OMV, the UN Global Compact and Human Rights: From signature to implementation
Pakistan, Tunisia, Yemen
The study provides a detailed account of OMVs development of tools for its human rights implementation (in particular, its human rights policy and human rights matrix) and how the company has been striving to create a favourable climate for the acceptance of human rights among its employees and within its wider sphere of influence, the way it integrated human rights into its business processes, and how it strives to further implement and improve its human rights tools. Over a two year period, the company developed all human rights initiatives and efforts jointly with its staff and consultants. It captured the issues, approaches, and policies in an internal Human Rights Matrix, which helps to map OMVs responsibilities in relation to human rights, assess existing gaps between OMV responsibilities and activities, and prioritize OMVs actions.
