ISPT’S HUMAN RIGHTS POLICY
We maintain a ‘do no harm’ investment and operating philosophy, including in relation to human rights. Our formal human rights policy documents our commitment to respecting the rights of our employees, contractors, customers, communities, suppliers and all other relevant stakeholders. The policy is reviewed every two years and we identify and appropriately respond to our human rights risks.
Compliance of partners and suppliers
Our human rights policy applies to all directors, employees and independent contractors of ISPT. We work across our value chain to promote continuous improvement and expect our business and joint venture partners to do the same – both within their operations and with their own business suppliers. We comply with all applicable Australian laws and, where parts of our value chain operate overseas, we encourage them to follow the same approach.
Transparency of actions
ISPT is committed to transparency around our human rights actions and recognise that our stakeholders will seek meaningful information on our performance. Our communications will include statements under the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018.
We’ll continue to collaborate with industry peers and other businesses and stakeholders to drive continuous improvement across the industry and formulate the best approaches to managing human rights risks.
We respect all internationally recognised human rights as set in the International Bill of Human Rights (consisting of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) and the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
