HUMAN RIGHTS MANAGEMENT

Kordsa Code of Business Ethics is our company’s guiding policy for human and employment rights. The policy is valid for all Kordsa companies and suppliers. UNGC’s first two principles, signed by Kordsa, are concerning human rights protection. The UN Global Compact labor principles come from The ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. Additionally, Kordsa’s employment and labor practices are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in countries it operates.

In line with our Code of Business Ethics and company policies, forced or involuntary labor and child labor are strictly prohibited across all Kordsa plants. Like all our employees, our security staff is also trained on code of ethics including our human rights approach upon recruitment. Human rights risks and complaints in the company are audited both internally and externally by third parties.

At Kordsa, our priority is to maintain a fair working environment for our people. We make sure that employment practices including but not limited to recruitment, placement, promotions, transfers, rotations, cancellation of employment contracts, dismissals, leaves, wages, extra payments, social rights, and training are carried out in a non-discriminatory way.

We do not accept discrimination in our business relations on the basis of language, race, gender, political views, philosophical beliefs, religions, sects or other similar attributes, real or perceived disability, and other legally protected attributes.
