Human rights


One of the strategic goals of the CSR strategy of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. is care for human rights. Today, 100% of the new foreign investments are assessed in terms of human rights-related risks and analysed in terms of their impact on the local communities.


The Company also conducts supplier audits, checking their operations in terms of compliance with human rights regulations (the Central Procurement Office cooperates in this respect with KGHM Shangai – a subsidiary which is responsible, among other things, for checking the potential suppliers of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.). Audits of local suppliers are also conducted on an ad hoc basis. Up until the end of 2011 there were no incidents of suppliers violating human rights.

Developing guidelines relating to CSR activities and ensuring the compliance of foreign operations with human rights, and their cooperation with local communities, will be a challenge to the Company’s foreign expansion. This will require, among other things, conducting training on compliance with human rights, in connection with an investment process.
