Respect for human rights is a fundamental part of The Hartford’s character and is core to our business. Doing the right thing and respecting the human rights of our employees, customers, stakeholders and those in our communities is embedded in our culture, policies, business systems and processes.
The frameworks provided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights inform, influence and help shape ongoing improvements to business practices in our own operations, as well as those of our suppliers and business partners. We’re committed to advancing transparency in our work and increased disclosure and engagement in support of human rights.
We’re proud to have been recognized for our continued efforts by the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index for the 11th year and by being named a World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, 11 times.1
