The value system as a basis for action

The objective of ethics programme is to ensure compliance with ethics principles and strengthen PGNiG’s corporate culture by identifying behaviors that are desirable within the company, as well as those that will not be accepted. The rules of ethics are defined in the PGNiG Code of Ethics and in the Principles of Good Practice of the PGNiG Group Manager.

The PGNiG Code of Ethics describes standards in four categories: responsibility, partnership, credibility and quality. These are also the values which PGNiG employees indicated as the most important ones in the satisfaction survey. The system of values at the PGNiG Group is supported by the Ethics Officer employed at PGNiG, who explains ethics matters to the entities that do not have an ethics officer and recommends steps to be taken by the management of those entities. In addition, it formally responds to any concerns or doubts raised by the PGNiG Group employees. At PGNiG, no official reports on breach of ethics were submitted.

The Ethics Programme Management System and the Ethics Committee have also been in place for several years. The Committee consists of directors and managers of key areas who are responsible for implementing ethical standards. Meetings of the Ethics Committee are held at least twice a year. The PGNiG Group companies also have their own codes of ethics and ethics officers.

The Ethics Officer is responsible for promoting PGNiG’s ethical behaviour, and monitors compliance with the Code of Ethics by receiving and evaluating reports of ethics violations and liaising with the Ethics Committee and the Ethics Officers of the PGNiG Group. The PGNiG Group has 10 persons to perform this function.

The PGNiG Group ethics officers supervised ethics training covering over 3,000 Group employees, with particular focus on workplace harassment and ethical awareness. The need was also stressed to involve managers in transferring ethics knowledge to their subordinates.

The PGNiG Code of Ethics is a set of moral principles and ethics relevant to PGNiG corporate culture, which provides a strong foundation for building lasting and transparent relationships with all stakeholders. It also describes the core values which are expected to facilitate the process of developing an ethical environment and a culture of trust at the PGNiG Group.

At PGNiG, no official reports on breach of ethics were submitted. The same was true in the majority of Group companies with ethics. PSG, which has the largest number of employees in the PGNiG Group, registered 60 applications throughout the year. In accordance with the Company’s Ethics Principles and the Code of Ethics, issues were dealt with by two full-time ethics officers directly or by appointed Ethics Committees depending on the subject and scope of the issues raised.
