In 2017, we launched our Human Rights Charter (HRC) to provide clear guidelines on salient human rights issues within our operations. It also outlines our approach, scope and various commitments. We review and update our Human Rights Charter periodically to reflect our progress and welcome constructive feedback for us to improve.
We adhere to the Universal Declaration for Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We also actively report our human rights progress through our UK Modern Slavery Act Statement.
Our Social Performance as of December 2019
Breakdown of Workforce
To date, we have conducted structured assessments in almost 50% of our operations and have identified salient issues through our Human Rights Heat Map. Given the breadth of our operations, we recognised that we needed to implement improvement plans to mitigate risks through a prioritised approach that is unique to the people in locations we operate in.
From our Human Rights Due Diligence programme in Malaysia, the main issues identified are concerning the recruitment of migrant workers and retention of personal documents.
