ETHICS

A priority area for Bouygues Construction for over ten years has been issues of ethics and compliance with standards. These are part and parcel of the trust that we inspire in our customers, our co-workers, our investors and our shareholders as well as in all of our partners. This trust is won through the adoption of rules of conduct that are set out in the Practical guide to the implementation of the ethics code and compliance programmes that apply wherever we operate.

These ethics rules are enshrined at the highest level of the business. They call upon every manager and co-worker to abide by a professional ethics code set out in the form of ‘principles of action’ that must be a guide to the manager or co-worker’s behaviour under all circumstances, and in every country

“As a business involved in buildings and public works with a presence in over 60 countries where practices in business can vary greatly, the implementation of shared regulations has meant that we can think ahead when it comes to regulatory changes, we can make our rules and procedures more comprehensive, and we can develop a culture of ethics and compliance among our 56 000 co-workers.

ETHICS IN PRACTICE

Code of ethics
The Code contributes to establishing confidence among customers, staff, shareholders and stakeholders.
It sets the rules of conduct that everyone must apply. It is a reference in terms of business practices and behavior for each Manager and staff
The Code is intended to be shared with all stakeholders with whom we interact. We expect them to comply with it or to apply standards that are least equivalent to those set out in our Code of Ethics.

Anti-corruption code of conduct
The Bouygues Group condemns all forms of active and passive Corruption and Influence peddling, whether in the public or private sector and whether committed in France or abroad and the Group has a zero tolerance policy as regards corruption and any breach of the applicable rules.
This code sets out the anti-corruption information, prevention, detection, control and sanction measures to be implemented everywhere the Group conducts business.
