Modern slavery statement
At Tower, our purpose is to inspire, shape and protect the future for the good of our team, customers and communities. We are a born and bred Kiwi insurer with a history spanning more than 150 years and have teams across the Pacific Islands and New Zealand.
Being there for people every step of the way is fundamental to everything we do, and our geographical footprint means we have a unique role to play in the communities we operate in. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of environmental, social and ethical behaviour and we have implemented governance practices that are compliant with New Zealand and Pacific regulations.
In staying true to our purpose, Tower does not tolerate modern slavery practices and we reject it in all forms. Tower complies with the requirements of the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018. We have a Code of Conduct Policy to protect and uphold our values, and processes to eliminate modern slavery from our supply chain in our New Zealand and Pacific operations.
Tower welcomes the New Zealand Government’s proposed new legislation that aims to achieve freedom, fairness and dignity in the operations and supply chains of entities and to address modern slavery and worker exploitation, both in New Zealand and internationally, and we are actively engaging in this legislative consultation process.
