- Conduct business in accordance with the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and extend those requirements to all suppliers doing business with Lenovo.
- Perform due diligence across the value chain to identify risks and avoid complicity in human rights violations.
- Provide access to grievance mechanisms, investigate allegations and escalate known cases of human rights abuse to senior leadership.
- Integrate training and accountability for respecting human rights across the business and the supply chain.
