We want to do what is right
In Dzanga-Sangha and at WWF, people are at the heart of what we do.
Upholding respect for, and ensuring the safety and rights of employees, partners and the communities we work in, is core to our organisation.
Any breach of that should be reported without fear of reprisal and every person we work with should feel empowered to safely do so.
We are committed to allowing any individual to safely raise concerns of inappropriate conduct by employees of WWF, its partners and people associated with WWF/DSPA, without fear of retaliation.
What is inappropriate conduct, or misconduct?
Inappropriate conduct, or misconduct, includes a wide range of personal actions or behaviors in the workplace or in the performance of WWF/DSPA duties, including but not limited to discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, bullying, intimidation, verbal or physical assault, child abuse, abuse of power, theft, fraud, bribery including kickbacks, violation of personal data confidentiality, or any other violation of internal policy that creates legal, financial, or reputational risk to WWF/DSPA.
It also includes negligence or failure to take action by management that may encourage such conduct.
What misconduct should be reported?
Misconduct by a WWF employee; employees of a WWF/DSPA partner or implementing organization; WWF/DSPA management team, consultants, volunteers and interns must be reported.
In some cases, misconduct that occurs outside of WWF/DSPA’s operations or workplace but has a negative impact on WWF/DSPA’s reputation, may be construed as misconduct under this policy.
Who can report?
Anyone who has experienced or witnessed inappropriate behavior against a WWF/DSPA or non-WWF member by a WWF/DSPA employee or contractor should report it.
The behavior in question may occur in the WWF/DSPA office or in the course of WWF/DSPA activities (e.g., in the field, at meetings, etc.).
