Responsible Business & Reporting
Our ongoing commitment to sustainability is outlined in the TPG Telecom Sustainability Report for 2021.
Human rights and modern slavery
Our Human Rights Policy sets out our commitment to respecting the internationally recognised human rights as set out in the International Bill of Human Rights and the principles concerning fundamental rights set out in the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. This commitment includes our acknowledgement of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and alignment with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
The policy applies to all employees, workers and suppliers of all entities controlled by TPG Telecom and is supported by our Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct.
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 2023 we published our third Modern Slavery Statement.
