sustainable supply chain
As a signatory to the UN Global Compact since 2011, Swissport is committed to upholding the highest human rights standards and combatting all forms of human rights violations.
We use risk management and regulatory compliance solutions to screen potential suppliers regarding human rights, environmental criteria or legal compliance before engaging with them. We also carry out additional research, investigations or audits to ensure that potential suppliers comply with our standards.
We are adamant that human rights are inherent to all human beings, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, political ideology, disability or any other status and include such rights as freedom of opinion and expression without discrimination. Through various policy and certification stipulations, we require our suppliers to fully comply with the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Core Conventions as well as to commit to non-complicity in any human rights abuses. At Swissport, we also acknowledge the legitimate role of trade unions and employee representatives and have established appropriate mechanisms to enable the effective representation of employees at our suppliers.

The Swissport Code of Conduct is a set of principles and corporate rules that define our ethical standards. The goal of the Code of Conduct is to protect Swissport and its staff, as well as third parties, society and our stakeholders from harm, which may be triggered by unethical or unlawful behavior. All Swissport employees must comply with the Code of Conduct.
