Human rights

As part of our core principles, we are committed to respecting internationally recognized human rights in all our operations and throughout our value chain. This commitment is in line with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) and the International Labor Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work

Further support is provided by our human rights framework, which includes policies, a governance structure, a focus on salient issues, due diligence processes to identify and mitigate risks, a grievance mechanism and reporting on risks and actions. 
We strive to prevent the infringement of human rights and to remediate the possible impact on human rights resulting from our activities or products. We expect our business partners to apply equivalent principles and seek to actively support them in their implementation where needed.
