Rights

Our Human Rights policy is informed by the international human rights principles described in the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGP) on Business and Human Rights, Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Labour Organization's (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We are committed to respecting recognized human rights principles aimed at promoting and protecting human rights in the countries in which we operate. We recognize that governments are ultimately responsible for establishing the legal framework to protect human rights within their jurisdictions.

We encourage any party to report situations in which they have a good faith belief that the entities or individuals covered under our policy have taken actions that are inconsistent with the principles set forth in the policy. We have dedicated a confidential and anonymous means to encourage reporting by any party, maintained by our Office of Business Practices.
