We recognise our responsibility to respect the human rights of every individual who works for us – either as an employee, through our supply chain or within one of our communities close to our operations – as set out in the International Bill of Human Rights, and the eight fundamental conventions on which the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights are based.
If any of our employees have concerns about human rights issues within the business and they feel they are unable to raise concerns through normal reporting lines, they can raise concerns through the Speak Up platform, which is our independent whistleblowing hotline and portal. Our modern slavery statement can also be found here.
