Human Rights

Respect and protection of human rights are part of our culture.

At Indra, we are committed to respecting the dignity and rights of all people. And we work proactively to prevent any abuse related to our activity or that of our collaborators.

This commitment is reflected in our Code of Ethics, in our Human Rights Policy (see below) and in different internal regulations and procedures. In addition, we extend it to the entire value chain, from suppliers to customers.

The protection of human rights falls under the supervision of the Board of Directors, through the Sustainability Committee. It is responsible for promoting and monitoring the implementation of our ESG Plan 2024-26, which includes specific objectives in this area.

It is important to highlight that, even though Indra manufactures and provides support systems for Defense and Security, the involvement of the company in the provision of support systems and services for conventional weapons amounts to less than 1% of the total revenues of the group.

Our due dilligence

Our due diligence system is based on the "Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights" of the United Nations (UN).

In addition, our frames of reference are the International Bill of Human Rights, the Declaration of the International Labor Organization and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, to which Indra has been a signatory since 2004.


Human Rights Policy

In 2020, we updated our Human Rights Policy to better align it with our risks and to be able to more proactively manage to address them.




We work to develop technology with a positive impact on people and society.



We have internal policies and processes in place to promote respect for labor rights, avoid discriminatory practices and promote a respectful and encouraging work environment.



We strive to promote human rights in the societies in which we operate.


Supply Chain

We require suppliers to comply with our ethical commitments included in our Code of Ethics, our Human Rights Policy and our Supplier Sustainability Policy. We have a due dilligence procedure in place to ensure compliance of our suppliers with our sustainabilty requirements.

Evolution of Impacts

Our due diligence includes identifying and prioritizing the direct and indirect impacts of our activities on human rights.

Grievance mechanism

Through our Direct Channel, any person can raise their doubts and report any irregularity or infringement related to our activities that affect people's rights.

All communications are handled in accordance with the principles of confidentiality, respect, completeness, privacy and security, with full respect for the rights and guarantees in the process, both in the analysis and verification of the communications received and in the resolution and, where appropriate, adoption of corrective measures when necessary.

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

At Indra, we have a zero-tolerance approach to child labor and forced labor and are fully committed to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking in our operation and supply chain.
