Inmet’s Human Rights Policy
builds on our company’s experience and the experience of our industry peers in addressing human right issues in a rigorous, consistent manner. Until recently, human rights were considered an issue for governments and NGOs – not for business. This assumption is increasingly outdated. A human rights strategy is a critical element of a successful global investment strategy – we have to take into account legal obligations related to ethical and socially responsible behaviour.
In keeping with our Values, Leadership Charter and Code of business conduct and ethics, management is responsible for understanding how their activities could impact human rights, and for ensuring the employees have the necessary awareness and tools to minimize potential negative impacts on human rights.
By identifying human rights risks and ensuring that we have the necessary systems to educate our employees and contractors, monitor and respond to identified risks, we will be in a stronger position to manage our reputation, effectively meet the challenges that lie ahead and ensure our continued success.
To give life to our Human Rights Policy, Inmet has:
• Incorporated human considerations into management plans;
• Formally joined the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights; and
• Implemented formal feedback (grievance) management systems at all our sites.
