Following our high ethical standards and our intent to always act compliant and with integrity, Nyrstar has a set of core company policies and issued several policy statements.

In 2020, Nyrstar signed up to the International Responsible Business Conduct (IRBC) Agreement for the Metals Sector (‘Metaalconvenant’).

Stakeholders in the metals sector are joining forces to advocate for international responsible business conduct (international RBC). The aim is to promote international responsible business conduct and to combat human rights and environmental standards violations in the metals sector.

The agreement focuses on national and international metals companies with the aim of improving the visibility of the entire supply chains and maximising the collective leverage of its participants.

By signing this agreement, which covers all metals and the entire international metals supply chains, Nyrstar will also actively contribute to the objective of sharing knowledge and experience with other companies in the metal industry.
