Duke Energy works every day to power customers’ lives and help communities thrive. A strong commitment to safety, integrity and service drives our daily efforts and future vision. We amplify this in our Human Rights Policy.
The cornerstones of this policy can be found in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Internally, a Code of Business Ethics and Supplier Code of Conduct provide the backbone to commitments outlined in the human rights policy, including:
Duke Energy employees, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders can report a human rights concern anonymously by phone or online through the company’s EthicsLine, or directly to company personnel. In 2019, no human rights concerns were raised through the company’s EthicsLine or internal channels.
Respect for human rights is an imperative to powering lives. Duke Energy is proud to embrace the ongoing process of educating, learning, evaluating and improving how we operate.
