We firmly believe that technology can positively impact human rights through the conscious development of technical solutions and responsible use of data. However, the growing reliance on information technology may also pose challenges and risks to human rights. As a company, we must recognize and comprehend these risks and impacts to effectively mitigate and manage them. This we do by conducting human rights due diligence and ensuring that we conduct risk assessments on an ongoing basis across our operations.

Respecting human rights is an integral part of our business, and we strive to understand and manage the potential risks to people across our operations including the supply chain, business partnerships, our own operations, product and service deliveries as well as end users.

As a global company with complex value chains, Tietoevry acknowledges the prevalence of possible human rights risks in some of the markets where we operate and some of the technologies we develop or deploy. We recognize that amongst our salient issues are freedom of opinion and expression, non-discrimination, privacy, and labour rights. Additional areas with human rights implications include conflict minerals when sourcing hardware, corruption, and negative impacts on the environment.

Beyond respecting human rights, Tietoevry believes in the active support of human rights in the various geographical locations where we operate, and we aim to use our leverage in this respect. Our stance is evident in our constant efforts to ensure access and availability to crucial services and societal functions that enable rights, such as healthcare, education, and jobs. In our own operations, we enable equal opportunities for our employees by ensuring fair treatment and a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Tietoevry is a member of the UN Global Compact and is committed to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). These frameworks provide the foundation for the key policies governing our work in respecting human rights:

  • Tietoevry’s Human Rights Policy
  • Tetoevry Code of Conduct
  • Tietoevry Supplier Code of Conduct
  • Tietoevry Privacy Policy
  • Tietoevry Security Policy
  • Tietoevry AI Policy
  • Tietoevry AI Rule

We aim to implement our commitment to human rights through the following approaches, as set out in the United Nations Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights:

  • Human rights due diligence: Execute human rights due diligence on an ongoing basis across our business to address our human rights impacts. This includes identifying, assessing, investigating, preventing, mitigating, ending, monitoring, and remedying any actual or potential adverse human rights impacts that Tietoevry may cause, contribute to through its own activities, or that may be directly linked to our operations, products, or services by our business partners. Tietoevry is committed to engage with stakeholders affected by the company’s operations (particularly members of any vulnerable groups) during the course of our human rights due diligence, as well as during the tracking, monitoring, and evaluation process.
  • Tracking performance and communicating: Tietoevry establishes measurable and transparent indicators to assess the implementation of this Policy, and to process, gather, and analyse data on an ongoing basis. Throughout the tracking, monitoring, and evaluation process, we will aim to engage and seek feedback from parties whose human rights have been impacted. We commit to promptly and efficiently communicate on our human rights performance – both internally and externally – including about our due diligence, responses, and performance. We also report annually on our human rights performance.
  • Provide for grievance and remediation: We will maintain, ensure, and promote channels for transparent and open communication, where all internal and external stakeholders can raise concerns without fear of retaliation or reprisal. We will also investigate fairly and provide access to effective grievance mechanisms.
