Human Rights Policy
Last updated: 1st July 2017
iTrust Ethics Ltd. are committed to respecting internationally recognised human rights in its operations globally.
Whilst respecting human rights in all of our activities, we focus our efforts in relation to those areas which are within our own direct influence. We do so by taking appropriate steps to:
a. understand and monitor through our due diligence processes the potential human rights impacts of our activities;
b. identify and assess, by conducting due diligence where appropriate on any actual or potential adverse human rights impacts with which we may be involved, either through our own activities or as a result of our business relationships, including but not limited to our partners;
c. consider practical responses to any issues raised because of our due diligence, within the relevant context;
d. engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised because of our due diligence, where appropriate; and
e. respect the human rights of our employees, in particular the prohibitions against forced and child labour, the freedom of expression and privacy, the right to engage in collective bargaining, and the elimination of discrimination in employment and occupation.
Where domestic laws and regulations conflict with internationally recognised human rights, iTrust Ethics will seek ways to honour them fully which does not place them in violation of domestic law.
