SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

We recognize the need to examine our supply chain with regard to potential human rights violations. Our first step toward meaningfully achieving this requirement is to inform ourselves about how our business activities and actions could pose a risk to particularly vulnerable groups. In 2020, the Compliance Officer of the Manmade Fibers Division participated in a German Global Compact Network (GGCN) training program to gain a deeper understanding of the steps needed to embed human rights due diligence management approaches along complex supply chains. In 2021, we plan to use the tools provided by the GGCN, the MVO CSR Risk Check and other resources to conduct a comprehensive self-assessment as the basis for initial steps in addressing human rights due diligence in our supply chain. This will initially be a risk analysis that outlines the value chain and business relationships and identifies potential risk areas and associated risk groups to assess the risks and the impacts of our business activities in terms of human rights due diligence obligations.
