Ethics at the heart of corporate responsibility

A new whistleblowing system

For over ten years, Rexel has been committed to continuous improvement. This commitment resulted in the development of an Ethics Guide for all Rexel Group employees, partners, and suppliers. This guide covers business ethics (corruption, conflicts of interest, competition Law customer and supplier relations, protection of personal data and use of social media, etc.) and employee-related topics (health and safety at work, discrimination and harassment, social dialogue).

In 2018, Rexel updated its whistleblowing procedure in order to better guarantee whistleblowers' anonymity. It complies with the requirements of French laws relating to transparency, the fight against corruption, the modernization of economic life, and the duty of vigilance of parent companies and ordering companies.

The procedure is available to all employees in all of the Group's countries, as well as to customers, suppliers, subcontractors, and all of the Group's stakeholders.
