Human rights belong to everyone, and we do not tolerate human rights violations in any form. We recognise our ability to contribute to positive human rights impacts. We are committed to avoid any adverse human rights impacts and to address and mitigate such impacts should they occur. Our personnel shall respect the human rights of colleagues, customers, suppliers, and all other stakeholders they have contact with.

Metsä Group respects internationally recognised human rights, as declared in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and ILO Labour Standards. We are also committed to acting in compliance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and expect our business partners to do the same. We are committed to ensuring that slavery, including child labour, forced labour, human trafficking or any other form of modern slavery, is not taking place in our own business or in our supply chain.  

Keep these principles in mind

We encourage our personnel to recognise how human rights are visible in our daily work, including:

  • Health and safety
  • Fair employment practices
  • Elimination of discrimination and harassment
  • Prohibition of child and forced labour
  • Freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Privacy and personal data protection
We respect human rights in all our operations.
