As stated in its Human Rights Statement, Nexi Group declares its commitment to the respect and protection of Human Rights in all the countries in which it operates and commits to identify, mitigate and, whenever possible, prevent potential Human Rights violations related to its activities and throughout its supply chain.
Identify and assess human rights risk
Nexi is committed to promote respect for human rights in all areas of its operations by adhering with its activities to internationally recognized frameworks including the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”, the “United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights” and the “ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work”.
Nexi Group identifies internal reference structures and adopts appropriate procedures to verify the respect for Human Rights and alignment with the principles promoted by the Group in all its activities, including the supply chain and other business partners.
The Group in particular has defined a number of activities that contribute to human rights assessment, which allow to deliver the contents of the Human Rights Statement, identifying actual and potential human rights issues, preventing human rights violation.
Periodically, as part of its ERM process, Nexi conducts a screening of potential human rights in its own operations and in the larger value chain and reviews existing risk mapping to identify additional potential issues. Ad-hoc analysis are conducted in case of mergers, acquisitions, or other organizational transformations.
Considering the context in which the Group operates and the results of the analysis conducted, Nexi believes that the following human rights are potentially relevant considering its operations and the whole value chain: non-discrimination, sexual harassment, fair and equitable working conditions, equal pay and gender equality, respect of the minimum working age, health and safety in the workplace, freedom of association and union representation, privacy and freedom of opinion.
When assessing the significance of potential adverse impacts related to human rights, the Group considers specific vulnerable groups relevant for the context in which Nexi operates (e.g., suppliers, employees of third- party providers and local communities) and among its own employees (e.g., union representatives or internal networks’ members).
To ensure an effective management of the most pressing issues identified above and the prevention of human rights violations, the Group has defined specific policies and procedures in order to address actual and potential adverse impacts on human rights.
Relevant information on how the identified issues are managed, are reported publicly in the specific sections of the Consolidated Non- Financial Statement of the Group.
Where not specified, mitigation actions are defined at group level and implemented by all the different companies.
