Human Rights Respected in Full and at All TimesUniversal human rights are always fully respected in all areas of our business activities. There is no information or evidence of cases indicating that NORMA Group has been involved in human rights abuses. NORMA Group is opposed to any kind of forced, compulsory or child labour. ILO convention numbers 138 and 182 are explicitly recognised as minimum standards. NORMA Group is not aware of any cases of child labour in Group companies or at suppliers, nor has it received any information suggesting this. NORMA Group does not offer training on human rights since this has not been an issue to date and does not represent an identifiable problem. In the same way, we are not aware of any internal or external complaints or grievances against employees due to human rights abuses. The same applies with respect to the rights of the indigenous population. GRI [G4-HR2, G4-HR5, G4-HR6, G4-HR8, G4-HR9, G4-HR12]
