Code of Conduct

TGS Ensures our Values and Code of Conduct are Upheld

Doing the right thing is the TGS way.

TGS is committed to compliance with all legal and ethical requirements and standards of the geoscientific industry and the communities where TGS employees live and work. TGS considers its values based culture and environment a key element in continued success as a company. 

As a function within the TGS executive team, the Compliance Program sets ethical standards, provides training and educational resources and responds to all concerns raised by TGS’ internal and external stakeholders. The TGS Compliance Officer reports to the Board of Directors and the TGS CEO and provides updates on a regular basis.

TGS investigates all potential violations of its Statement of Values and Code of Conduct, such as illegal acts, conflicts of interest, financial fraud, corruption issues or breaches of TGS’ corporate policies. TGS also engages internal or external legal counsel as needed, in dealing with possible violations of its corporate policies. Employees are encouraged to report any violation of TGS’ values or policies to the Corporate Compliance Officer or through the TGS hotline.
