A fair workplace

We respect the fundamental rights of our employees, aiming to create an open, inclusive and positive work environment. Our policies on human rights and equal opportunities are widely communicated and are integrated into management training programmes. In addition, our Supplier Guiding Principles program sets out similar expectations for the work environments of our suppliers

Human rights

Our human rights policy requires that we uphold the UN Global Compact and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Child labor is expressly prohibited and appropriate checks are made during recruitment. Our employees and managers are trained in the implications of human rights in day-to-day business and we monitor our performance

Equal opportunities

We are committed to providing an inclusive workplace where all of our employees are treated fairly and equally. Ourequality of opportunity policyprotects against discrimination and ensures equality of opportunity and fair treatment for all.

Employee relations

We respect our employees’ right to freedom of association: to join or not to join trade unions and to engage in collective bargaining. We consult employees, unions and our European Works Council about major business developments and issues of shared concern
