A step further in the company’s commitment to respecting human rights and equal opportunities
MAPFRE has adopted the UN Standards of Conduct for Business for Tackling Discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, & Intersex (LGBTI) People.
By adopting these standards, MAPFRE is committing to respecting the human rights of LGBTI colleagues, clients and members of the community at all times; eliminating discrimination against LGBTI employees and supporting LGBTI personnel in the workplace; preventing discrimination against LGBTI clients, providers and distributors; and defending the human rights of LGBTI people in the communities where they work.
The Standards of Conduct are based on the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Global Compact, and provide guidance to companies on how to fulfill their responsibility to respect everyone’s rights — specifically, in this case, the rights of the LGBTI community.
By adopting these Standards of Conduct, MAPFRE has taken a step further in its commitment to human rights, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 10 — Reduced inequalities), diversity and equal opportunities, this time in relation to sexual orientation.
This commitment to human rights is reflected in MAPFRE’s Institutional, Business and Organizational Principles and, expressly, in its Code of Ethics and Conduct and prevailing Corporate Social Responsibility Policy.
