Egis is a group built on the values of ethics, transparency, quality, respect and integrity. These values are the basis of our reputation and represent our ethical capital. Over and above respecting the applicable laws and regulations in the countries where Egis operates, the Group has defined a standardised set of rules. Upholding our values in our business practices is a constant concern.
The Egis ethics policy is based on three main documents:Find out more about egis’s ethical approach
Focus for 2016
- In 2016, two training sessions were organised in the Middle East. At the end of 2016, 437 people had been on tutor-led training, which is 81% of the target population.
- Two e-learning modules on business ethics were designed in 2017. These modules are being rolled out to all Egis employees. The first module aims to raise awareness of business ethics and present Egis’s policy in this regard, and the second explores three topics: corruption, personal integrity, and conflicts of interest.
Respect for human rights is fundamental
Respect for human rights is one of the fundamental
principles shared at all levels of the Egis Group, whose mission is to contribute to improving the living conditions and facility levels of all the regions where we work.
Egis Group companies and their employees must respect the laws and regulations applicable in all the countries where they carry out their business. Each employee must refrain from any form of behaviour which could lead that person or other employees, or his or her company or the Egis Group into illegal or unfair practices.
Over and above compliance with the applicable laws and regulations in the countries where Egis operates, the Group has defined a standardised set of rules, set out in an Ethics and Compliance Charter, available on the Corporate intranet. This charter highlights values such as integrity, loyalty, ensuring free competition, and transparency.
By committing to the 10 principles of the Global Compact in 2011, Egis wishes to ensure the advancement of these principles in its zones of influence and is committed to integrating them into its strategy, its culture, and its operating procedures.
To specify its contribution to a more sustainable economy, in September 2012 Egis published a Sustainable Development Charter. This charter aims to list the fundamental principles of the group’s work to ensure visibility in the eyes of its stakeholders, as well as to unite teams around its strategy and values. This charter is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the key conventions of the ILO, OECD guidelines, and the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.
