Human Rights

Human rights are universal basic rights (such as life, freedom, work and education) that must be respected regardless of social class, race, nationality, religion, culture, profession, gender, sexual orientation or any other status. It is the duty of governments to protect these rights, and of companies, of all sizes and sectors, to respect them.

What We Do

We respect all internationally recognized human rights, both within our operations and across our value chain. We take measures to prevent, mitigate and remedy human rights abuses, in accordance with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

We foster dialogue with the communities where we operate to understand their main needs and, based on that, propose local development projects and initiatives.
