Allegro.eu runs its business ethically and expects the same from its business partners, employees and contractors. As a sustainability and responsibility leader, the company responds to stakeholders’ expectations, as well as international and domestic regulations and guidelines, complying with all applicable laws. Allegro.eu respects human rights enjoyed by its employees and contractors and expects respect for human rights from business partners.

International standards

Allegro.eu’s responsibility for respecting human rights stems from universally recognized human rights, which are consistent with the rights enshrined in the International Bill of Human Rights/The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the fundamental rights set out in the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We respect human rights in business relationships by upholding labour rights, freedom of association, as well as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD Guidelines). As a member of the UN Global Compact, Allegro declares compliance with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and is involved in meeting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Moreover, Allegro.eu is familiar with the United Nations’ instruments related to the rights of indigenous peoples, women, national and ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, children, people with disabilities, as well as migrant workers and their families.

Human Rights Policy

In January 2022, the Board of Allegro.eu accepted the Allegro.eu Human Rights Policy. The policy applies to all employees, contractors and business partners. It sets out the requirements for Allegro.eu’s own operations (concerning employees, direct activities, products or services), as well as recommendations for suppliers and partners specified in other additional documents and policies, such as the Suppliers Code of Conduct. In 2022, we are going to organize additional training for employees on the Human Rights Policy. 

Allegro.eu respects human rights by: 

  • Avoiding causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts through its own activities, and addressing such impacts when they occur 
  • Seeking to prevent or mitigate adverse human rights impacts that are directly linked to the Group’s operations, products or services by their business relationships, even if they have not contributed to those impacts. 
  • Allegro.eu intends to exercise due diligence to avoid violating the rights of others and to take action in response to any development that could have a negative impact on enforcing human rights that the company could contribute to directly.
