ISPG Human Rights Policy
Committed to Human Rights
ISPG’s Human Rights Policy is guided by International Human Rights principles encompassed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the United Nations Global Compact and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
Compliance with the ILO’s core labour standards is mandatory for ISPG.
This includes the prevention of child and forced labour, adherence to the principle of non-discrimination in the workplace, the right of freedom of association and assembly, and the right to collective bargaining.
This applies provided national law does not explicitly prohibit adherence to the ILO core labour standards. In such cases, we develop innovative approaches to promote the adoption of the principles that form the foundation of these international standards.
We are committed to comply with local laws and regulations protecting human rights in our activities. Where local laws and regulations are not fully consistent with the principles of internationally recognized human rights, we will seek ways to advance those principles in a manner respectful of local requirements.
