Our ethics and goals
Safety, reliability and affordability have been Puget Sound Energy’s main focus for over 135 years. At PSE, we fully embody our company goals and ethics. We lead with excellence and pride in our legacy of great customer service while making communities stronger and greener.
Our ethics: Doing the right thing
While doing our part in the communities we live in and serve, we hold ourselves and our suppliers to strict ethical standards. Our ethics and compliance program covers a broad range of topics but can be summarized into one simple sentence: Do what is right.
By upholding these standards in our daily tasks, we continue to serve with fairness, honesty and decency — building upon a foundation that we have cultivated for more than 135 years.
To help us maintain the highest standards, we have established the Ethics Help Line to report any matters that are not consistent with our Code of Conduct. This service is open to the public, PSE employees and management, is available 24/7 and is anonymous.
Ethics web intake:
- Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- Callers may remain anonymous
- Operated by a third-party vendor
- Information is reported to PSE and investigated to determine appropriate action
- Individuals will be able to follow-up on investigations
- Reports will be reviewed by appropriate officers and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors for trends and broader issues
