humane and dignified

humane and dignified is from a company brochure. The sentence is:

We want to buy products from companies where the employees work at least under humane and hopefully under dignified conditions.

I don't see a difference between those two words. So can I just ignore one of them?

Thank you very much in advance!

    I think you can, Uncle BBB. The exact meaning of words like "humane" and "dignified" varies among people who use those words. For that reason, I think it's safe to assume that the entire sentence means that the company wants to buy products from other companies that treat their employees well.
