Modern Slavery Act

Since the founding of Unicharm, we have always believed in respecting human rights, as seen in the prominent mention of respect for human rights and a mutually respectful human perspective in the Unicharm Group Charter of Action and our Human Resource Philosophy.

Various human rights issues exist throughout the world and because special attention must be paid to protecting human rights in global business based on international human rights standards, we uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly.

In 2017 we formulated the Unicharm Group Policy on Human Rights and demonstrate our continued efforts to fulfill our responsibility to respect human rights in all of our activities. Furthermore, we distribute our human rights policy to all Group employees as part of the Unicharm Group Charter of Action.

We will not tolerate child labour and forced or compulsory labour and we will never discriminate against people based on nationality, race, religion, gender, sexual prejudice, age, family background, disability, or any other factor. We will guarantee freedom of association and freedom of collective bargaining and we will confirm the reduction of excessive work hours and uphold the right to minimum wages.

Unicharm Australasia, formerly known as Australian Pacific Paper Products, has been a leader within the Australasian market over the last 30-plus years providing high-quality products and services across the disposable hygiene market. We operate our head office out of Mentone, Victoria with distribution centres across Australia and New Zealand bringing Unicharm’s 60 years of global experience and technology.
