Tele Radio enforces social and environmental standards
Tele Radio believes in protecting the environment and does this by encouraging the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste material by itself and vendor partners to the greatest extent that is possible and suitable for the stated business. Tele Radio further encourages its vendor partners to reduce excess packaging using recycled and non-toxic materials whenever possible. Emissions from any place of business shall be reduced so as to minimise harm to the environment and there shall be a plan in force on how to further reduce the risk of emissions in the future.
Safe workplace environment
Tele Radio maintains a safe, clean, healthy and productive environment for its associates and expects the same from its vendor partners. Vendor partners shall furnish employees with safe and healthy working conditions. Factories working with Tele Radio merchandise or products shall provide adequate medical facilities, fire exits, safety equipment, well-lit and comfortable workstations, and clean restrooms. Tele Radio will not accept business with any vendor partner which provides an unhealthy or hazardous work environment or which utilises mental or physical disciplinary practices.
Tele Radio recognises that cultural differences and standards exist and in our various countries; however, Tele Radio believes that the terms and conditions of employment shall be based on an individual’s ability to perform the job, not on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs. Tele Radio requires itself and vendor partners to uphold the basic principles of human rights and not discriminate against employees, on the basis of race, colour, national origin, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation or political opinion.
Child labour not tolerated
Tele Radio does not tolerate the use of child labour in the design or manufacture of products it buys or sells. Tele Radio will not accept products from vendor partners that utilise any manner of child labour in the contracting, subcontracting or other relationships for the manufacture of their products of services.
