Empower People

4P – Empower People (logo)

People are at the heart of what we do. Thus, in our Policy for Human Rights published in July 2018, we summarised in a company-wide document that we are committed to respecting all human rights as formulated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations (UN) and in the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work of the International Labour Organization (ILO). This obligation refers to both our own employees and our business partners in our value chain. Our measures aim at establishing sustainable relationships with our employees, suppliers and customers. By ensuring decent living and working conditions, we demonstrate responsibility in the supply chain. In this way, we also contribute to meeting SDG 8 and promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. We respect, protect and support our employees. We enable them to integrate sustainability systematically into their everyday work and decisions. This is how we create a sustainable, attractive working environment that enables our employees to develop good working relationships with suppliers and offer our customers optimum, sustainable solutions that meet their needs.
