ETHICAL GOVERNANCE

Actions undertaken to prevent corruption

TAQA Morocco has developed a Business Code of Conduct, a Deontology Code, a Directors’ Handbook, and a Suppliers’ Code of Conduct. It is also a signatory to the CGEM Good Payer Charter.

. Business Code of Conduct

This Code, signed and prefaced by the President of the Management Board and the Legal Director, concerns the work environment, integrity rules, environmental preservation, and the implementation of the Code. Each TAQA Morocco collaborator signs a commitment to comply with the provisions of the Code. The deontological rules also apply to suppliers and subcontractors working together with or on behalf of TAQA Morocco.

The Deontology Code establishes the guiding principles and rules within TAQA Morocco to ensure that all collaborators have a shared vision of ethical standards and that they practice their profession in compliance with those standards. All collaborators are responsible for supporting these rules in order to ensure that they are followed by everyone.

. Directors Handbook:

The Directors’ Handbook is a practical manual covering the roles and responsibilities of the Supervisory Board and the Management Board under law n°17-95, as modified and supplemented. It also covers the missions delegated to the Audit Committee and the Nomination and Remuneration Committee that is part of the Supervisory Board.

This Code is a standards-based guideline for suppliers and subcontractors of TAQA Morocco. It constitutes a framework for express commitment to comply with the rules and values set forth in it.
