We have the responsibility to respect human rights by placing a strong focus on how we interact with communities, security, labor rights, and supply chain conditions.
We recognize that our activities can impact people’s lives and in the process respecting labor rights and human rights is a critical element of doing business responsibly. Human rights abuses will not be tolerated or encouraged in any projects undertaken by the company.
MPRL E&P is committed to respecting human rights as indicated by the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We endeavor to:
- Manage potential human rights issues through internal controls relating to contracts, environment, ethical conduct, human resources, security, and social performance.
- Recognize that we should provide, or assist in providing, remedy for human rights impact resulting from our activities. We require our operations to take a multi-stakeholder approach to establishing operational grievance mechanisms to facilitate resolutions of any grievances.
- Ensure an ongoing due diligence process will take place to periodically monitor and review human rights risks and uphold MPRL E&P’s respect for human rights.
