Human rights and due diligence
As part of the international Qurate Retail Group, QVC Germany undertakes to always observe human rights and environmental due diligence obligations in an appropriate manner with the goal of preventing human rights and environmental risks, minimizing them and, if necessary, ending the violation of human rights-related or environmental obligations.
This commitment applies to both our own business unit and our global supply and value chains. Our goal is that in production and distribution of the products we sell, the environment is respected and protected in addition to human rights.
To this end, we align our business activities with the internationally recognized United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and are committed to the UN Charter of Human Rights as well as to the four basic principles and core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO).
Policy statement on QVC's human rights strategy
The responsible member of the management for this policy statement is the CEO of QVC Germany, Mr. Mathias Bork.
