Company Response

Bank of America's response

Thank you for your inquiry. Our policies specific to climate change and to human rights are detailed in our Environmental and Social Risk Policy Framework (ESPRF). Beginning on page 12 you will find more details on these specific areas. Here is a link to our ESRPF. For your inquiry, I would direct you in particular to the information below:

”In our operations around the world, we strive to conduct our business in a manner consistent with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Fundamental Conventions. We have set clear expectations for our vendors in their management of human rights and other key areas in our Vendor Code of Conduct, including expecting vendors and their subcontractors to abide by labor laws and regulations in the regions where they conduct business. They must also adhere to laws addressing child labor, forced labor, slavery, human trafficking, equal pay and non-discrimination in their workforce, and not engage in any practice that could reasonably be considered as employing or encouraging child labor, forced labor, slavery or human trafficking.”
