The following diagram illustrates the positive impact that can be achieved in our value chain and beyond through our commitment to human rights.

Human rights impact

Specific commitments to human rights at our company and among our suppliers
We once again conducted “Human Rights Impact Assessments” on site in our own business units in 2022 – this time in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Romania.

The Human Rights Impact Assessment is a means of evaluating the effects business operations have or could potentially have on human rights, and the organization’s ability to prevent, mitigate, or remedy such effects. We took the dimension of digital ethics into account for the first time.

We used the findings to implement changes to the way work is planned. We also initiated various measures to raise awareness, including workshops to explain overtime regulations.

This offering contributes to the following SDGs:

  • SDGs 3 and 8: With our Human Rights Impact Assessments, we are implementing measures for observance of human rights throughout the company and in the value chain.

In addition, we implement the relevant recommendations of the “United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights”. More information on human rights can be found here.
