Since 2019, we put into effect MMG’s Human Rights Policy, with is in-line with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Sustainable Development Framework of the ICMM, the Guidelines for Multinational Companies of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the fundamental labour standards established in the Declaration of the International Labour Organization (ILO) regarding Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. These international frameworks are incorporated into our risk management approach through:
- Integration of human rights considerations into our employment processes, risk analysis activities and formal complaint processes.
- The development of processes that facilitate the reporting of cases of unacceptable conduct without fear of intimidation or retaliation, by our stakeholders.
- The adoption of culturally appropriate relationship and consultation processes that ensure the meaningful participation of vulnerable populations and indigenous communities, in particular, in decision-making.
- Respect for human rights, interests, special connections with land and water, and the perspectives of indigenous peoples and the communities in which we live and operate, including through processes to provide access to remediation measures in the face of the impacts that we may cause.
