Human Rights Management

Human Rights Policy

Doosan respects the human rights of all our employees and all our stakeholders with whom we have business, and we recommend the same level of human rights management from that of third parties, such as our suppliers and business partners. DHIC's human rights policy stipulates that basic human rights have to be guaranteed, regardless of a person’s origin, religion, gender, race or any other conditions.
As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, Doosan abides by the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact relating to human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. Based on internationally recognized human rights principles, such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: Ruggie Framework, we have established and are operating a human rights due diligence framework to assess the human rights management practices and inspection system.

DHIC aims to be a business that operates its human rights management system as follows to prevent any human rights infringements from occurring over the course of business, and to do our best to adopt effective remedial steps in the event of a human rights infringement, and to continue to grow together with the local community through engagement in activities designed for the improvement of the human rights situation.
