partners, ENGIE is careful to maintain high requirements regarding honesty and respect for human rights.

As a consequence, ENGIE encourages reporting of ethical incidents, and no employee may be sanctioned neither for using a reporting measure for these incidents, selflessly and in good faith, nor for refusing to carry out an act which they believe goes against the Group’s ethical principles.

PRINCIPLE 3

Be loyal
 
For the Group, the quality of a relationship relies on the loyalty of the parties, particularly in the execution of contracts. In particular, this requires that we honour the commitments made and that we do not make any commitment that the Group cannot keep.
 
Every time one of the Group’s employees communicates with their contacts, they do so in good faith, in a constructive spirit, in respect of everyone’s interests, and caring about providing sincere information.
 
The principle of transparency, which guides a large company like ENGIE, does not prevent employees respecting business secrecy, within the framework of the applicable laws.
 
ENGIE, which expects its employees to respect the principles laid out in the present Charter, offers in return the necessary protection
when they are challenged or jeopardised, provided that they have acted in good faith in the course of their duties.
 

PRINCIPLE 4

Respect others
 
Convinced that a sustainable company is a company that unites economic development and human progress, ENGIE attaches the utmost importance to the values of tolerance and respect for others, to which all employees must adhere in the course of their professional activities, and which govern every ENGIE entity’s relationship with them.
 
Respect for others implies treating everyone fairly, by giving equal importance to everyone. It requires reciprocity: everyone has rights they can exercise, but also duties to fulfil, towards others, their entity, the Group and society as a whole.
 
In particular, this principle covers respecting, in all circumstances, the rights of persons, their dignity and their singularity, and respecting different cultures. It also applies to material and immaterial goods belonging to others, and more generally to the preservation of heritage and the environment.
 
It guides the Group’s policy for gender equality, respect for private life, promoting diversity and fighting all forms of discrimination, protecting health and safety at work, and in particular preventing and sanctioning all situations of harassment.
 
It underlies all of ENGIE’s internal and external policies, and must even inspire the mode of conflict resolution.
 
Tolerance, which is manifested in kindness and openness to others, rules out any form of extremist behaviour.
