Human Rights

OSRAM respects and supports internationally recognised human rights (see also our declaration on labor practices). In line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, we are committed to prevent, mitigate and where necessary remediate negative impacts and strengthen positive impacts on people affected by OSRAM’s operations, business relationships, supply chain and products.

OSRAM has several policies in place that detail our human rights commitment. This includes OSRAM’s Business Conduct Guidelines and a set of policy commitments covering environment, health and safety, supply chain and quality.

Managing human rights risks and impacts

To implement our policy commitments, OSRAM regularly assesses human rights risks related to our own operations, supply chain, products and investment decisions. Where required, we implement appropriate measures to prevent, mitigate or remediate negative impacts.

Human rights governance   

The overall responsibility for the management of human rights risks lies within  corporate Human Resources, as member of the Global Sustainability Council and reporting to OSRAM’s Executive Board. Human Resources  coordinates the implementation of OSRAM’s human rights due diligence, supports other department and answers to stakeholder requests on the topic.
