|To emphasize the importance of maintaining high ethical standards and strictly observing all applicable laws and regulations, all of our employees, managers, and executives—including our Board of Directors—are given appropriate training, and a copy of a very important booklet, titled “CH Energy Group, Inc. CODE of BUSINESS CONDUCT and ETHICS.” Immediately following is the booklet’s introduction, in the form of a letter to all in the organization from Mr. Lant. The entire document can be accessed below.
Dear Friends and Co-workers:
This Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the “Code”) sets forth the commitment of CH Energy Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) to conduct our business in accordance with the highest ethical standards and all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
The Code, adopted by our Board of Directors, states the guiding principles by which we operate our Company and conduct our daily business with our shareholders, customers, suppliers, government authorities and each other. These principles apply to all directors, officers and employees.
Thinking about our principles is very important. It reinforces our commitment to our values, and it helps us focus on the ethical issues we face.
The guiding principles stated in this Code are not all-inclusive, and they cannot replace thoughtful behavior. Each of us is personally responsible for applying our own common sense in recognizing ethical issues and for handling them honestly, directly and with a commitment to fair dealing.
I expect each of you to read this Code carefully, and to abide by its provisions and its spirit. I believe firmly that our Company’s reputation and business success depend on the integrity of each and every one of us.
Steven V. Lant
Chairman of the Board, President
and Chief Executive Officer
