Diversity and Inclusivity Commitment

We respect, and appreciate differences in acquired diversity, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, and religion. We celebrate and respect individuals for their distinct talents, skills and abilities and recognize that the varied contributions of a diverse and inclusive workforce enhance benefits to stakeholders and the communities in which we work.

Human Rights Commitment

We have a legal and moral responsibility to support and respect internationally proclaimed human rights. We recognize that our business activities can have potential adverse impact on human rights and seek opportunities to make positive contributions towards the fulfillment of human rights through and within our business activities. We uphold the human rights principles within the United National Global Compact (UNGC) and benchmark our compliance to human rights standards primarily through adherence to domestic laws as these conform to international standards.

We are in the process of implementing a formal mechanism, including a grievance mechanism for stakeholders and Indigenous communities to submit and resolve complaints related to human rights matters.
