Iluka’s global footprint outside Australia requires us to address a broader range of social issues, risks and impacts, in particular the protection of human rights. Our Human Rights Policy was launched in October 2018 to express our commitment to respecting human rights and seeking to prevent or mitigate any negative human rights impacts from our operations or activities.
 
The Human Rights Policy is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and covers a range of areas including land acquisition, resettlement and the rejection of any form of slavery or child labour. It also sets out our commitment to the recognition of the rights of Indigenous peoples, respecting their culture and acknowledging their connections to lands and waters.
 
While many aspects of the protection of human rights are already covered in existing Iluka policies and practices, the Human Rights Policy is supported by a work programme that translates our commitments into actions. This included an internal assessment of our alignment with the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights for Sierra Rutile in Sierra Leone and in Australia we continued our work to prepare for the Australian modern slavery legislation introduced by the Federal government in November 2018.
