Hitachi Energy code of conduct

Hitachi Energy code of conduct

Integrity, together with Safety and Quality, constitutes our license to operate. Integrity is the foundation of our business practices and interactions, and to build and strengthen the desired Integrity mindset we are focusing on introducing essential tools in the organization. Our Code of Conduct outlines the standards of business conduct we expect from everyone. It describes how we work and behave internally and sets the expectations for our dealings with our partners and customers. 

The Code contains five personal integrity commitments that apply to all your business activities. It also includes regulation guidance in specific compliance and integrity core areas that you might encounter from time to time in performing your job responsibilities. It also provides contacts, web links, and other references (HILDI)  to help with questions, additional information and guidance on how to raise concerns.

The updated Code of Conduct, which applies to everyone in the company everywhere, is a clear reminder of our constant pledge to be accountable and to act with unyielding integrity at all times. We encourage you to read this updated Code and share our guidance with suppliers and business partners on how we conduct business in an ethical manner worldwide at all times.

Dominique Abrokwa, Head of Integrity
