Without strong governance, our human rights policy would be just words.
A BT Board sub-committee (called the Digital Impact & Sustainability Committee) oversees progress on our human rights programme.
Day-to-day our human rights team works on integrating the UN Guiding Principles and other human rights commitments into our business. This includes training and supporting the people who bring our policy to life across the company. The team reports to the Board every quarter. Our Group Corporate Affairs Director (a member of our Executive Committee) makes decisions on any human rights matters that can’t be fixed at an operational level.
You can download our human rights framework for more on how we manage human rights issues. And every year we give a human rights update in our Annual Report and Digital Impact and Sustainability Report (as well as our Modern Slavery Statement).
