Voluntary Principles

on Security and Human Rights

Established in 2000, the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights are a set of principles designed to guide companies in the extractive sector in maintaining the safety and security of their operations within an operating framework that ensures respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. 

PILLARS

The Voluntary Principles are the only human rights guidelines designed specifically for extractive sector companies. Participants in the Voluntary Principles Initiative — including governments, companies, and NGOs — agree to proactively implement or assist in the implementation of the Voluntary Principles.
