Human Rights Policy
Trevali's commitment to human rights is of critical importance to our business globally. We value, respect, and support the dignity and human rights of all people.
Trevali is committed to respecting human rights as defined by the International Bill of Human Rights, including the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the eight-core conventions of the International Labour Organisation across all Trevali operations, regardless of geographic location. This commitment includes using our influence to identify, prevent, mitigate and remedy the adverse human rights impacts of our operations on our workers, supply chains, communities and others affected by our operations.
Trevali acknowledges this means addressing some of the most relevant human rights issues. These issues include those relating to health and safety, labour rights, working conditions, activities of our private and public security forces, and access and use of land, water and other natural resources. We recognize and respect the values, beliefs and connections to land and water of the communities and Indigenous Peoples near our operations.
We do not engage in or condone any form of forced, compulsory or child labour in our workforce or supply chain. Our people drive our operations. We are committed to protecting all our people and workers’ rights, including minorities, indigenous peoples, women, children, and other vulnerable groups. We believe we are only as strong as the relationships we have with our workers, communities, suppliers and other stakeholders.
Wherever we operate, we engage with all stakeholders throughout the mining life cycle to understand the impacts of our activities, build trusting relationships, strengthen communities and leave a positive legacy. We provide stakeholders with access to a confidential complaints and grievances reporting mechanism and listen to and take action to address concerns about our human rights performance. Governance oversight of Trevali’s human rights performance is the responsibility of the Trevali Board’s HSEC Committee.
We undertake due diligence processes to identify, prevent, mitigate and remedy all human rights-related risks and impacts as part of our existing risk management processes at each operation, and in line with our GMS, employment and recruitment processes.
