ICTSI upholds the human rights of our employees and supply chain. We adopt a zero-tolerance approach to the use of servitude, compulsory labor or slavery in our operations in any country we operate in, or in any part of our supply chain. We support the Principles of the United Nations Global Compact and are committed to supporting the global fight against modern slavery.
Throughout our history, we have always known that whether it is our global presence or our role within a local community, the privilege of being within our host economies demands the highest ethical standards and a commitment to protecting the welfare, safety and human rights of our people, who are at the heart of our business. Our Global Principles on Human Capital
We have joined forces with the Child Protection Network Foundation, Inc. (CPN) and the Voice of the Free Foundation, Inc. (formerly the Visayan Forum) – two worthy organizations working to stop child abuse and modern slavery. The ICTSI Foundation has dedicated support to the CPN and its Women and Child Protection Unit (WPCU) to provide medical, mental health, social work and legal services to patients who have endured physical and/or sexual abuse. Part of ICTSI Foundation’s commitment includes supporting the provision of the CPN’s services as well as shouldering select operating costs of an estimated 1,700 patients. With the Foundation’s support, the CPN has begun to provide training for the establishment of more WCPUs. Meanwhile, ICTSI’s support of the Voice of the Free Foundation has helped fund the VF’s Center of Hope in Antipolo, a shelter for exploited and abused children to receive educational support, livelihood skills training, healing and treatment. The ICTSI Foundation’s donation will go towards the operating costs of the Center of Hope and further support the rescue missions and advocacy programs of the VF.
