ACEPSI pursues all of its business activities with respect for human rights. The company adheres to the principles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other core conventions. The company strives to deal with business partners and agents who also aspire to achieve these standards.
- Children and Young Workers
ACEPSI does not employ children or support the use of child labour. We do encourage the creation of educational, training, work-experience or apprenticeship programmes tied to formal education for young people.
- Freedom of Engagement
We believe that people should work because they want or need to, not because they are forced to do so. We prohibit the use of prison labour, forcibly indentured labour, bonded labour, slavery, or servitude.
- Equality of Opportunity
We recognise, respect, and embrace the cultural differences found in the worldwide marketplace. Our goal is to attract, develop, promote, and retain the best people from all cultures and segments of the population, based on ability. We have zero tolerance for discrimination or harassment of any kind.
We ensure that compensation meets or exceeds the legal minimums and is competitive with industry standards. Our compensation philosophy is clearly communicated to employees and is in full compliance with all applicable laws.
- Freedom of Association
We recognize and respect the freedom of individual to join, or refrain from joining, legally authorised associations or organisations.
- Relationships with Indigenous People
Within the framework of our Values, we respect the cultures, customs and values of the people in communities where we operate and take into account their needs, concerns, and aspirations.
- Compliance Measures
Our Human Rights Policy is available on our internal website. This site is the primary means within the company to find information about ACEPSI and all its policies. We systematically assess our performance against best practice to continually improve our aspirations and performance. We educate and train our employees, particularly our managers, in the implications of our human rights policies.
