A company where everyone is treated with respect and where there is zero tolerance for intimidation of any kind. Our Code of Conduct and Integrity sets out how we work towards these goals.
The Code of Conduct and Integrity describes the main principles for all employees, including temporary ones, in the Vattenfall Group. We believe it is down to all of us to protect Vattenfall's position and reputation by carrying out our activities in accordance with our Code of Conduct.
The owner of Vattenfall, the Swedish State, believes that all public holdings should be a good example of anti-corruption and business ethics. They do this by adhering to international guidelines for countering corruption and ethical business.
Zero Tolerance Policy
The World Economic Forum has launched an initiative for fighting corruption. Vattenfall has signed this initiative. Among other things, this means that Vattenfall has a zero-tolerance policy to bribery and accepting kickbacks. This is set out in our Code of Conduct and Integrity, as well as in our internal instructions for preventing bribery and corruption.
