The observance of human rights and labour rights is a key element in the conduct of Interpump Group business activities.
As evidence of such a commitment, the Code of Ethics establishes the protection of human rights, not tolerating any form of forced labour or exploitation of child labour, in strict accordance with the International Conventions on human rights, as well as the Italian regulations, and any current and local applicable law.
In connection with such matters, Interpump Group S.p.A. adopted the Human Rights Guidelines in February 2020 by which rules and behaviours are disciplined with the aim to prevent:
- discriminatory practices in any form or based on race, religious belief, age, ethnic origin, civil status, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy or on any other personal condition;
- exploitation of labour through threats, intimidation, punishment, reprisals or physical violence, or achieved by the serious restriction of personal freedoms;
- exploitation of child labour.
The Human Rights Guidelines also promotes the principles of dignity, freedom and equality, the protection of working conditions and union rights, as well as the safeguard of health and safety on workplaces.
To the employees and to whom act in the name and/or on behalf of Interpump Group companies, as well as consultants, vendors or other third parties, including customers, it is requested the utmost commitment to respect human rights and principles set out in the Guidelines.
