Human Rights

Being able to live freely is a fundamental human right that is enjoyed by most developed countries and Emerald Resources subscribes to this. As we operate in a developing world our focus is even more honed.

Emerald is committed to identifying, mitigating and remedying modern slavery risks within our business by implementing diligent and proactive measures to reduce the potential to cause, contribute to, or be directly linked to modern slavery throughout our operations and supply chains.

Our commitment to this is unequivocal and our Modern Slavery Statement clearly identifies the issues that we may encounter and the steps we take to eliminate them. This statement was prepared in accordance with the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 and will be reviewed regularly.

We are also informed by the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, International Bill of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

Emerald respects human rights and does not tolerate any violations in its operations or supply chain. Emerald aims to:

  • Use its influence to prevent human rights abuses in or near its operations;
  • Respect the culture, values and beliefs of local communities, including Indigenous Peoples;
  • Ensure respect of human rights by all personnel;
  • Foster a respectful and trustworthy relationship with employees based on dignity and worth;
  • Avoid any forced, compulsory or child labour in its workforce or supply chain;
  • Continuously improve its human rights performance;
  • Provide human rights training for key stakeholders; and
  • Communicate its expectations to all stakeholders.

Key procurement and management staff have attended a one-day Modern Slavery Awareness Skills Training Session delivered by leading global procurement education and training body Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply.

Our policy is applicable to our directors, employees and contractors.
