Deutz adopts human rights code

December 1, 2022 EcoVadis EN

Deutz has adopted a groupwide human rights code. It documents the drive specialist’s zero-tolerance strategy toward the abuse of universal, inalienable, and indivisible human rights. 

“We take our responsibility for future generations and the environment very seriously. This also means ensuring that human rights are upheld without exception and at all times. The ongoing war in Ukraine, in particular, has shown that we cannot take this for granted,” says Deutz CEO Sebastian C. Schulte. To underline the importance of this topic, Deutz has summarized the human rights principles that are most relevant in its human rights code. It is based on national and internal laws, on conventions and declarations such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, on the fundamental conventions of the International Labour Organization, and on the United Nations Global Compact. “We view compliance with our human rights code as an essential part of our internal and external interactions. That applies equally to our employees and to our business partners,” Schulte adds.
