Impact measurement: Our contribution to respect for human rights

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

Human rights impact


In 2019 we conducted a Human Rights Impact Assessment at unit-Systems in India. It looked at the topics such as working hours, mental and physical stress and work-life balance as well as discrimination and working conditions of employees ou our suppliers..

We developed and introduced a range of improvement measures based on this assessment. Besides changes to the way work is planned, these included various measures for raising awareness, such as workshops designed to explain overtime regulations.

With such specific measures we have a chance to have an positive impact on SDGs 3 and 8 and contribute towards the recommendations of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
