Taaleri is committed to respecting all internationally recognised human and labour rights, such as the International Bill of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

We are also committed to following the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in all our activities. Taaleri also expects its employees, partners and other relevant collaborators to respect these human and labour rights.

Taaleri reviews the human rights impacts of its operations and funds by conducting due diligence investigations and audits, as well as by conducting human rights risk assessments. The due diligence and human rights risk assessments cover the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the recommendations of the UN Global Compact and the OECD, as well as risks associated with the value chain.  Human rights impacts and risks are assessed on the basis of their likelihood, severity and remendability. In order to prevent probable and serious risks, mitigation plans are made, including planned corrective actions, responsible persons and a target schedule.

Taaleri’s essential identified human rights risks are described in our Sustainability Risk Policy. Our human rights impacts and risks are regularly assessed and monitored. In the future, we will report indicators related to human and labour rights as part of the Group’s Annual Report. Through these indicators, we aim to monitor and manage our impact on human and labour rights.

Our projects that have an impact on local communities have grievance mechanisms in place that guarantee anonymity. Any complaints are handled by project managers and our sustainability experts by seeking the best possible solution with stakeholders to mitigate or compensate for the potential harm caused and to avoid it in the future. Complaints are reported as part of the fund reports.
