employees' rights

Our responsible corporate governance, both internally and in our supply chain, implicitly incorporates compliance with internationally recognized labor rights, such as the guidelines and standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). The DEKRA Social Standards we adopted in 2019 commit us to principles oriented to the ILO standards in relation to discrimination and disadvantage, equal opportunities, occupational health and safety at work, working time and remuneration, freedom of association and co-determination, freedom of expression and privacy, and exclusion of child labor, forced labor, slavery and human trafficking. We are also committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, and to respecting employees' rights within our sphere of influence. Our partners in the supply chain likewise require and monitor compliance with these principles by means of appropriate standards, and multi-stage sustainability processes in procurement.
