Modern Slavery Information

Dear valued ENGIE Suppliers and Business Partners,  

We are reaching out to you, our key suppliers and business partners, to let you know about our recent initiatives in combatting the potential for modern slavery in our operations and supply chains.  

We are committed to working closely with you and making available resources we’ve found useful to do this.  Of course, we are also interested to hear more about your efforts and would welcome opportunities to discuss these, and work together, with you.  We will touch base with you in the coming months.  You can also contact your usual ENGIE or Simply Energy representative or one of our listed representatives below.

At ENGIE, the respect for others is one of the four principles embedded in our Ethics Code of Conduct.  We are committed to respecting internationally recognised human rights wherever we operate, or our activities impact, around the world. This commitment is about doing business responsibly and sustainably.  We focus on identifying and preventing risks of negative impacts of our operations and activities on human rights; and the explicit rejection of modern slavery is central to this.  At ENGIE, every employee is responsible for building and upholding these ethical human rights values. We also expect our suppliers and business partners to uphold these values.

In 2021 we published our first modern slavery statement under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (Act).  This statement is available further below (in addition to the public register of the Australian Border Force here).  We encourage you to read this statement and, regardless of whether you are also subject to the law, to take steps to protect against any form of modern slavery in your own operations and supply chains.  Our approach is based on a commitment to continuous improvement as we increase our understanding and awareness of modern slavery risks. We can only do this with your support.

We have published a range of resources which we use and which you may also find useful – see further below.
