Protecting fundamental rights
At DSV, we believe that human rights are fundamental and should be protected at all times, as established under the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Conventions and Recommendations. We set high standards for our business through our commitment to complying with applicable human rights and labour law regulations. As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, DSV supports and is committed to complying with applicable human rights, labour laws and regulations. We are committed to adhering to the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Children’s Rights and Business Principles.
DSV is committed to ensuring that modern slavery or human trafficking do not occur in any part of our business or supply chains. In the DSV Code of Conduct, the DSV Supplier Code of Conduct and the DSV Human Rights Policy, we address this topic and accentuate our stance on human and labour rights. DSV has also developed a Human Rights Programme to further ensure the protection of our employees in our own operations and throughout our supply chains.
While the Human Rights Policy reiterates our stance against modern slavery and human trafficking, it also encourages our employees to report concerns, suspicion or knowledge of any instance of human trafficking, forced labour or debt servitude.

DSV publishes an annual Modern Slavery Act Statement in accordance with the UK Modern Slavery Act as well as other similar reporting requirements.
