Committed to Ethical Principles
In the course of their activities, all employees at every level within the E.ON Group must comply with the clear rules laid down in our Code of Conduct. Derived from our core values, the Code of Conduct defines key principles and rules for legitimate and responsible conduct, especially when dealing with business partners and public officials.
High Standards Underpinning Our Conduct
Every single one of our employees, particularly those with managerial responsibility, is called on to comply fully and at all times with our Code of Conduct for all processes, decisions and everyday activities. This also applies to meeting the extended Compliance requirements and applicable policies and standards. It is valid for E.ON companies.
Continually Reviewing and Improving our Code of Conduct
The implementation of and adherence to the Code is one of the major responsibilities of the Group's Compliance organization. In 2009, it undertook a thorough revision of our Code of Conduct to produce an updated version, which has been in force since January 2010. It is supplemented by guidelines containing detailed provisions and instructions on how to deal with specific situations. Our employees can refer to these at any time.
