For Eiffage, respect for individuals applies to employees as well as partners and external stakeholders. Its primary focuses are prevention and safety on construction sites, equal opportunities, professional integration, non-discrimination. These values apply to all of the Group’s geographical locations.

Suppliers and subcontractors are essential contributors to the Eiffage Group’s activity. A responsible policy involves extending the Group’s requirements to these partners and to the terms of collaboration with them.
Competition, conflicts of interest, corruption, influence, etc. Eiffage is vigilant about business practices and regulatory compliance in all countries where it operates.
The Group defines internal rules and, in certain cases, commits to sanctioning any breaches it may be apprised of, regardless of criminal proceedings being implemented in the country concerned.
