Every human being is entitled to basic dignity, needs, and freedoms. This includes basic human rights but also labour and employee welfare as well as diversity, equality and inclusion. 

Inclusive growth and just transition entails practices and processes that not only pay heed to relevant regulations and policies, but also deliver social value through job creation and through governance and initiatives placing equity, diversity and inclusion at the very centre of the strategy.
