The purpose of adopting DeA Capital’s Human Rights Policy is, on the one hand, to publicly express the Company’s and the DeA Capital Group’s intention to respect, defend and promote the protection of human rights, and, on the other hand, to integrate these principles into its business and in all its relationhips.
The introduction of the Policy derives from the DeA Capital Group’s conviction, through its ESG Committee, of the necessity and responsibility to promote respect for fundamental Human Rights in all possible ways and locations.
HUMAN RIGHTS POLICY
DeA Capital adhered to the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative that encourages companies around the world to adopt sustainable policies in compliance with corporate social responsibility and to publish the results of the actions undertaken. Through a “Letter of Commitment” to the Global Compact sent to UN Secretary General António Guterres, the Group has formally adhered to the Ten Universal Principles (https://www.unglobalcompact.org/what-is-gc/mission/principles) related to human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, to promote the values of sustainability in the long term through political actions, business practices, social and civil behavior. Founded in 1999 by the United Nations, the Global Compact is today an international network formed by companies, governments, institutions and organizations, aimed at sharing, promoting and implementing principles and values for the adoption of common policies in the name of sustainability.
