Identification of actual and potential adverse impacts on Human Rights

We have systematically integrated Human Rights assessments into our corporate processes for governance and decision-making e.g. for investments in new sites, plants, equipment, and financial assets.

For identification of actual and potential adverse impacts on Human Rights, assessments are conducted on a risk-based approach. On top, we have issued clear guidance documents. A selection thereof has been listed below:
