We believe in respecting basic human rights in everything we do.

We are committed to and support:

  • The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights
  • The United Nations Global Compact
  • United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
  • The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
  • The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

  • The International Labour Organisation Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
  • The International Labour Organisation Tripartite Declaration Concerning Multinational Corporations and Social Policy
  • The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

As signatory to the UN Global Compact and its 10 principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption, we submit a 'Communication on Progress' to the UN Global Compact office annually.

Our main responsibilities lie in a number of critical areas:

  • Respecting the human rights of our employees
  • Encouraging respect for human rights throughout our value chain, including customers and suppliers, and our approach to financial crime
  • Supporting human rights in our communities
  • Monitor our performance and ensure effective governance.
