All people should have their fundamental human rights respected. At Schneider Electric, we’ve got to avoid any human rights abuse and as a multinational, we need to go beyond the laws or regulations on forced and child labor. We also have to make sure our third parties follow our commitment and act to prevent human rights violations.
At Schneider Electric, we have a zero-tolerance policy toward corruption and other unethical practices. As such, and to be in compliance with the relevant anti-corruption laws (in particular the American FCPA, the British UKBA, and the French Sapin 2 Law), we have put in place an Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct, to be reviewed by the end of 2019. The document identifies and defines risks related to corruption and describes behaviors expected from each employee and the governing bodies of Schneider, as well as complementary policies and procedures (such as the Gifts & Invitations and Business Agents policies). Moreover, employees most at risk (e.g., employees from finance, sales, and procurement) have been trained through a dedicated anti-corruption e-learning.
