The code of conduct on lobbying regulates the Group's lobbying activity by adopting commitments to make ENGIE known while taking into account the general interest. This code is applicable to all lobbyists acting on behalf of the Group, whether they are employees or representatives of the Group. This code meets the Group's commitments in terms of transparency, integrity and reliability.
ENGIE condemns all forms of influence peddling and corruption. It refuses to partake in any financing of political activity, including in countries where this is authorised and regulated by the law.
In line with its commitment not to take part in financing of political activities, the Group did not provide any such financing in 2019.
ENGIE North America Inc., a subsidiary in the North America BU, authorized a Political Action Committee (PAC) whereby employees in the US can contribute individually and on their own behalf to political parties or political actions, which is then used to support political candidates and parties. The companies of the ENGIE Group make no financial contribution to these funds and have no influence on the way these funds are allocated.
