Values and Ethics

We are bigger than our bottom line because we know that how we do our work is just as important as what we do. We are committed to improving our communities and environment while conducting business with honesty, integrity and fairness.

Our Values guide us to make every decision, every day, in the right way and ensure we put the needs of those we serve at the center of all we do.

Concerns Program

Our Values and Code of Ethics call on us to act with honesty, respect, fairness and integrity. But, when that doesn’t happen, the Concerns Program is a resource to report a wide range of illegal or unethical behaviors. All Southern Company system employees and contractors can use the program. The Concerns Program can be contacted at:

All concerns are treated confidentially and the company does not tolerate retaliation against anyone for filing a concern.

Our Code of Ethics defines our culture. It guides behavior and makes Our Values come to life every day. These ethical guidelines apply to all of us, and remind us that how we do our jobs is just as important as what we do.
