SAFEGUARDING HUMAN RIGHTS
MΕΤΚΑ acknowledges its share of responsibility to protect
Human Rights and to ensure they are respected in the work
premises of its companies as well as in its broader business
activities. To this end, we are committed to making continuous
and concerted efforts to strengthen procedures and methods
which aim to:
Adhere to our pledge to uphold the principles of the
UN Global Compact, especially regarding child labour
and compulsory labour.
Protect the rights of people with disabilities.
Promote the protection of Human Rights among all
participants in the supply chain of our Group
companies.
Management Approach
Safeguarding Human Rights Policy
Equal Opportunities & Diversification
We support and defend the internationally
recognised human rights, in accordance with the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the
standards of the International Labour Organisation.
We are committed to promoting the
protection of human rights in all our
business units and in all locations where
we operate. We are also committed to
promoting the protection of human rights
among our employees, contractors,
subcontractors, clients and suppliers, as
well as in the partnership agreements that
we conclude in all our business activity
sectors.
We ensure remunerations which in several
cases exceed those provided for by the
national laws.
We promote equal opportunities and the
equal treatment of our employees, and
we acknowledge their freedom of
expression.
We preclude all types of discrimination,
harassment or unprofessional behaviour at
the workplace.
We prohibit the employment of minors
under the age of 18, as well as all forms
of forced labour (such as mandatory
overtime, threat of dismissal etc.).
We consider that the key responsibility of
our top executives is to treat appropriately
all forms of individuality, in order to
protect the personality of all persons and
bring out the best in them.
In line with the above, the key goals of our Group
are “TO IDENTIFY SITUATIONS INVOLVING RISKS
OF VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS” more
systematically, “TO PROVIDE OUR EMPLOYEES
WITH TRAINING” and “TO PROMOTE THE
PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE SPHERE
OF INFLUENCE OF OUR BUSINESS ACTIVITY”.
These goals, together with our principles and
labour practices, are directly linked to the
protection of Human Rights.
