As a global company with reach across 170 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
At GE, we put safety first. Protecting our people and those doing work on our behalf across the globe is among GE’s top priorities. We extend our safety expectations to all places where we work, including at our own operations, customer sites, in the field, and at our project installation and construction sites.
Environmental stewardship and climate
At GE, we are committed to EHS excellence to protect people, our communities, and the environment. We manage our environmental performance and compliance by holding to the same high standards globally, often in places where the expectations we set and enforce exceed local regulations.
Commitment to human rights
People are at the heart of GE’s operations and strategy. We have implemented a suite of policies and programs to respect 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.
Lifting our communities
The GE Foundation is committed to transforming our communities and shaping the diverse workforce of tomorrow by leveraging the power of GE.
