Respecting and promoting human rights

Human rights 

Awareness of human rights abuses has grown significantly in recent years. Consumers increasingly want to know about human rights in the supply chains of companies they buy from, and what those businesses are doing to address abuses. We are very clear that human rights abuses have no place in our supply chains. Instead, we believe our business benefits by having a strong and happy worker base throughout our supply chain that makes each tier of that chain more stable and secure.

Our approach

The challenges involved in addressing human rights in supply chains are often complex and not easy to address. We cannot tackle these alone, and so work in collaboration with key partners to identify challenges and solutions aligned with supporting the Sustainable Development Goals. We believe that our business benefits by having a strong and happy worker base throughout our supply chain that makes each tier of that chain more stable and secure.
