CGG defines its ethical standards, core values and commitments in its Group Values, Code of Business Conduct and in the policies that guide their implementation. CGG’s Ethics Committee supports and oversees implementation of the Code of Business Conduct.

Code of Business Conduct

CGG Code of Business Conduct updates, revises and summarizes, in one universal framework, CGG standards for employee conduct, helping us to act consistently with our Group Mission and Vision & Values. It helps guide each of us as we work towards delivering our products and services with integrity. The code is a reference to important information all employees need to know – including where to get additional help.

CGG is a global company, and that means our employees are subject to the laws and regulations of different countries. The code establishes principles for business conduct applicable throughout the Group, regardless of location.
