Human Rights Statement
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets out the minimum standards that are necessary for individuals to live with dignity. The responsibility of business to uphold and support the rights of every individual is set out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
lootadeal is committed to ensuring our employees, business partners and communities that support our supply chain are treated with dignity and respect. We strive to ensure that our products and services are produced in a way that respects internationally recognized human rights.
Our businesses are premised on being the most customer-centric e-commerce destination with the ability to delight customers with amazing products, services and customer service. In addition to our indirect impact across the communities in which we operate, our direct impact extends to:
We unequivocally respect the human rights and protect the fundamental dignity of our workforce. We are committed to providing a respectful, safe and secure environment that is free from any form of human rights abuses. We expect everyone to behave in a way that supports this commitment wherever they work, and in all situations directly related to work.
Our commitment to Human Rights is guided by key international standards, namely, the UN Guiding Principles, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Guidelines for
Multinational Enterprises and the UN Global Compact. Our internal policies clearly define our approach to fair employment, health and safety, privacy and employee confidentiality.
We are committed to complying with applicable laws and to respect internationally recognised human rights, wherever we do business. Guided by the UN Global Compact, in the rare situation that national law conflicts with international standards, we comply with national law and seek ways to respect the principles of internationally recognised human rights.
In order to give effect to our commitment, we undertake to identify, prevent, and mitigate adverse human rights impacts. In this regard, we are continuously working to improve our approach. Our every business is tasked with deploying a variety of mechanisms to help inspect our business and make informed decisions at various points in the fulfilment of our day-to-day operations. Our employees review the performance and impact of our own programs and inspect activity in our supply chain.
We are aware that there is more to do. As a result, we committed to widening our perspective to better understand the potential human rights impacts of our business.
We have set out our approach to respecting and promoting principles that safeguard the rights of our workforce including the categories defined by the International Labour Organisation Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work which include,
- Fair employment, free from discrimination
- Dignity at work
- Privacy & employee confidentiality
- Zero tolerance on forced labour, including human trafficking
- Zero tolerance on child labour
- Equal Opportunity
- Health & safety
- Fair remuneration
- Freedom of association and collective bargaining
