Respecting human rights

In a world undergoing radical technological changes, the digital revolution in particular considers the future of production and consumption models, privacy protection and the trust needed during economic and social exchanges.

For an international group like Orange, this involves a virtuous approach to relations with employees and suppliers in the countries where the Group operates. But it also requires vigilance at all times to respond to authority demands in accordance with Orange values and international regulations.

The Orange Essentials 2020 strategy aims to offer a unique customer experience; it involves a strong commitment to the company’s major challenges. This is also the approach of our Human Inside philosophy; the human is the start and end point of all our activities.

For many years, Orange has been strongly involved in the Human Rights field. In 2000, Orange was one of the first corporations to sign the United Nations Global Compact. In addition to the general framework of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions, Orange complies with the United Nations Guiding Principles on business and Human Rights established in 2011.

Group actions with regards to the respect of basic human rights are focused on 3 main lines:

  • Relations with employees
  • Relations with suppliers and subcontractors
  • Privacy and freedom of expression
