In 2013 an additional Human Rights risk assessment has been implemented as part of the Fiat S.p.A. standard audit process in place in EMEA, LATAM and APAC to ensure coverage of due diligence requirements of the UN Ruggie Framework Guiding Principles. The assessment covers the areas of:
- Child labor & young workers
- Forced labor
- Conditions of employment
- Supply chain management.
Since November 2013, a total of 10 Human Rights risk assessments have been completed for a total of 72 items checked. The focus was on the areas of child labor and young workers, forced labor, non-discrimination, conditions of employment, security and supply chain management. No issues were noted.
This project will continue in 2014 to cover 100% of Fiat S.p.A. internal audits.
All these efforts demonstrate the continuing Group commitment to respect human rights within and outside its boundaries.
