Crown marks Human Rights Day
As part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, Crown took the opportunity to recognise the responsibility and profound impact businesses can have on societal values.
On this significant occasion, Crown reinforced its dedication to being a force for positive change and to fostering a global culture that advocates for the rights of every individual. Starting this week, it is launching a training designed to sustain ongoing awareness of every employee of the Crown team globally.
This online course will be launched via Crown’s “Learning Hub” and will provide an understanding of Human Rights, as outlined in our Policy. Gradually rolled out in all our EMEA locations, it will be followed by the Americas and Asia Pacific in early 2024.
This initiative aims to enhance its leadership in opening up continuous dialogues with our communities, employees and stakeholders, creating a foundation of respect, trust and inclusion within Crown.
Aligned with international standards, Crown’s Human Rights Policy serves as our blueprint for ethical and inclusive leadership across its global operations.
Its senior executives actively endorse and champion the Human Rights Policy at every location, and they are responsible for promoting it, placing the people at the forefront and setting the tone for the organisation.
Crown maintains that it is critical it maintains formal standards and protocols, its Human Rights Policy goes beyond being a statement; it’s a commitment to creating a safe, welcoming and equitable workplace for everyone.
