Communicating our UN Global Compact progress

Communicating our UN Global Compact progress

We have lodged our first annual ‘Communication on Progress’ report since becoming a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)* in 2010.

The report outlines the policies and processes we have in place in support of the UNGC’s 10 principles, as well as progress we have made over the past year to strengthen our approach to responsible business practices, particularly in relation to respecting human rights.

Since adopting our new human rights standards we have taken a number of steps to embed them across our business including:

  • integrating human rights into our decision-making processes, including training programs, across our business banking;
  • embedding our human rights standards into our product and service sourcing processes; and
  • Reviewing our group-wide ‘People policies’ to ensure global consistency in respecting human rights.

*The UNGC is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.  It is largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world, with more than 8700 signatories, including ANZ.
