Code of Conduct (CoC)
EUPD Research, as part of the HRCG Group, has long been committed to corporate environmental, social and economic responsibility and believes that sustainability is also a key success factor for all of the HRCG Group’s own business units – hereinafter referred to as HRCG.
EUPD Research is also keen to work with companies that adopt social and environmental practices in line with international standards. For this reason, EUPD Research requires all its suppliers and subcontractors to comply with all national, European and international rules applicable to them in terms of ethical and responsible standards of conduct.
This applies in particular to fundamental principles such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the conventions of the International Labor Organization (even if these have not been ratified by all countries, especially with regard to the prohibition of child labor and forced or compulsory labor), the OECD Guidelines (especially on anti-corruption) and commitments to which EUPD is a signatory, such as the United Nations Global Compact.

Watts on – Lighting Students Lives
The Watts On program was inspired by the safety, security, and educational empowerment that light brings.
Since 2019, we have been distributing solar lights to students, with a special focus on those preparing for national exams. This is because in Kenya, all students take the same exams regardless of their access to electricity. The results they achieve determine the level and quality of secondary schools they can attend.
With the support of the county education board, school principals and our local team, we distribute the lamps. In the process, we also conduct training sessions involving parents and teachers.
We are also collecting data to track and monitor the long-term impact of the project.
We invite you to learn more about this transformative project that aims to improve students’ lives through access to light, illuminating their educational journey. With “Watts On,” we are not only giving light, but also hope and opportunity. Because we firmly believe that education is the key to a better future.
Our commitment has a transformative impact on many aspects of everyday life:
– Improved educational performance and school attendance: thanks to access to solar light, students are able to extend their learning hours, leading to
improved academic performance and higher attendance rates.
– Cost savings and economic benefits: The use of solar lights replaces costly and environmentally harmful lighting alternatives, resulting in significant cost
savings for families.
– Reduced environmental pressure and deforestation: the use of solar lights reduces the need for wood and fossil fuels for lighting, helping to reduce
environmental pressure and deforestation.
– Improved Community Morale: Our project strengthens the sense of belonging and morale of the community by improving the quality of life for all
– Health and Well-Being: Replacing open fires or kerosene-powered lamps with clean, bright light minimizes health risks.
– Reducing human-wildlife conflicts: A better-lit environment reduces the risk of unwanted encounters and conflicts with wildlife.
In the area of safety and security, solar lights offer particular benefits. They protect women and children from ‘predators’ who attack at night and steal livestock. By hanging a solar light outside the living area, the light deters potential intruders as they do not want to be detected.
Be inspired by the profound changes the “Watts On” program is making on this page. By providing solar light, we are not only striving to improve educational access, but we are also helping to sustainably improve the community’s quality of life. Because we believe everyone deserves access to safe, clean light.
