Hitachi Energy code of conduct

The Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct is the framework that explains the behavior Hitachi Energy expects of every employee and stakeholder around the world. It is based on Hitachi Energy’s business principles: responsibility, respect and determination.

Hitachi Energy employees and stakeholders apply these business principles to their work and actions on a daily basis. Our principles are about providing our customers affordable products and services without compromising on quality or reliability. But they are also about doing the right thing more generally – following the law, acting honorably and treating each other with respect.

The Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct provides a framework for employees and stakeholders to put business principles into practice with utmost integrity. It is the foundation so that everything we do in connection to our work at Hitachi Energy should be, and will be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethics and integrity.

Unconditional commitment

We relentlessly set our standards higher for practical as well as ambitious reasons: our unconditional commitment to integrity helps us hire the best people, who develop and provide great products and services, which in turn attracts loyal customers and business partners. Trust and mutual respect among Hitachi Energy employees and stakeholders is the core of our success, and they must be earned on a daily basis.

Employees are expected to read the Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct and use it in their day-to-day work, always keeping in mind that they each have a personal responsibility to incorporate the principles – and encourage others to incorporate the principles – into their actions. It is available in more than 40 languages to assure its accessibility to everyone at Hitachi Energy.

Employees who have questions or concerns, or who think that one of their colleagues may be falling short of our commitment to the Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct and to working with utmost integrity, are expected to speak up.

Who has to follow the Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct?

We expect all of our employees to read, acknowledge, and follow the Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action, and may lead to termination of employment with Hitachi Energy.

Additionally, we expect Hitachi Energy third parties, consultants, contractors, and anyone assigned to provide temporary work or services for Hitachi Energy, to follow the Hitachi Energy Code of Conduct in connection to their work for our company. Failure to do so may result in termination of their relationship with Hitachi Energy.

Does Hitachi Energy have a Supplier Code of Conduct?

It is imperative to Hitachi Energy that our suppliers, who we regard as our “extended enterprise,” conduct business respectfully and with a high standard of integrity, in line with the Hitachi ABB Power Grids BUsiness principles.

As such, the Hitachi Energy Supplier Code of Conduct is integrated into our day-to-day operations and is a fundamental part of our Supplier Qualification, Development and Evaluation Requirements.
