This includes our commitment to Human Rights and to international standards, based on the United Nations (UN) Global Compact’s Ten Principles, which we signed in 2010, as well as our own ambition to contribute to building more inclusive societies.

LDC’s Code of Conduct guides our compliance with international standards, such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the Core Conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Case Study

Eliminating child labor in Uzbekistan

LDC worked closely with the ILO, the government of Uzbekistan and the Association of Cotton Merchants in Europe (ACME) to monitor and evaluate labor practices at each cotton harvest season and address any concerns. We put great effort into eliminating forced and child labor, or any other poor practices, from our supply chain.
