Human Rights

Human Rights

A key element of TWE’s sustainability commitment is upholding human rights. We believe that human rights recognise the inherent value of each person and encompass the basic freedoms and protections that belong to every single one of us. Our business and people can only thrive when human rights are safeguarded. We endeavour to respect and uphold the human rights of our people and any other individuals we are in contact with, either directly or indirectly.

For more information, please take a look at our Human Rights Charter – which is also available in our core business languages – Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Japanese and Italian.
