In practice, these four fundamental principles apply to the three circles in which SUEZ operates:
The Board of Directors' Ethics and Sustainable Development Committee is tasked with monitoring the ethics policy and guaranteeing employees' respect of the individual and collective values underlying our actions.
The ethics policy is coordinated by the General Secretary, who is the group's ethics officer. To make sure this policy is implemented, we have a network of about 30 ethics officers whose role is to implement the policy within their entity and ensure that ethics-related questions and alerts are properly handled.
Continuing the efforts the Group makes every year to increase its contribution to the common good and support its companies in their development momentum and transformation, SUEZ devoted itself in 2017 to preparing a vigilance plan to control its impact on local areas.
