Sustainable Policies and Standards

It is critical that Con Edison conducts its business ethically, safely, and in an environmentally excellent manner. Our policies and procedures are the road map for achieving those standards.

At the corporate level, policies and procedures include Corporate Policy Manuals, Corporate Instructions, Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety Procedures (CEHSPs), General Environmental, Health and Safety Instructions (GEHSIs), Environmental Specifications, General Accounting Procedures (GAPs), and the Standards of Business Conduct (SBC). Additionally, each organization has policies, procedures, and specifications specific to the work they do. These documents are kept on various websites (some internal, some external) as well as in hard copy at certain locations for easy access to all employees.
