It focuses on issues such as human right, labor rights, environmental protection, health and safety, diversity, equal opportunity and prevention of illegal behavior, anti-bribery and corruption.

One framework that plays a particularly important role in guiding our approach to business ethics is the Norwegian Transparency Act, which was enacted by the Norwegian Parliament on June 10, 2022. The Transparency Act establishes requirements for certain Norwegian businesses—including ours—to report on fundamental human rights and working conditions.

The Transparency Act also requires that companies like ours regularly publish assessments of what we are doing to comply with the Transparency Act and achieve its aims.
