Human Rights

Sandfire is committed to upholding the fundamental human rights of our employees, the communities in which we operate, those within our supply chains and other stakeholders who may be impacted by our business activities.

We aim to avoid impacting human rights resulting from our activities and to remedy any issues that are identified.

In FY2021, Sandfire developed a standalone Human Rights Policy to guide our management of human rights risks. Our approach aligns with 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.

Modern Slavery

Sandfire prepares an annual Modern Slavery Statement in accordance with the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018.  Sandfire will publish its fourth statement in December 2022.

Our commitment to respecting human rights means that we abide by applicable laws and regulations and aim to address human rights risk where we operate.

As we expand our business globally, we recognise that this has the potential to expose us to a heightened level of human rights and modern slavery risks. The human rights most relevant for our operations are related to workplace safety, labour conditions, and the rights of native title groups and communities where we have an impact.

We welcomed the introduction of the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 and have undertaken a program of work to assess and address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and global supply chain.
