Vodafone Green Bond Framework
As part of its commitment to sustainability, Vodafone Group Plc has designed a Green Bond Framework under which Vodafone can issue Green Bonds. This document acts as a framework for what projects are eligible under the use of proceeds, how they are selected, the management of proceeds and reporting. Sustainalytics, a provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) research and analysis, have provided a second party opinion on Vodafone’s framework.
Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
We are committed to taking appropriate steps to ensure that everyone who works for Vodafone – in any capacity, anywhere in the world – benefits from a working environment in which their fundamental rights and freedoms are respected. In our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement, we report on our efforts to prevent modern slavery in line with the requirements of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015).
Conflict Minerals Report
We are members of, and involved in, industry initiatives such as the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) in order to improve transparency in supply chains. If we can influence the design or manufacture of products, we try to ensure that they do not contain metals and minerals that fund conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We provide further details of our approach to this issue in our statutory Conflict Minerals Report.
Tax and our total economic contribution
We are one of the only communications companies in the world to report our total taxation and economic contribution to society voluntarily for each country in which we have a legal entity. Our disclosures are made on a country-by-country actual cash paid basis.Tax and our contribution to economies
