Human rights

The Code of Ethics contains specific clauses on the respect for human rights. In compliance with the Code, EDPR expresses its total opposition to forced or compulsory labour and recognizes that human rights should be considered fundamental and universal, based on conventions, treaties and international initiatives like the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization and the Global Compact.

Our Procurement Manual also includes a chapter that guides each Purchasing Department to put these principles into practice, therefore when procuring and contracting goods and services the Company appeals to all reasonable endeavours so that selected suppliers accept to comply with the UN Global Compact’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
