Human rights belong to everyone, and we do not tolerate human rights violations in any form. The human rights of our personnel, customers, suppliers, and all other stakeholders must be respected. We recognise our ability to contribute to positive human rights impacts and are committed to avoid any adverse human rights impacts and to address and mitigate such impacts should they occur.
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.
We continuously develop our operations and processes further to prevent more efficiently any adverse impacts on human rights resulting from our operations. See more from our Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct.
