The act basically applies to larger businesses. The Act will also apply to companies in a group, and to larger companies' mapping of their supply chains.
The Transparency Act is based on principles of risk and proportionality. The businesses must use the resources where they contribute best to improving conditions for human rights and decent working conditions.
Act relating to enterprises’ transparency and work on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions (Transparency Act) shall promote companies’ transparency and work towards fundamental human rights and proper working conditions. The background for the Act is to ensure that Norwegian companies take overall responsibility for their value chain, and continuously carry out human rights due diligence in these. We conduct due diligence in accordance with the requirements of the Transparency Act § 4.
Our internal regulations stipulate that we undertake to comply with fundamental human rights in accordance with the UN Declaration of Human Rights, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child article 32, as well as ILO conventions number 29, 87, 100, 105, 111, 138 and 182. We have drawn up ethical guidelines for trade and human rights. This can be provided on request.

In accordance with the new Transparency Act, we work continuously to map out and assess any negative impacts/damage in our own operations, supply chains and business contacts.

We have begun due diligence, and an account of this work will be ready no later than 30 June 2023 and will be published on our website.
