Our Ethics for You

Since Serge Kampf founded the Capgemini Group in 1967, ethics have been fundamental to the way we do business. We continue to use ethics to build trust with our clients, shareholders, team members, suppliers and other stakeholders:

  • Our shareholders: remaining accountable for achieving profitable and sustainable growth, and providing accurate business and financial information in a transparent and timely manner
  • Our team members: paying attention to their career development and wellbeing, offering challenging objectives and fair rewards, and ensuring a diverse workforce and work environment
  • Our alliances, partners, and suppliers: conducting business on a fair and ethical two-way basis with and acting in compliance with our sustainable procurement principles
  • The communities in which we operate and live near: acting in a socially responsible manner, minimizing the impact of our business activity on the environment through an ongoing drive towards sustainability
