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.
The BRAIN Group is a signature member of the UN Global compact which includes an ethics codex on human rights which we follow.
The BRAIN group generally has a low risk on misconduct in respects to human rights as:
- our service and production operations are all located within the developed world: Europe, UK and the US.
- around 90% of our supply chain is located within the developed world and mostly with large or global partners
- we have established additional supply chain standards on the individual entity levels
- we employ almost entirely highly skilled and skilled labor
Due to the above we view the risks to negatively affect human rights from our operations as to be very low and to be not material fro our business.
As 2022 marks the first year of our sustainability reporting no previous targets have been communicated.BRAIN considers the risk of human rights violations in our company to be very low. This applies for our labor practises as well as for our products. Hence, this is a sustainability topic which is not in our focus. Hence, no goals have yet been formulated in this context.
