our priorities

Enabling impact on people and the planet for the better.

General Electric

As a global company that services customers in over 175 countries, we are mindful of the impact our actions have on the world—whether it be the people who make up our global workforce or those of our suppliers, the communities where we live and work, or the planet itself.

Safety for our people

With approximately 168,000 employees and operations in over 175 countries, GE’s impact across the globe is immense. Looking after the safety of our people and those who work on our behalf – so that they can fulfill GE’s mission of building a world that works – is a top priority for the company.

General Electric

Environmental stewardship and climate

Climate change is an urgent global priority. As a company that helps generate one-third of the world’s electricity, we are committed to decarbonizing the energy sector while increasing access to reliable, sustainable and affordable electricity including for the 750 million people who lack access.

Commitment to human rights

People are at the heart of GE’s operations and strategy. We recently released our GE Human Rights Report to provide greater transparency into how we run our human rights program, from our suite of governance documents to our due diligence program. This report details our program with respect to our own workers, those of our suppliers, and the communities affected by GE operations and business relationships.

Ethical supply chain and responsible mineral sourcing

GE is committed to unyielding integrity and high standards of business conduct in our dealings with suppliers. Since 2002, GE has implemented an extensive Supplier Responsibility Governance (SRG) Program to build and strengthen an ethical, sustainable, and transparent global supply chain and establish clear social and environmental responsibility requirements for suppliers.
