In 2014, ADM published a formal Commitment to Respect Human Rights, aimed at ensuring that our colleagues, our suppliers and their contractors respect workers’ rights and comply with all applicable local, national and international laws governing working conditions.
The commitment contains strict prohibitions against the use of child labor, forced labor and bonded labor, and includes several other guidelines to protect workers and communities from exploitation.
We are in the first phase of our policy-implementation plan, which will identify any potential human rights risks along ADM’s supply chains and prioritize them by geography and commodity. Following a supply chain analysis and the determination of appropriate metrics that will help us assess progress and effectiveness, we will implement a pilot program at a single ADM facility. We will then schedule implementation and training at additional facilities in higher-risk regions.
