Human rights and modern slavery

There is an increasing number of human rights abuses and incidents of modern slavery being reported around the world, and no country is immune. That is why we believe it is important to continue to review and strengthen our approach to human rights issues, including modern slavery, across our operations and supply chains.

Human rights

Protecting the human rights of all people everywhere is the foundation of a strong and inclusive society. And consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), businesses are expected to know and show how they are respecting human rights. We believe it is our responsibility to respect and uphold the human rights of our people and any other individuals we may have an impact on, either directly or indirectly.

We continue to embed human rights considerations into our processes and policies, and support the promotion of human rights for our people and with our clients, suppliers and communities.

Modern slavery

Modern slavery is a multi-faceted, complex issue with an immediate need for a global response. Now more than ever, business has a vital role in taking action to prevent modern slavery.

PwC Australia’s Joint Modern Slavery Statement outlines how we are identifying, monitoring and addressing the risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains, the standards we set in our supply chain, and how we aim to enhance our approach to these risks going forward.
