As a global company with operations, offices and employees across four continents, ERG is required to demonstrate and uphold the highest business, operational and ethical standards. This includes, at the very minimum, abiding by the laws of all countries in which we operate. We expect to be held accountable for our actions to our stakeholders and work to ensure that we conduct business according to ERG ethical principles.
One of our fundamental commitments is to live up to the highest standards of business integrity and professionalism. These standards are set out in the ERG Code of Conduct, and embedded into everything we do. The Code of Conduct sets out our standards and policies on key legal, moral and ethical matters, including Anti-Corruption, Human Rights, Equality, Conflicts of Interests, Confidential Information and Data Protection and is binding on the Board of Managers, ERG employees, officers and directors, and ERG’s counterparties, worldwide.
ERG has also adopted the ERG Supplier Code of Conduct, which sets out the expectations we have of our suppliers in relation to maintaining ERG ethical principles and responsible supply chains.
ERG is committed to creating an open culture where all employees are free to ask questions and report concerns (without fear of reprisal) through their line manager, ERG’s Legal and Compliance teams or through the Whistleblowing Hotline. Our business partners can also report potential risks of violations of the ERG Code of Conduct to the ERG Hotline.
The ERG hotline is 100% confidential and is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week by an independent company.
The ERG Hotline can be contacted by:
• Hotline website (www.erg.ethicspoint.com)
• Telephone (the list of numbers is provided on www.erg.ethicspoint.com)
Compliance with the ERG ethical principles by each of us, and our business partners, enhances the confidence of stakeholders in our Company and contributes to its sustainable development.
