In addition to the E&C Policy and the Code of Ethics, Alestis also has "subpolicies" that reflect its principles of action in specific areas. For example, the Human Rights Sub-Policy was adopted in 2020, and the Anti-Corruption Sub-Policy and the Conflict Minerals Sub-Policy were adopted in 2022.

The Human Rights Policy formalizes and embodies Alestis' position with respect to its commitment to internationally and nationally recognized labor and non-labor human rights.

Human Rights Policy

The Human Rights Policy formalizes and embodies Alestis' position with respect to its commitment to internationally and nationally recognized labor and non-labor human rights. It is based on the International Bill of Human Rights, the fundamental conventions of the International Labor Organization, the United Nations Global Compact and the European Convention on Human Rights. In short, it is a policy aimed at respecting diversity and ensuring non-discrimination.

Alestis is firmly committed to the protection of human rights, which is why it is explicitly mentioned in the Alestis Code and in the Human Rights sub-policy.  In addition, as mentioned above, the requirement of this commitment has been extended to the supply chain, ensuring its involvement through the issuance of the Code of Conduct for Suppliers and the inclusion of specific contractual clauses in contracts with customers and suppliers that provide for the termination of the contract in case of human rights violations.

Closely related to the HR subpolicy, and even developing some aspects of it, the Conflict Minerals subpolicy was approved in 2022, through which Alestis strengthens the due diligence process aimed at contributing to the global responsible management of supply chains, with a particular focus on minerals and metals originating in regions frequently affected by armed conflict and/or widespread and systematic violations of international law. Within this framework, a conflict minerals audit was launched in 2022 to confirm that none of Alestis' suppliers source minerals from areas of conflict or systematic human rights violations that could lead to the use of child or forced labor.

No complaints of human rights violations have been received.

Alestis is firmly committed to the protection of human rights. This is explicitly stated in the Alestis Code and in the Human Rights Sub-Policy.
