Ethics system

In keeping with its values and undertakings, Degrémont seeks in all circumstances to adopt best international practices in social corporate responsibility and ethics(*).


Degrémont refers to the ethics charter set up by SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT and puts into practise the Group's fundamental ethical principles through its own ethical system.


Ethics principles

  • Acting in accordance with laws and regulations
  • Establishing a culture of integrity
  • Behaving fairly and honestly
  • Respecting others


Ethical system

The ethical system is managed by the ethics officer who chairs the ethics club, that is formed by various ethics-discipline advisors. It is displayed by the local ethics officers in the countries where Degrémont operates.





(*)International reference models that inspired SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT's ethics charter:

  • ISO 26000: Guidance on social responsibility
  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Additional Protocols
  • The standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO)
  • The Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises laid down by the Organization for Economic co-Operation and Development (OECD)
