We are present in parts of the world where human rights and decent working conditions may be at risk, whether directly through our own operations or indirectly through the supply chain.

Our commitment

We make every effort to run our business in a way that respects human rights and labour standards. Our commitment is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Labour Organization's (ILO) 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Rights and Principles at Work. We also actively support the Voluntary Principles of Security and Human Rights (VPSHR) and the United Nations Global Compact Principles.

We promote respect for fundamental labour rights and standards such as decent wages, regulated working hours, the prohibition on child or forced labour, and freedom of association and collective bargaining.

While practices of association may vary in different countries in accordance with local standards, we endeavour to involve our employees and their appropriate representatives in development of the company.

Diversity and equal opportunity

We believe in diversity and equal opportunity and prohibit discrimination and harassment in the workplace, whether based on race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, political views, or national or ethnic origin. We also recognise the special rights of indigenous peoples.
