"Thales introduced a comprehensive Ethics policy more than a decade ago and is now recognised as a leader in the field.
The Ethics policy is key to our ability to perform in a globalised environment where customers, shareholders and civil society are unanimous in their demand for irreproachable ethical conduct on the part of businesses. (...)"

In 2000, Thales established a formal corporate responsibility policy with a strong focus on prevention of corruption. The policy enjoys the support of the Group’s most senior management and is continuously adjusted and updated to remain relevant in an evolving and increasingly complex environment.
In today’s global marketplace, Thales’s growth is increasingly driven by emerging markets. And, according to Transparency International, the risk of corruption is greater in emerging markets than in mature ones. Successfully doing business in emerging markets thus requires a company to adapt its corruption prevention processes to new environments.
Thales is committed to providing all shareholders with full, clear information on a regular basis. The Group maintains constant contact with the financial community to provide a clearer understanding of the Thales corporate strategy, financial policy, and environmental, social and governance priorities.
Recruiting and retaining the best talent is vital to sustaining this leadership, and constantly developing employees’ skills and capabilities is a core management commitment at every level of the organisation.
The Group is progressively embedding an environmental dimension into every level of its business and organisation, helping to build a shared culture of authentic environmental responsibility. Thales and its employees are also engaged with local communities around the world, in particular by helping to provide learning opportunities for young people.
In many of the Group’s countries of operation, Thales companies have a prominent role in the community and are major players in the local economy and employment market. Thales staff throughout the world support their local communities in a variety of ways, particularly through youth promotion projects and educational programmes.
