SITIP SOCIAL POLICY
In current global market and economic conditions, companies become institutions that increasingly create welfare and play a key role in the integration of the economic – social – environmental system, by enhancing their relationships with employees, social partners, the local community, consumers, public authorities and other stakeholders. SITIP intends to continue and improve the development of its activities in an ethical and socially responsible manner, taking the SA8000 standard as a reference, with the aim of controlling risk situations, contributing positively to the satisfaction of workers, to improve its reputation towards customers and the local community.
SITIP strives to pursue these objectives by also ensuring a commitment to ongoing compliance with current national and local legislation on social responsibility and work ethics, international treaties and guidelines, including the resolutions of international bodies such as the ILO – International Labour Organization and the UN – United Nations Organization. Compliance with the requirements of the SA 8000 standard is the result of the systematic and prompt efforts that SITIP has been undertaking for years to:
- Comply with National and International legislative requirements and commitments entered into by the company with stakeholders, which are applicable to the Work and all activities connected with it;
- Comply with applicable national laws, laws applicable to their field of activity, to observe the principles of the ILO (International Labour Organisation) Treaties, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of Children, the UN Convention to Remove All Forms of Discrimination against Women;
- Comply with the requirements of the SA 8000 standard with a view to continuous improvement;
- Foster a Culture of Respect for People and Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental Protection;
- Eliminate the use of child labour;
- Eliminate all possible forms of discrimination, whether on the grounds of nationality or ethnicity, gender, religion, political or trade union membership, sexual orientation, disability, marital status or other;
- Promote the freedom of association and participation of workers in trade union organisations and collective bargaining;
- Ensure the control of suppliers, through selection, qualification and monitoring procedures; requesting a commitment from them to comply with the requirements of the SA 8000 standard and preparing a multi-year action plan on them; support suppliers that are not in line with the standard, in order to improve the level of their performance so that it reaches acceptable levels according to the requirements of the standard.
