Labor and Social Standards
As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, Sika promotes the protection of universally acknowledged human and labor rights. In its Code of Conduct, Supplier Code of Conduct and the annual Compliance Confirmation, Sika has defined minimum human and labor rights standards to be implemented globally, including the prohibition of forced, slave, compulsory or child labor, the freedom of association, the prohibition of any form of discrimination, and the guarantee of fair compensation and equal opportunities for all employees.
With operations that expand worldwide, Sika is active in many regions ranking high on human rights risk indices. Sika takes seriously its responsibility to assess its own operations in relation to potential human rights violations, and to implement adequate measures to prevent any violation.
