Having joined the UN Global Compact, the A1 Telekom Austria Group is committed to implementing fundamental requirements in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and combating corruption. This commitment has been acknowledged by being integrated into the Austrian subsidiary’s Terms and Conditions, for example.
In some countries in which the A1 Telekom Austria Group operates, national laws can make it difficult to ensure that human rights are respected absolutely. Where national law diverges from the A1 Telekom Austria Group’s commitment to human rights and sets a lower standard, the Group always endeavors to achieve the higher standard, though the wellbeing of employees is the top priority. In the event of a conflict, the A1 Telekom Austria Group applies national law, at the same time attempting to respect human rights as much as possible.
