Corporate Social Responsibility

OUR COMMITMENT

The heart of our Corporate Social Responsibility is reflected in our priorities that are central to the success of our business. They are the issues that will define our commitment over the near term. They focus equally on lessening our direct impact through our operations as they do on our relationship impacts with staff, customers and key stakeholders across the Australian energy industry.

We regard CSR as ‘business critical’ and have refined our priorities and developed a more robust methodology enabling us to provide a CSR scorecard for all our stakeholders.

We know that for our program to be successful it must pervade all our operations. Hence ethics, environment, people and community are an everyday commitment and I look forward to sharing great examples of our progress year on year.


CSR POLICY

As one of the largest Australian energy companies, we maintain a level of social responsibility that complements our economic activity. The ENGIE Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) framework connects activity with responsibility. It governs our business operations and engagement with stakeholders including employees, government, business, regulating bodies, customers and community.

CSR frameworks are self-regulating mechanisms that monitor alignment with global standards and local expectations with regard to business conduct. The framework ensures CSR is embedded in values and behaviours core to our business in Australia and in line with ENGIE leadership and identity. Many initiatives impact more than one quadrant within the framework.
