Our approach and policies

1. Modern Slavery Act

Modern slavery is a grave violation to human rights. It comprises all forms of contemporary slavery such as forced labour, servitude, human trafficking and the worst forms of child labour.  Fresnillo has a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery and expects its employees, suppliers and contractors to reject any and all of its forms.

4. Bribery and Corruption 

Corruption has been recognised by the United Nations as one of the obstacles to effective promotion and protection of human rights. The Fresnillo Group implements anti-bribery and anti-corruption controls, due diligence and ethical training for our people and contractors. 

5. Human Rights

We respect and support human rights, avoid complicity with abuses, address grievances related to our business activities where relevant and we do not tolerate human rights violations committed by our employees, contractors, or public or private security providers acting on our behalf. Along with the laws of Mexico that protect human rights, we have internal policies and practices to protect the human rights of our communities, employees and contractors, and the Fresnillo Plays Fair whistleblowing line to report any concerns. Environmental, livelihood and other community concerns can be reported through our grievance mechanism, or brought to light via our perception studies.
