Ethics and Compliance
TECO Energy, including each of its operating companies, has long demonstrated a strong commitment to conducting business in accordance with the spirit and requirements of applicable federal, state and local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations.
We hold ourselves to the highest ethical behavior in all our business activities, including legal, regulatory, financial, operational and environmental matters. Primary responsibility for compliance with laws and regulations rests with TECO Energy's management, team members and operating companies and affiliates. This responsibility applies at each of our business locations and at all of our facilities.
All TECO Energy board members, officers and team members are responsible for abiding by the Code of Conduct. It is the guiding document of TECO Energy's Ethics & Compliance Program, which also incorporates administrative policies, procedures adopted for business reasons or in response to legal responsibilities, auditing and monitoring activities on a routine or scheduled basis, and ethics and subject matter training to educate our team members on their responsibilities.
TECO Energy's Ethics & Compliance Department supports all levels of team members and the Board of Directors on matters related to corporate integrity and ethical behavior.
