ENGIE Establishes Responsible Business Charter and Independent Scrutiny Board

Reporter: Stuart Littleford

ENGIE, the leading energy and services Group, has established a new Responsible Business Charter and independent Scrutiny Board, further underlining the company’s commitment to operate to the highest economic, social and environmental standards.

The Charter ensures that ENGIE will make commitments in the four areas of fair business growth, transparency and accountability, being a fair employer, and supporting our communities and environment. The Charter responds to the need for the business to demonstrate how it contributes to society more widely.

The company’s adherence with the Responsible Business Charter will be overseen by the newly established independent Scrutiny Board, chaired by Lord Bob Kerslake. The Scrutiny Board will report back to ENGIE’s UK Executive Board and be supported and independently validated by the Centre for Public Scrutiny.

The four commitments will be validated by supporting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on key issues including, speed of supplier payments, fair executive pay, customer satisfaction, pension obligations, environmental and social responsibility, diversity and inclusion, and living wage.

Wilfrid Petrie, CEO of ENGIE UK, said: “Operating in a responsible and transparent manner has been absolutely fundamental to ENGIE’s operations, and I am proud that we have formally established this commitment through the Responsible Business Charter.  I believe that the Charter and work of the Scrutiny Board will establish a new industry standard helping us to lead in responsible business practice.”

Lord Bob Kerslake, Chair of the Scrutiny Board said: “UK energy and service companies are facing evermore public scrutiny of their business, so it is extremely encouraging that ENGIE has acted pro-actively to strengthen their business practices.  I and the other Scrutiny Board members are looking forward to working with ENGIE to ensure they continue to operate for the benefit of all their stakeholders.”
