Respecting human rights
We recognise that we may positively or negatively affect the human rights of a variety of stakeholders including community members, our employees and contractors.
We respect and support all internationally recognised human rights consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our most salient human rights issues are those relating to security, land access and resettlement, Indigenous people’s rights including cultural heritage, environment including access to water, labour rights including modern day slavery and in-migration-related impacts on local communities.
We have our own human rights policy and have made voluntary commitments to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Global Compact and the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPSHR). Our human rights approach is consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). We expect our policies and procedures to be applied consistently wherever we operate. Where our standards and procedures are stricter than local laws, we seek to apply our own standards.
