At Allianz, we regard the respect for human rights as a minimum standard for responsible business.
Allianz is committed to:
- supporting and respecting the protection of international human rights
- ensuring that Allianz is not complicit in human rights abuses.
The human rights that Allianz is committed to respecting are those agreed by governments in
- the International Bill of Human Rights: this consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its two Optional Protocols.
- the core International Labor Organization (ILO) Conventions: these include the prohibition of child labor and forced labor; freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining; occupational health and safety; and the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Allianz has been a member of the U.N. Global Compact (UNGC) since 2002 and uses the UNGC principles, including protection of human rights and adherence to labor standards, as guide for its business activities.
