Human Rights and Modern Slavery

Wherever we operate, we respect human rights and commit to avoiding human rights harm. We are committed to adhering to internationally recognised human rights norms and principles to ensure dignity and equality for all our employees, customers, communities and suppliers.

We are guided by internationally recognised human rights standards and guiding principles, including:

  • International Bill of Human Rights which consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;
  • the International Labour Organisation’s eight core Conventions; and
  • the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

In 2020, we announced our support for the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

We reject any form of slavery, including forced or child labour, and take active measures to prevent our involvement in human rights harm through our supply chain relationships. 

This commitment is detailed in our Group Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement and in our Group Code of Ethics and Conduct.
