- Code of Ethics
“Ethical rules and values guarantee our future”
Our core values - Trust, Team and Action - ensure Alstom’s overall cohesion, inspire trust among our partners, reinforce our image and, quite simply, guarantee our future. Alstom’s reputation and integrity can only be built by continuously strengthening ethical rules and procedures. Our growth is underpinned and guided by our fundamental principles of integrity and transparency, applied scrupulously and without exception with regard to employees, shareholders, customers in the public and private sectors, suppliers, competitors and partners. Our Code of Ethics is essential and all employees, in their day-to-day work, need to share the same clear values and observe the same rules of personal and collective conduct that define Alstom as an ethical company.
Through the Alstom Integrity Programme, I constantly strive to strengthen this approach and ensure that our values and rules are strictly applied, without exception. Since March 2009, the Group has been engaged in a certification process to assess that its rules and their implementation are in line with the highest international business standards.
All our ethical rules are important. However, three rules, covering competition, corruption and internal control, deserve special attention, as they are central to our individual and collective responsibilities. To ensure nothing is overlooked, any employee who has reason to believe that our Code of Ethics is being violated can immediately report the matter to his or her direct manager or use Alstom’s Alert Procedure, in accordance with the relevant national laws and rules.
