Human Rights Framework

The Minerals Council is taking the lead by providing guidance on the notion of business respect for human rights.

It is now the internationally accepted norm that business enterprises should respect human rights. In business’ quest to do so, it should understand what human rights are and how they relate to business and in the perspective of mining, how operations could potentially impact on human rights. This means that business should avoid infringing on the human rights of others and where violations are unavoidable, business should address the impacts, within the areas of influence.
