Our policies and practices reflect corporate governance initiatives that are compliant with all relevant laws and regulations, both within Travelport and for our business partners.

 

Supplier adherence to Travelport values

Travelport maintains external business partner policies that require its business partners to ensure that the employment of workers adheres to all applicable laws and regulations, to make every endeavor to be fully aware of human rights issues, such as human trafficking and slavery, and to conduct itself in a manner that will foster respect, dignity and equality for all.

 

Risk assessment

We have adopted a risk-based approach and initiated a rolling program of modern slavery risk assessment of our suppliers to better focus our activities.  As a result, we have identified key business areas where employees may come into contact with resources working for suppliers and may come into contact with people affected by modern slavery and human trafficking.
