The respect of fundamental human rights is an essential element of the Maire Tecnimont Group's vision. The Company recognizes the diversity of the countries in which it operates, of its customers, suppliers, and employees, and each is valued as a strategic asset.
With a similar process to that used for the Quality, Health, Safety, and the Environment assessments, the Group's companies are committed to a voluntary Social Responsibility certification in accordance with the SA8000 management system.
This system can be certified through an audit system by an independent body and is based on international human rights standards (ILO and UN conventions) and national labor laws. Its purpose is to provide a tool that protects and give authority to all personnel working for a company and to all those who collaborate with the company, such as suppliers, contractors, subcontractors, and home workers.
The SA8000:2014 system, available at www.sa-intl.org, focuses on the following aspects: Child Labor, Forced and Forced Labor, Health and Safety, Freedom of Association and Right to Collective Bargaining, Discrimination, Disciplinary Procedures, Working Hours, and Salary.
The Maire Tecnimont Group has developed a management system that aims to meet the SA8000 requirements, its main objectives are:
• oversee the behavior of suppliers and contractors as closely as possible;
• manage any reports made by the affected subjects through the available electronic form;
• verify compliance with the standard through audits at Functions, construction sites, suppliers, and contractors.
