Respecting human rights lies at the heart of our sustainability approach. It is the responsibility of governments to protect and for us to respect the fundamental freedoms and rights of our workers and the communities who could be impacted by our activities.

Because our activities have the potential to impact human rights, we commit to prevent, mitigate and manage potential negative impacts while striving to promote human rights and contribute to improved human dignity and living conditions through activities such as job creation and local procurement, investments in community capacity building, infrastructure, and economic development programs.

For more information about our approach to respecting human rights – including our policies, standards, and journey to continuously improve our performance – read our guide to respecting human rights.
