ENGIE announces today its commitment to embrace The B Team’s responsible tax principles.
The B Team is a non-profit organisation bringing together business and civil society leaders from around the world, with the aim of promoting a more sustainable economy with a positive impact on planet and people.
Launched at the Taxation and Sustainable Development Goals conference at the United Nations New York headquarters in February 2018, The B Team’s responsible tax principles articulate the best policies in seven key areas: accountability and governance, compliance, business structure, relationships with tax authorities, seeking and accepting tax incentives, supporting effective tax systems, and transparency.
ENGIE is thus confirming its commitment to contribute to best tax practices and to encourage the emergence of responsible taxation around the world.
Judith Hartmann, Executive Vice President, CFO and Member of ENGIE’s executive leadership team, says: "As a global player in the energy transition, ENGIE implements its values of responsibility and exemplarity towards society and the planet. The Group has made the transition to a carbon-neutral economy the core of its purpose. Its corporate responsibility must obviously be expressed to all its stakeholders. Thus, ENGIE's tax policy responds to a renewed requirement to reconcile economic performance with the fair application of tax law in all the countries where it operates.”
