17. Human Rights

The company discloses what measures it takes, strategies it pursues and targets it sets for itself and for the supply chain for ensuring that human rights are respected globally and that forced and child labour as well as all forms of exploitation are prevented. Information should also be provided on the results of the measures and on any relevant risks.

HOPSTEINER recognizes the international principles of human rights and treats employees, suppliers, service providers, customers, and other partners on the value chain with fairness and respect. The company is committed to equal opportunity and does not tolerate any form of discrimination. Occupational safety has top priority. Our rules are continually updated to reflect the currently applicable standards and laws.  

Our company management is unconditionally committed to the observance of human rights. Our company management has a fundamental understanding of human rights and their influence on business activities and commercial relationships. Because we do business within the EU, we have drawn up a set of framework conditions that ensures compliance on matters of human rights.  

For these reasons, no risks and therefore no negative impacts on human rights arise from our business activities. Any risks that may arise can be identified in good time by continually gathering information on new standards and changes in legislation. For this reason, this area is not classified as material. Consequently, the company also does not have a management concept for the legal issue “Respecting human rights.”
