RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY
We support the protection of human dignity, as well as the absolute and unconditional respect of human rights, wherever the Ferrero Group companies operate.
We support the abolition of the exploitation of child labour and of forced and coercive labour, within our sphere of influence and along the entire production chain, through specific legal means and close relations with local Communities.
Based on our respect of the principle of equality of treatment, we promote the professional and personal development of our human resources. This also contributes to reinforcing our strong ties with the local Communities in the territories where we operate.
We work to avoid any form of discrimination in our employment practices in all the Companies of our Group, starting from the initial moment of hiring. The primary goal of our employment strategy is to establish long-lasting relations, inspired by the principles of professional growth and recognition of merit.
We guarantee the freedom for our employees to belong to Trade Unions and we recognize the role of Unions in contractual matters.
The protection of human health and the respect for the environment are at the core of our operational practices. We manage our facilities through the use of sustainable resources, such as water, energy, raw and other materials, including the use of renewable resources. We strive for a reduction of our environmental impact in all its forms, in particular by reducing emissions, eliminating wastes and correctly managing waste products.
