Contributing To A Better Society

Human Rights

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. 
The overarching building blocks in our approach to embed human rights within our organisation are as follows:

  • Respect - Ensuring that our operations do not impede on the rights of people and their cultural values.
  • Protect - Adopting a precautionary approach and safeguarding vulnerable populations and ecosystems.
  • Enhance - Going beyond risk minimisation and impact mitigation to create a net positive footprint.
  • Empower - Supporting stakeholders in making their voices heard and building their own sustainable future.
  • Engage - Listening to our stakeholders and maintain dialogue and consultation on our performance.
  • Disclose - Sharing our journey and being transparent about our performance and objectives.
