The safety and security of our 800 employees in Ukraine is the number one priority for CRH and we are providing support and assistance to our people and their families. This includes relocating people to areas in the west of the country and helping those who have taken the decision to leave the country to do so safely. We have dedicated support teams in place, both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries, and we will continue to do all we can as the situation evolves. In addition, CRH has partnered with UNICEF to support the humanitarian aid programme in Ukraine and through donations also from colleagues across our global business.
CRH is committed to respecting internationally recognised human rights as set out in the International Bill of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation’s Core Labour Principles, across our operations and extended supply chain. We continue to develop and refine our approach to human rights due diligence and we are committed to operating in a manner consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Please see our Modern Slavery Statement for further information.
CRH has ceased all operations in Russia and has withdrawn from the market.
