Lead By Example
Sonepar is committed to very high ethical, social, and environmental standards. We aim to be a responsible corporate citizen in all countries where we operate. We give our best performance - and we do what is right, making integrity and ethics the foundation of everything we do.
Compliance and Integrity
Complying with legal and regulatory requirements is a challenge we meet in all countries where we operate.
However, we not only rise to this challenge but go beyond it, because we make compliance and integrity a core, daily priority for our associates.
The Group Code of Conduct sets out the principles and rules of good conduct that all Sonepar’s associates and suppliers must use as a guide to their daily business.
This, and related Policies and Procedures, all form part of a comprehensive Group Compliance Program. This also includes educational and information campaigns, risk mapping, reporting, whistleblowing, book- and record-keeping obligations, assessments, and audits.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is about the dimensions that make us different and unique. Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people from all backgrounds are given equal access to opportunities and resources.
We all have a diversity story to tell and that’s why Sonepar believes in creating a work environment where everyone can feel safe, belong, and use their voice. Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a central focus of our global, strategic Impact plan.
At Sonepar, we can help accelerate these changes. Our business is at the very heart of the electrical ecosystem, and we control our destiny – our family of shareholders strongly support Sonepar standing up and playing its part in the energy transition. As a result, we can act with confidence and decisively.
We want to create a ripple effect – where the actions we take on sustainability multiply outwards, resulting in a wider and wider impact on the world. Our guiding principles are to:
- Embed our sustainability strategy within our corporate strategy.
- Align our efforts with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
- Focus on behavioral change as well as achieving targets.
