We promote a culture of respect for human rights in our workforce and in all of our business relationships.

We demonstrate this through a number of key programs and initiatives.

As well as being a signatory to the UN Global Compact, NAB has committed to uphold a number of protocols addressing human rights. These include:

  • the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises;
  • the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights; and
  • the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Our People policies and ESG Risk Principles emphasise the requirement for all employees to respect human rights and to take care to ensure that we’re not complicit in human rights abuses. We incorporate the need to respect human rights within our broader business and risk policies and due diligence processes – in particular within procurement and lending.
