our priorities

GE respects our people, our planet, and our communities

General Electric

As a global company with reach across 170 countries, we are mindful of the impact our actions have on the world – whether it be the people who make up our global workforce or those of our suppliers, the communities where we live and work, or the planet itself.

Safety for our people

At GE, we put safety first. Protecting our people and those doing work on our behalf across the globe is among GE’s top priorities. We extend our safety expectations to all places where we work, including at our own operations, customer sites, in the field, and at our project installation and construction sites.

Environmental stewardship and climate

At GE, we are committed to EHS excellence to protect people, our communities, and the environment. We manage our environmental performance and compliance by holding to the same high standards globally, often in places where the expectations we set and enforce exceed local regulations.

Commitment to human rights

People are at the heart of GE’s operations and strategy. We have implemented a suite of policies and programs to respect our own workers, those of our suppliers, and the communities affected by GE operations and business relationships.
