KAZ Minerals recognises all human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We are committed to ensuring our operations do not infringe on human rights, for instance by providing fair, safe and secure working conditions in line with the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We respect the right to freedom of association and consult our employees and trade unions about changes to our business and employment conditions.
Local communities are consulted during project development and any major operational changes that may affect them, and we respect and protect local heritage and culture.
We do not tolerate child or forced labour at any of our operations. We comply with local legislation with regard to employee age, and do not employ anyone under the age of 18.
In accordance with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, KAZ Minerals has undertaken a review of its operations and supply chain in 2016. The Group has adopted a new Suppliers Charter, incorporating a Code of Fair Employment which suppliers are required to comply with.
