Human Rights Assessment 2016 | 412-3

Significant investment agreements and contracts that include human rights clauses or that underwent human rights screening

All investment agreements and contracts include clauses on human rights. We make it very clear in our investment agreements and contracts that partner firms are to uphold the regulations and rules on occupational health and safety, guidelines for the reduction of environmental impact and rules regarding hygiene. Furthermore, we also refer to the guidelines for minimum wage, which also apply to subcontractors. Naturally, our Code of Conduct, which lays out our principles for compliance with human rights, also applies to all transactions with business partners, including service providers and particularly our raw material suppliers.
