Respect for Human Rights
Respect for human rights is a fundamental value of Haynes International, Inc. (“Haynes”). Many of the topics referenced herein are more completely addressed in separate policies.
We strive to respect and promote human rights in accordance with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in our relationships with our employees, suppliers, customers and contractors. Our aim is to expand human rights within the communities in which we operate.
This Policy is guided by international human rights principles encompassed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, including those contained within the International Bill of Rights and the International Labor Organization’s 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
This policy applies to Haynes, each of its subsidiaries and affiliates and the facilities that we own, use and or manage. Haynes also expects all suppliers to uphold these principles and urges them to adopt similar policies within their own businesses.
We use due diligence as a means to identify, mitigate and prevent human rights risks to people in our business and supply chain. Where we have identified adverse human rights impacts resulting from or caused by our business activities, we are committed to provide for, or cooperate in, their fair and equitable remediation. We seek to promote access to remediation where we are linked to or involved in those adverse impacts through our relationships with third parties.
As more specifically set forth below, it is our policy to protect minority groups’ rights and women’s rights (under the heading “Diversity and Inclusion”). In addition, we recognize rights to water as a fundamental human right (as more specifically described below under the heading “Land Rights and Water Resources”).
This Human Rights Policy is overseen by the Company’s Board of Directors, including the Chief Executive Officer.
