Our Commitment on Human Rights

Thaioil Group recognizes that human rights are basic rights and freedoms to which all people are entitled. In this case, “people” also covers to social communities as well as suppliers in the supply chain of Thaioil Group business. These people’s rights extend to the rights to natural resources such as water, land, forests and forest products, fishing areas and unpolluted environment. 

Thaioil Group, therefore, enacted the “Human Rights Policy in Operating Areas” which supports respects for human rights regardless of gender, race, religion, and skin color; and disapproves of abuses, child labor and forced labor. The policy supports employees’ freedom to unionize and guarantees the negotiation outcomes. Thaioil Group has an organized union (Thai Refinery Workers Union) and a workers’ committee which convenes every two months to manage any issues that have been raised and to communicate any changes of the organizational structure to employees. Thaioil Group also respects the rights of employees, suppliers, stakeholders as well as every individual’s inherent and inalienable rights with strict adherence to principles of international organizations for human rights which encompass United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), United Nations Universal Declara- tion of Human Rights (UNUDHR) and United Nations Framework and Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (Ruggie Framework).

Hence, Thaioil Group announced the “Thaioil Group Business and Human Rights Policy for Stakeholder” which was effective as of May 26, 2016, with the following details.

With these policy and guidelines applied to all production and service processes of Thaioil Group, we are confident that everyone will be treated with dignity and mutual respect. Thaioil Group recognizes the importance of ‘valuing’ and accepting different ‘points of view’ which results in employees’ trust, dedication and engagement with the organization.
