The Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPs) serve as guidelines for our security and human rights programs, including for interactions with host government police, military personnel and private security contractors. We focus our implementation primarily on Indonesia and Peru, which are higher-risk jurisdictions for security and human rights matters.
Risk assessments help us identify security-related human rights risks and create action plans for specific site-level operating environments. Contracts with private security providers include requirements to comply with both our Human Rights Policy and the VPs. We maintain support agreements with host governments that detail the working relationship between the company and the public security personnel assigned to it. Dedicated human rights compliance officers lead training for security employees, security contractors and host government security. They also receive, document and follow up formally and informally on reported human rights incidents, grievances and allegations. Refer to our 2022 Voluntary Principles Report to the Plenary for more information.
