our employees – into our business.
CEO’s Human Rights
- NAVER recognizes the significance of establishing a culture of respect for human rights to create a society where people and technology can coexist. Therefore, NAVER strives to make meaningful changes in society by delivering various projects and performances to remind and promulgate the value of human rights. As our first step, NAVER disclosed the Human Rights Statement, reflecting our commitment to human rights management.
- Since 2021, NAVER established and has regularly updated its Human Rights Management policy to implement international standards related to human rights, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), the International Labor Organization (ILO) Conventions, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The Human Rights Management Policy of NAVER is comprised of four parts: The Basic Principles to respect human rights of its employees, partners, and users, Human Rights Management Governance, Human Rights Risk Management System, and Grievance Mechanism.
- NAVER has set up a company-wide human-rights management system centered around the “Human Rights Division” under the Board of Directors. The Human Rights Division works to identify, assess, and mitigate human-rights related risks. The Division reports major human rights risks to ESG Committee and Risk Management Committee under the BOD. Reporting directly to the BOD and top management of NAVER, the Division works collaboratively with multiple departments to implement tasks associated with human rights.
