"Respecting human rights and addressing modern slavery

Origin recognises the applicability of the United Nations Guiding Principles to protect, respect and remedy human rights as well as the eight fundamental Conventions of the International Labour Organisation. This commitment to uphold fundamental human rights is reflected in our Human Rights Policy.As outlined in this policy, our activities will respect:

• the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (which contains the eight core conventions of the ILO, including freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation and the effective abolition of child labour);

• the ILO Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention 169 and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; and

• the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.This policy applies to our Directors, employees, contractors and visitors to our work sites.

The policy reflects our commitment to respect human rights and address modern slavery by setting out that we:

• respect that all personnel have a right to fair pay and reasonable work conditions;• respect the right of freedom of association with others;• respect the right of freedom of movement; and

• reject any form of slavery in our operations and supply chain, including but not limited to forced, bonded, or child labour.

Additionally, Our Supplier Code sets out our expectation that suppliers comply with all applicable laws and demonstrate their respect for, and protection of, the fundamental human and labour rights of workers. In relation to modern slavery, our Supplier Code requires that all workers have:

• freely chosen employment, with no deceptive recruiting practices, forced, bonded or involuntary labour;

• freedom from child labour, or harsh or inhumane treatment including torture, physical and psychological abuse, slavery, servitude, trafficking of persons or forced marriage; and

• freedom to move and associate, including collective bargaining, the right to join or form trade unions (unless prohibited by applicable legislation), and no requirement or pressure to surrender government issued identification, passports or work permits."
