Human Rights Guidelines
POSCO observes and supports the globally recognized international human rights standards, such as the UDHR, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the UN Global Compact Ten Principles, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and the Fundamental Conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO). All humans have the right to be treated with dignity. This includes the right to life and physical safety, freedom of ideas/expression/religion, freedom of association, work and home life balance, guarantee of privacy, food and water safety and security, prohibition of torture/slavery or forced labor, the right to fair and decent working conditions, and the right not to be subject to unfair discrimination. Since adopting the Code of Ethics that reflects its human rights policy in 2003, POSCO has made efforts to prevent human rights violations and to take adequate measures to prevent and address adverse human rights impacts that may occur in the course of its business management activities and business relations. Our commitment to human rights was further solidified in 2019 when we released our Charter of Corporate Citizenship.
