DK Company is committed to run a responsible and sustainable business, and respecting human rights is a fundamental part of this commitment. International guidelines call on business to exercise due diligence to detect, prevent and mitigate any adverse impact related to human rights, and our commitment to respect human rights cuts across all our operations, value chain and the communities in which we operate. We seek to integrate our commitment to respect human rights into our company policies and procedures and manage the impacts of our business based on the operational context, our leverage and business relationships.
This policy communicates our commitment and details the areas where we have the biggest impact and hence focus our activities, i.e. suppliers, customers, and own employees.
The Human Rights policy is based on the following:
• The International Bill of Human Rights
• The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
• The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
• The Declaration of the Fundamental Principles and Rights of Work of the ILO (International Labour Organization (ILO)
The sustainability work of DK Company is guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular: Goal 8: “Decent work and economic growth”; Goal 12 “Responsible production and consumption, and Goal 17 “Partnerships”. We have identified these goals as those where we have the biggest impact and influence for our business. We see our commitment to contribute to the fulfilment of these goals and our commitment to human rights as complementary.
