LISTED fiber internet provider Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. said it has crafted a human rights policy aimed at protecting and upholding the rights of its customers and stakeholders.

Converge’s policy covers guidelines on protecting the rights of customers, employees as well as those of its business partners, and communities where it operates.

The policy also includes monitoring and reporting procedures to make sure that the provisions are implemented within the company.
