Responsible Business & Reporting
Our ongoing commitment to sustainability is outlined in the TPG Telecom Sustainability Report for 2021.
Human rights and modern slavery
Our Code of Conduct, sets out our support for human rights consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and we respect those rights in conducting our operations in all locations.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct contains requirements with respect to human rights and modern slavery, aligned to the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the ten principles of the Global Compact.
We have a zero-tolerance policy against trafficking and activities related to trafficking. In 2020, working with our industry peers through the Telco Together Foundation, we signed an Australian Telecommunications Leadership Statement on Human Rights and Modern Slavery, committing to work cooperatively to eliminate modern slavery practices where they are identified and to share case studies of best practice.
That statement includes a set of Telecommunications Industry Modern Slavery Leadership Principles, drawing on best practice standards for business conduct set out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business Principles and Human Rights.
In 2021 we published our first Modern Slavery Statement
