Compliance System


Our Compliance System aims to establish an adequate management of the company so that the decisions taken are in accordance with our ethical principles and compliance with the law and help to create value in our environment and for all our stakeholders. This system is based on our Codes of Ethics and Conduct for professionals and suppliers and on all other regulations that develop or complement them, such as, among others, the Internal Information System Policy, the Compliance Policy and the Anti-bribery and Anti-corruption Policy.



Ethics and Values


The purpose of Nexus Energía is to accompany and empower people, companies and cities on the path of energy transition, thus promoting the change of their relationship with energy towards a more responsible and efficient use of it that contributes to the decarbonization of society.

We want to achieve this goal based on a culture of ethics, transparency, responsible management and maximum commitment to sustainability in the three pillars: environmental, social and governance.

The Code of Ethics and Conduct aims to share the set of values and principles that should guide our actions and decisions to maintain this culture among Nexus professionals as well as among collaborators and suppliers with whom we interact..

Internal Information System and Ethics Channel Policy


In the Internal Information System of Nexus Energía we have a whistleblower channel in order to ensure an ethical environment and that the performance of professionals and suppliers is in line with our values and principles and is respectful in compliance with the law and internal regulations.
This channel allows the reporting of possible or potential irregularities, illicit or conduct contrary to the law or internal regulations, specifically:

– Actions or omissions that, within the personal and material framework of application of Law 2/2023, of February 20, regulating the protection of persons reporting regulatory and anti-corruption violations, may constitute breaches of European Union Law or serious or very serious criminal or administrative offenses according to state regulations (art. 2), including reports of workplace, sexual or gender-based harassment.


– Any breach or risk of breach of the Code of Ethics and Conduct, as well as internal or external regulations that develop it, and those related to the Corporate Crime Prevention Model of Nexus Energy.
Both the Internal Information System and the Channel guarantee a secure and confidential information environment through the implementation of organizational and technical measures.


This channel is not a customer service (customer service channel) and, therefore, is not the way to make complaints by customers of Nexus Energy or other Group company.
Communications to the channel can be made by attaching the Ethics Channel form in writing or verbally through the relevant channels.

Without prejudice to the channels of communication of the internal channel of Nexus Energy, the person concerned may contact the external channels of the Independent Authority for the Protection of the Informant or before the competent authorities or regional bodies.
