WOW Human Rights and Ethical Practices Policy

Human Rights and Ethical Practices Policy

“As stewards of a planet that cradles both humanity and the diverse ecosystems we inhabit, our Human Rights and Ethical Practices Policy echoes the belief that the well-being of people and the environment are inseparable.

Rooted in the understanding that human rights extend hand in hand with ethical responsibility, we embrace a holistic approach to charity, emphasizing the interconnectedness of our actions with the broader fabric of nature.”

Introduction:

At WOW (World of Water) we are committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct and promoting human rights across all aspects of our operations. Recognizing the global impact of our activities, we strive to ensure that our actions align with the values of fairness, dignity, and respect for all individuals.

This proposed “Human Rights and Ethical Practices Policy” reflects our commitment to fostering a global community built on principles of justice, equality, and respect for human rights. While this policy is currently proposed and not adopted, we seek the support and feedback of our stakeholders to strengthen our collective impact on promoting ethical practices worldwide.

Supply Chain Integrity:

Supplier Selection:      We are dedicated to partnering with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical practices. When selecting suppliers, we prioritize those who demonstrate a commitment to fair labor practices, safe working conditions, and respect for human rights.

Transparency:      We advocate for transparency within our supply chain. We seek to collaborate with suppliers who openly disclose information about their labor practices, manufacturing processes, and adherence to international labor standards.

Labor Standards:

Forced Labor:      We reject any form of forced or involuntary labor.  Our suppliers must ensure that all workers are employed voluntarily and are free to terminate their employment at will.

Fair Compensation:

Living Wages:      We support fair and living wages for all workers. Our commitment extends to advocating for wages that cover basic needs and provide for a decent standard of living.

Environmental Responsibility:

Sustainable Practices:      We encourage environmentally responsible practices throughout our supply chain. This includes minimizing waste, reducing carbon footprints, and promoting sustainable sourcing of materials.

Continuous Improvement:

Monitoring and Evaluation:     We are dedicated to continuous improvement. We regularly monitor our supply chain, conduct assessments, and work collaboratively with our partners to address any identified ethical concerns.

Stakeholder Engagement:

Community Engagement:       We actively engage with local communities, workers, and stakeholders to ensure that our operations positively contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
