We believe that we have a responsibility to respect, support, and uphold fundamental human rights as expressed in the Universal Declaration for Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We are also committed to fostering an inclusive environment where everyone is treated with respect, trust and dignity.
The overarching building blocks of our approach to uphold human rights are as follows:
Ensuring that our operations do not impede on the rights of people and their cultural values.
Supporting stakeholders in making their voices heard and build their own sustainable future.
Adopting a precautionary approach and safeguarding vulnerable populations and ecosystems.
Listening to our stakeholders and maintain dialogue and consultation on our performance.
Going beyond risk minimisation and impact mitigation to create a net positive footprint.
Sharing our journey and be transparent about our performance and objectives.
In our effort to operationalise business and human rights, we understand that it is also important for our people to have the necessary knowledge and awareness. Various training programmes and workshops are currently being carried out to ensure that the different levels of the workforce have the correct capacity in terms of human rights.
Fair Employment Practices
Implementing fair employment practices across the Group ensures that our workforce is diverse and employees’ overall productivity and creativity is enhanced. We embrace diversity and inclusion through initiatives such as the integration of knowledge and experience across our Divisions and subsidiaries, as well as the implementation of recruitment practices that promote integration of local talents.
