Labour & Human Rights
Fundamental Human Rights
We are committed to upholding human dignity and the associated fundamental freedoms of our employees, suppliers and other external stakeholders. We uphold the protection of human rights by following:
- The United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
- The UN’s Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights.
- The International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles & Rights at Work, and
- The Swiss Federal Government’s Ordinance on Conflict Minerals & Child Labour.
Guiding Principles on Labour & Human Rights Applicable to our Suppliers & Trading Partners
In addition to fundamental declarations, and where applicable, we expect our principal suppliers and trading partners to consider and follow the below-listed standards and guidelines (and others where relevant) to promote and ensure labour and human rights for their operations and activities:
- OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
- UN Global Compact Principle on Human Rights.
- Responsible Minerals Initiative’s (RMI) Responsible Minerals Assurance Process – Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Standard for Mineral Supply Chains (Section VII. Social Standards).
- International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM) – Mining Principles: 1. Ethical Business, and 3. Human Rights,
- Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Protocols, and
- The International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) Performance Standards: 2. Labour & Working Conditions, 5. Land Acquisition & Involuntary Resettlement, 7. Indigenous Peoples, and 8. Cultural Heritage.
The above standards and guidelines are reflected in the ArrowResources Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Policy and its Responsible Sourcing & Supply Chain Standard.
We work with ours supply chain to integrate labour and human rights performance aspects into their management systems to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
