Integrating the vigilance plan into the ethical approach
ENGIE has set up a governance, an overall coordination and a specific monitoring of the vigilance plan at the highest level of the company to ensure the proper deployment of the plan throughout the Group and to effectively meet the objectives of the law. The Group's vigilance plan was validated by the Group's Executive Committee on 22 January 2018, which entrusted the Ethics, Compliance & Privacy Department with its management, under the responsibility of the General Secretary.
Fully integrated into the company's ethical organisation, the vigilance plan benefits from the governance, monitoring systems, resources and actors involved and is monitored at the highest level of the Group. A report on the effective implementation of the plan is presented annually to the Ethics, Environment and Sustainable Development Committee of the Board of Directors.
A transversal monitoring committee
To ensure the deployment of the vigilance plan and to globally coordinate the various approaches involved, a specific inter-directional committee was set up as soon as the law was adopted in 2017. Initially responsible for reviewing existing policies in relation to the law and defining the Group's vigilance plan, it is now responsible for monitoring the plan and ensuring that it is correctly distributed, that the various measures are coordinated, that the entities are made aware of it and for facilitating the reporting of information to the Group.
The members are:
|Department||DECP||RSE||Group Purchasing Department||Group Health and Safety Department||Internal Control||Risk|
Aware of the need for distribution and adoption as close to the field as possible, specific actions related to the deployment of the vigilance plan at local level, such as the organisation of exchanges between the various departments in charge of the application of the vigilance plan or the application of the new ethics and vigilance clause in the context of contractual relations, have been requested from the entities.
