Responsible corporate governance across the entire value chain.
For Aurubis, responsibility in the supply chain is one of the key topics of the Sustainability Strategy. Aurubis sources primary and secondary raw materials for its primary copper production and recycling business from a number of suppliers and service providers worldwide.
Recently, Aurubis has increased its commitment to adhering to major guidelines for sustainable business from international organizations. This includes the OECD’s Due Diligence Guidance. These guidelines outline a responsible, global supply chain management system for the processing of conflict-free raw materials.
We respect human rights and advocate for their protection. Because they are of fundamental significance to us, we adhere to the internationally recognized core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). We have been a part of the United Nations Global Compact since December 2014 and are thus committed to working on implementing its ten principles related to human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.
We expect our business partners to follow not only local laws but also UN sanctions and trade restrictions as well as UN conventions related to human rights, environmental protection and safety.
