Human Rights at Sea and AFEX, a global payment and risk management solutions specialist, have announced the first AFEX Maritime Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy which has been jointly developed by the two organizations.

David Hammond, HRAS Founder said: “The introduction by AFEX of their first Maritime CSR policy reflecting the HRAS aims and objectives is a significant step forwards in bringing human rights, as part of the growing maritime human element business area, to the forefront of a globally recognized payment and risk management business.”

AFEX states that it is proud to have an extensive CSR program that includes a strong commitment to the promotion of raising standards of human rights in the maritime environment. “This undertaking is not entered into lightly. It carries with it a requirement to apply only the highest moral, ethical and business standards. It is both implicit and explicit that the company has no dealings with any clients that practice any form of human rights abuse either directly or indirectly due to a lack of due diligence checks,” states the company.
