With eight countries now EDGE certified, Technip remains the first
and only company in the energy industry to achieve this certification.

PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) and EDGE Certified
Foundation announce today that Technip entities in Australia, Malaysia,
United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and United States have been
certified to the EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) global
standard for gender equality in the workplace. These five additional
certifications follow those obtained last year by Technip
in Brazil, France and Italy
.

EDGE is the leading global assessment methodology and business
certification standard for gender equality applicable across all
industries and countries. This independent certification, verified by a
third party auditor and subsequently awarded by the EDGE Certified
Foundation, underlines Technip’s commitment to Gender Diversity as one
of the strategic priorities.

As stated by Thierry Pilenko, Technip Chairman & CEO: “We want to
offer all our employees the same opportunities because it is about
“doing the right thing”, one of our values. We also know that greater
gender diversity drives performance, global competitiveness and team
spirit. In today’s challenging business environment, it is even more
important to promote inclusive practices and make our commitment and
strategy a reality”.

To reach this achievement, Technip in Australia, Malaysia – including
the flexible pipe and umbilical manufacturing plant, United Kingdom,
United Arab Emirates and United States has undergone an extensive
analysis of each local entity’s policies, practices and data in terms of
gender equality. The study was complemented by a survey of employees in
each of these entities.

Katrine Sharp, Technip’s Vice President, Group Head of Sustainable
Development & Gender Diversity, highlighted: “It is a real
achievement to have increased the number of EDGE certified countries
from three to eight this year. This means that we have an excellent
picture of our current situation group-wide, clear measurement of
progress against existing action plans and new actions identified to
take our strategy forward. We are proud to be the first company to be
certified in Malaysia and UAE, and amongst the first in the UK, second
in Australia, second in the USA and still first in our sector. This is a
clear demonstration of our ongoing commitment to this journey”.

Since 2014, Technip has continued to make progress in promoting gender
diversity, putting in place more inclusive policies and practices such
as flexible working and continuing to raise awareness amongst managers
throughout the Group about what it means to be a gender-proactive leader.

“We welcome the impressive work and commitment to corporate gender
equality Technip continues to demonstrate on a global level and within
the energy sector. Gender-enlightened companies like Technip recognize
the benefits of developing a gender-balanced workforce and the positive
outcomes that these measures can create, such as an enhanced ability to
attract and retain diverse, high-quality talent and an inclusive company
culture,”
commented Aniela Unguresan, Co-Founder of EDGE Certified
Foundation.“Technip’s leadership and executive committee are
implementing the vision that will transform gender diversity into a
critical business success for their organization.”

About EDGE Certification

EDGE is the leading global assessment methodology and business
certification standard for gender equality. The EDGE assessment
methodology was developed by the EDGE Certified Foundation and launched
at the World Economic Forum in 2011. EDGE Certification has been
designed to help companies not only create an optimal workplace for
women and men, but also benefit from it. EDGE stands for Economic
Dividends for Gender Equality and is distinguished by its rigor and
focus on business impact. The methodology uses a business, rather than
theoretical approach that incorporates benchmarking, metrics and
accountability into the process. It assesses policies, practices and
numbers across five different areas of analysis: equal pay for
equivalent work, recruitment and promotion, leadership development
training and mentoring, flexible working and company culture. EDGE
Certification has received the endorsement of business, government and
academic leaders from around the world.
