Our Social Responsibility
Benefitz DMA Policy Statement on FSC Core Labour Requirements.
Benefitz is committed to complying with the FSC® core labour standards as published in the FSC-STD-40-004. A significant portion of the FSC® standard is already specified by New Zealand law under the Employment Relations Act, 2000. As citizens and employers, we are committed to these laws.
The core labour standards, as declared by FSC®, form not only the basis of our work from a legal point of view but also a moral and ethical point of view.
They represent the minimum requirements for a healthy and functional work environment. There are internationally recognised labour standards that cover fundamental principles and rights at work: freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining; the elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labour; the effective abolition of child labour; and the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Benefitz is a socially responsible employer and is aware of our responsibility towards our employees and partners in all these areas.
We are proud of our company culture that fully recognises the importance of compliance with these fundamental legal requirements in the workplace. To comply with these rules, we monitor any legislation changes in New Zealand and ensure we adapt and comply with all requirements as required by law.
The responsibility for the implementation of this policy statement lies with the senior management of Benefitz DMA Ltd.
