Important: Impact 4 - Relevance 3
Human rights are rights that must absolutely not be violated under any circumstances. Beter Bed Holding has a policy in place that is based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, with which both staff and suppliers are required to comply.
At present, Beter Bed Holding reports on the topic of human rights as part of the checks of compliance with the codes of conduct at suppliers, as reported in section Procurement Practices. The CSR policy team will discuss whether and how reporting on this topic can be improved in future.
