Approaches and policies

Commitment to human rights

Inter RAO ensures compliance with the principles of human rights protection set forth in the following international documents:

  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
  • The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
  • The International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.
  • The International Labor Organization's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
  • The Constitution of the Russian Federation.
  • The Labor Code of the Russian Federation.
  • The United Nations Guidelines on Business and Human Rights.
  • The UN Global Compact.

The Company supports and respects the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights and advocates non-involvement in human rights violations, thereby expressing support for the first and second principles of the UN Global Compact.

Inter RAO applies zero tolerance to any form of discrimination and advocates for equal rights regardless of gender, race, nationality, language, social origin, property and official status, religion, membership in public associations, or any other grounds.

The Company applies the principles of the Human Rights Policy, which are enshrined in the Code of Corporate Ethics, to all groups of stakeholders, including

  • Employees of the Company.
  • Members of the management and control bodies of the Company.
  • Business partners of the Company.
  • Representatives of local communities.
  • Other persons, who are exposed to the activities of the Company.

In 2019, the Company began developing human rights policies, community relations policies, and a Supplier Code of Conduct. The implementation of these internal regulatory documents will create the basis for further strengthening the practice of interaction with employees, local communities, and other stakeholders, both directly through the actions of the Company and indirectly through the partners of the Company.

The developed draft of the Human Rights Policy will officially set the following obligations of Inter RAO:

  • To respect the human right to life, freedom, and personal inviolability.
  • To prevent the use of any form of forced and child labor in their activities.
  • To guarantee the right to fair and dignified remuneration, safe and healthy working conditions, the right to rest and leisure, as well as to the necessary social support, including in cases of illness, disability, loss of the breadwinner, old age, and other causes of loss of maintenance of life by circumstances independent of the employee.
  • To recognize the right to freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, the right to create and participate in trade unions to protect their interests.
  • To respect the right of local communities to favorable living conditions, helping to reduce the negative impact on the regions of presence in relation to economic, environmental, social, and cultural aspects.
  • To develop and maintain sociocultural diversity.
  • To interact with stakeholders to provide reliable and comprehensive information on the Company's activities in the field of human rights protection.

It is proposed to introduce a new Human Rights Policy through the following activities:

  • Arrangement of human rights training for members of management and control bodies.
  • Assessment of the risks associated with the observance of human rights.
  • Development of an action plan to mitigate risks and/or eliminate the negative consequences of human rights violations.
  • Informing of employees and business partners of the need to strictly observe the basic principles of human rights and to report on incidents or suspected human rights violations in writing or through the Hotline of PJSC Inter RAO under confidentiality provisions.
