At Avista, we put those we serve at the center of everything we do. For over 134 years, we’ve been committed to delivering energy safely, responsibly and affordably.  

Our people and our culture have always been our greatest strengths - united in our diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. The unwavering commitment of our employees makes us stronger as a company. 

We conduct business ethically and honestly. We act with integrity because it matters - our success depends on the reputation of our company and that of our employees. How we do our jobs is just as important as what we do.

Avista’s Code of Conduct (Code) defines our culture, reflects our values and outlines the behaviors that are expected of all of us. The Code provides a common framework to help guide our actions - how we interact with others, conduct our business and serve our customers and communities. 

Avista depends on each of us to speak up when there is a concern. We know it takes courage to come forward. You can be confident our leadership team is listening, and your concerns will be handled promptly and appropriately. If you are uncertain of what to do in a situation, speak to your leader, any Avista leader, a Human Resources Manager, or a member of the Ethics and Compliance or Legal departments. A Confidential Hotline (1-877-861-6690 or is also available for reporting. Any form of retaliation against anyone who reports a concern will not be tolerated.
