We are dedicated to protecting and respecting the personal and property safety, as well as basic freedoms and human rights, of our employees, communities, and other stakeholders who may be affected by our production and operations. We integrate security and human rights management into our ESG strategic planning and operational activities and abide by the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPs).
The Company’s ESG Management Committee is responsible for human rights management. All subsidiaries have an ESG working body that is vertically managed by the ESG Management Committee to implement human rights management plans and to supervise compliance with human rights standards. The Committee regularly conducts human rights audits on all projects according to the Corporate Code of Conduct. The chief officer of the Committee (the President of the Company) is responsible for reporting any significant matters or progress to the Board of Directors.
We conduct our human rights-related work according to the human rights spirit and missions set out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We assess potential human rights risks and develop mitigation measures according to national regulations, the international human rights framework, including the due diligence process in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the Company's policies and standards. We also provide human rights trainings for all employees and stakeholders to raise their awareness on human rights.
