Social responsibility is, of course, a part of our daily business and a fixed component of our corporate policy and corporate environment. For us, business success and responsibility for the social environment are two sides of the same coin. Our social commitment is not restricted to caring for our employees, however. In the regions in which we are active, we also accept a social responsibility.
With carefully selected projects, we make a lasting contribution to local social and economic development. We identify important, long-term social topics and take these up in our efforts. This is always enforced in line with the country's tradition and development targets.
Developing strong, trusting and lasting relationships with our host communities, and recognizing and respecting people’s human rights and cultural heritage, are principles embedded in our business values, policies and standards. We aim to be a good neighbor across all our operations and build relationships that share benefits and secure community support for our work. We have strong processes for managing human rights risks. We pay particular attention to human rights issues – such as water resources, land access, resettlement and security – that may be commonly associated with our activities.
