Human rights and modern slavery

Whilst 3i does not have, nor needs, a formal human rights policy, our policies are nevertheless consistent with internationally-proclaimed human rights principles.

In particular, 3i is an equal opportunities employer and opposes all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. We have clear grievance and disciplinary procedures, an employee assistance programme and an independent, external "whistle blowing" hotline service.

We try to ensure that the businesses we invest in comply (amongst other things) with all applicable employee-related laws and, where appropriate, that they work towards meeting relevant international standards (such as the ILO Fundamental Conventions) where these are more stringent.
