Purpose and scope

The establishment of this Statement as a robust reinforcement of our management’s and employees’ unwavering commitment to uphold human rights in a reasonable and lawful manner. Through this Statement, we aim not only to foster a culture of respect and protection of human rights but also to communicate our steadfast dedication to this cause across the Company and its subsidiaries. It stands as a powerful tool in our collective efforts to ensure that human rights remain at the forefront of our values and actions.

For the better understanding of this Statement, key terms are defined:

  • Human rights are fundamental entitlements and protections that inherently belong to every individual by virtue of their humanity. These rights are intended to ensure dignity, equality, and freedom for all, regardless of factors such as race, gender, nationality, religion, or socioeconomic status. Human rights provide a framework for promoting and safeguarding the well-being of individuals and communities.
  • Violence is the action or omission of the person(s) when another person(s) is subjected to intentional physical, mental, sexual, economic impact related to work, as a result of which the person(s) experiences or may experience non-material or material damage.
  • Harassment refers to unwanted conduct which occurs with the purpose, or effect, of violating the dignity of a person, and of creating an intimidating, hostile, humiliating or offensive environment on grounds of sex, race, nationality, citizenship, language, origin, social status, belief, convictions or views, age, sexual orientation, disability, ethnic origin or religion.
  • Child labour refers to the employment or engagement of children in work that is harmful to their physical, mental, social, or educational development. It involves children performing work that is often exploitative, hazardous, and interferes with their right to education and a healthy upbringing.
  • Modern slavery refers to a range of exploitative practices in which individuals are subjected to various forms of coercion, deception, and abuse, leading to their control and exploitation by others. These practices strip individuals of their freedom, dignity, and basic human rights. Modern slavery encompasses several forms, including such as human trafficking, forced, bonded, or indentured labour.
  • Human trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring, or receipt of people through force, deception, or coercion for the purpose of exploitation. This can include sexual exploitation, forced labour, and other forms of involuntary servitude.
  • Forced, bonded or indentured labour involve individuals being compelled to work against their will, often through physical or psychological coercion. They are denied the ability to leave their work situation, and their freedom is severely restricted.
  • Discrimination refers to the unjust or prejudicial treatment of individuals or groups based on certain characteristics or attributes, such as race, gender, age, religion, nationality, disability, or other protected traits. It involves treating people differently and unfairly, often resulting in negative consequences for the targeted individuals or groups.
  • Freedom of association is the right of individuals to come together voluntarily to form associations, unions, or groups without undue interference or restriction from the government or other entities. This right allows workers and individuals to join to collectively voice their concerns, advocate for better working conditions, and protect their rights.
  • Collective bargaining refers to the process by which workers, through their chosen representatives (often labour unions), negotiate with employers or management to establish terms and conditions of employment, such as wages, working hours, benefits, and workplace policies.

Fundamental human rights:

  • Violence and harassment

We strictly prohibit any form of violence or harassment in the Company through the implementation of our Violence and Harassment Policy, in which we reject any act (or omission) of the Company’s employees aimed at causing physical, social, or psychological harm to another employee or group of employees in order to ensure the psychological safety of the employees at the work environment.

  • Child Labour and Modern slavery including Human Trafficking, Forced, Bonded or Indentured Labor

We prohibit and reject all forms of child labour and modern slavery, including but not limited to human trafficking, forced, bonded, or indentured labour, in compliance with all global, international, and local laws and regulations.

Indeed, our Suppliers’ Code of Conduct holds all our suppliers, including subcontractors who conduct business with any subsidiary or division of the Company, to the same high standards of responsible business practices and ethical behaviour. The Suppliers’ Code of Conduct is based on our corporate values and adheres to the principles of the UN Global Compact.

  • Environmental footprint and related human rights issues

We recognise that a safe, clean, and sustainable environment is integral to the full enjoyment of human rights. Protecting the environment is therefore fundamental to protecting and respecting human rights.

We acknowledge the importance of addressing climate change and will work to minimize our relative greenhouse gas emissions.

We are also committed to promote the efficient use of natural resources, to implement measures to conserve resources and explore opportunities for recycling and reusing materials whenever possible. In addition to this, we develop initiatives to encourage our colleagues to adopt environmentally responsible habits.

Monitoring, assessment, and grievance mechanisms

We monitor the effectiveness of our approach to human rights in various ways, including a periodic review of our adherence to our policies and standards, and ongoing dialogue with stakeholders. To take action and implement this Statement human rights are integrated into our impact and risk assessments that seek, among other things, to achieve positive impact for all stakeholders, and all other regular business activities.

We encourage and allow employees, suppliers and other stakeholders disclose any suspected or actual violation of human rights through our whistleblowing program (Trust Line), which provides transparency and accountability across the Company, as well as ensuring and reinforcing a healthy and ethical workplace. Action will be taken to investigate any reported violations and based on the outcome of the investigation appropriate remediation measures will be taken. We have zero tolerance policy for any form of retaliation or discrimination against whistleblowers.

We are committed to being as open and transparent as possible about the way we do business. We communicate proactively with stakeholders and offer different channels for them to engage with us. We seek to understand their perspective on our products and services, our business performance, our role in society and other topics. This input is used in both defining our strategy and our decision-making processes and tells us how we can best align the interests of our businesses with the needs and expectations of our stakeholders.
