We build for a better society as we undertake important projects and the innovative, sustainable solutions we use to deliver them. Our values guide what we do and how we work. This dual focus helps ensure a sustainable future for our people, customers, and communities.
IEC is committed to performing with a high degree of integrity and transparency. To do this, we have a comprehensive ethics and compliance program, a code of conduct that provides direction for our behavior, and our "act ethically and transparently" value, and we educate our employees to always do the right thing.
We only work with customers and partners that do not require us to compromise our own high standards, and we never take shortcuts. Consequently, we are actively engaged to improve ethics across our industry.
Construction remains one of the most hazardous industries in our home market, so we focus on eliminating risks by thoroughly training our people, comprehensively planning our projects, and operating according to our industry-leading safety procedures and policies. Our culture of caring is also central to our goal of no one being injured on or around our workplaces.
We truly care for the safety of each and every person connected with our projects. Consequently, we strive to foster an environment in which everyone takes responsibility for their own safety, as well as the safety of those around them.
Safety permeates all that we do. We consider safety when selecting projects and when choosing supply chain partners. When projects are being planned and designed, we look for ways to eliminate risks. Every day, nothing is more important to us than living our value of Care for Life.
We create opportunities for diverse groups to enter the job market together with customers, subcontractors, and strategic partners by providing skills, opportunities, and employment when possible.
We support schools and other organizations by providing the younger generation with role models that inspire further study and promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning to encourage greater diversity in our sector.
We help improve communities through design together with our customers, partners, and local actors. We do this by improving neighborhoods around our workplace and by using holistic design solutions on our projects.
