Human rights

Respecting human rights


We aim to uphold fundamental human rights principles across our business and within our supply chain while at the same time respecting local cultures, national laws and the norms and traditions that exist in our different markets.

More about the issues

Our response

We are a signatory to the UN Global Compact and recognise the UN Guiding Principles on business and human rights. We support the UN Millennium Development Goals and work proactively to prevent discrimination and breaches of human rights within our sphere of influence. We recently rolled out a revised approach to managing human rights risks, which helps our businesses to identify and mitigate any significant risks within their operations and value chains.
