We recognise our responsibility to respect human rights and our approach applies to all of our employees and contractors. It is informed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the core conventions of the International Labour Organization, and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
We have embedded human rights into our policies, business systems and processes. We believe this integrated approach allows us to efficiently and effectively manage human rights within our existing ways of working.
We focus on four areas where respect for human rights is particularly critical to the way we operate: labour rights, communities, supply chains and security. Our Community Feedback Mechanism and Global Helpline enable us to meet our commitment to provide access to remedy.
We consult with international organisations, companies and civil society to understand and respond to current and emerging human rights issues relevant to our business. For example, we collaborate with The Danish Institute for Human Rights to assess and improve our approach. We are members of the Business for Social Responsibility human rights working group which enables us to engage with companies across industries. We participate in IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, to share social performance good practice and guidance tools that can be used more widely. We actively adhere to the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights and participate in FPIC Solutions Dialogue, hosted by the non-profit organisation Resolve, to promote the practical implementation of Free Prior and Informed Consent.
