Cegeka’s CSR charter focusses on three pillars: decrease our environmental impact, provide a diverse and inclusive working environment & innovate for a better world. A full version of our Cegeka CSR charter is available on our website.

Suppliers must read, understand and strive to apply the principles set out in this Supplier Code of Conduct to their business and supply chain. This Supplier Code of Conduct is in addition to any corporate social responsibility requirements included in our procurement contracts.
