Dalkia’s policy on ethics and legal compliance

In 2016, the Executive Committee of the EDF Group adopted the EDF Group Ethics and Compliance Policy, applicable to subsidiaries, including the Dalkia group. This policy includes principles that managers should know, apply and enforce, and is an interpretation of other internal Group regulations.

The superior document in the field of ethics is the Group Ethics Declaration /click here/, based on the values ​​of the capital group: respect, solidarity and responsibility. It defines the principles to which EDF and Dalkia employees are subject on a daily basis. This declaration has been implemented in all entities of the Dalkia Polska group.
