Monsanto continues to work to integrate our human rights policies in all aspects of our business operations. In addition to headquarters staff, who are dedicated to protecting and promoting human rights, Monsanto also has a growing network of Human Rights Champions located around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, India,Italy, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea and the United States.
The role of the Human Rights Champions is to heighten awareness and further implement Monsanto's Human Rights Policy and Process in our global operations. With a commitment to continuous improvement, the Champions work closely with central staff to implement proactive systems which support compliance with the policy, including monitoring, risk assessments, corrective action plans and special projects.
The Human Rights Champions assembled for a training and planning conference in 2011.
