The key challenge for the Company is the protection and respect of Human Rights, especially labor and social rights, related to its activity as well as ensuring the avoidance of any involvement in incidents of Human Rights violations which may be caused by another partner, State bodies, natural persons or other groups with which the Company cooperates in the countries where it operates.
Zero tolerance for the violation of Human Rights, according to the key elements of the Human Rights Policy of MYTILINEOS, the “Code of Business Conduct” and the “Suppliers & Business Partners Code of Conduct”
MYTILINEOS, due to its activity in developing countries abroad, primarily through the Sustainable Engineering Solutions (SES) Business Unit and the Renewables & Storage Development (RSD) Business Unit, acknowledges risks related to human rights, both within its working environment and its business and within its main suppliers and business partners. These risks (such as activities that may affect or involve children, culture of corruption, inequalities in the workplace, restriction of human rights at the local community level etc.) may affect the Company’s financial, human and social capital, through their potential impact on its reputation and its “social license to operate”, and may lead to legal sanctions as well as to emergency measures beyond those imposed by normal business conditions.
