A company's size and influence can help in tackling important issues within local communities through community engagement endeavors. We proactively work with our local communities and municipalities through outreach, open dialogue, and invest our resources through volunteering to improve lives and strengthen the communities in which we live and work.
Free, Prior, and Informed Consent
Inolex indirectly sources from agricultural and farming industries that use land to grow products. We fully support the rights of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) as outlined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People. Indigenous peoples have a right to withhold or give consent to any project that may affect them or their territories. Consent must be given voluntarily without coercion, must be sufficiently in advance of project activities, and information should be provided prior to the project and consistently throughout the project. Any supplier or indirect supplier to Inolex is expected to support FPIC throughout their supply chains.
NDPE (No Exploitation)
Inolex indirectly sources from agricultural and farming industries that use land to grow products. We are committed to the principles of No Deforestation, No Peat, and No Exploitation (NDPE). Our direct and indirect suppliers throughout the supply chain are required to respect and support the rights of workers, indigenous peoples, and other local communities, as outlined in our Human Rights Policy and FPIC statement. See ‘Environmental’ Policies and Statements for more information on deforestation and peatland.
