One of our business values is that we treat people how they want to be treated. Our responsibilities for the welfare of people goes far beyond those we employ directly. We want everyone who works for or with Tesco to have their human rights upheld and we know our customers, colleagues and suppliers do too.

We help create jobs and opportunities for people and communities across the world. We aim to ensure that all the jobs we help create, directly and through our supply chain, are decent, fair and safe and that human rights are always respected. We take a zero-tolerance approach to any breach of human rights and are committed to upholding the standards of the internationally recognised Ethical Trade Initiative Base Code.
