EVN attaches the greatest importance to the integrity and law-abiding behaviour of all its employees as well as its business partners.

Our Code of Conduct

As an internationally operating energy and environmental services company, the management and employees of EVN have a far-reaching responsibility and role model function both in Austria and abroad. For this reason, the EVN Code of Conduct was developed, which defines and summarises the principles and guidelines underlying responsible action for people of integrity.

All interested parties and business partners can download the EVN Code of Conduct as a PDF file.

Moreover, a comprehensive set of internal rules applicable for all business areas is binding for EVN employees. In particular, these rules encompass the relevant guidelines and code of practice for the EVN Group, which regulate day-to-day business on an operational level. Employees can find key rules, regulations and commentaries pertaining to their work as well as the EVN Code of Conduct on the Intranet. Partners and suppliers will obtain all relevant information from their specially trained contact persons in the EVN procurement department. In addition, internal trainings and information events take place on an ongoing basis. In case of any perceived violations or if any uncertainties arise in connection with ethically relevant matters, the responsible person to contact is the EVN Chief Compliance Officer Christian Mende, at +43 2236 200-123 63 or per e-mail at
