Human rights and anti-discrimination
50Hertz does business based on the guidelines of the UN Global Compact. By applying these principles in the fields of human rights, terms of employment, the environment and the fight against corruption, we show our responsibility - not only along the value chain of our operational business¬, but also with regard to our service providers: among the aspects we pay attention to are, for instance, the methods used to manufacture our office furniture and work clothing. We strongly speak out against any discriminating acts in all professional situations.
As a European corporate group, we are open-minded towards transnational and cross-cultural learning processes.
As a company, 50Hertz has the social responsibility to help people with and without disabilities to obtain their first job on an equal basis.
In the scope of our company philosphy, we want to realise the objectives of the UN Disability Rights Convention. In our agreement to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (inclusion agreement), we have therefore established specific measures.
