CGG defines its ethical standards, core values and commitments in its Group Values, Code of Ethics, Business Code of Conduct and in the policies that guide their implementation. CGG’s Ethics Committee supports and oversees implementation of the Business Code of Conduct.
The development of the CGG Group is constructed on the foundation of its values and ethics. This represents a commitment by CGG to its clients, its shareholders, its employees and its partners to comply with laws and regulations and to respect the principles of its Business Code of Conduct.
The CGG Business Code of 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.
CGG Business Code of Conduct is available in:
A dedicated training program towards our employees is in place to ensure visibility, understanding and appliance of the Business Code of Conduct.
To further encourage compliance, CGG has established an independent Ethics Alert system to report irregularities to or violations of the CGG Code of Conduct. An Ethics Alert hotline, managed by an independent third party, is open to employees 24 hours a day in all countries where we work or operate.
To support the Business Code of Conduct, CGG created the Ethics Committee. Enquiries about our Business Code of Conduct should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
