Human rights and decent working conditions

At NorSea, we are committed to promoting an ethical culture where our employees and business partners do the right things in the right way.

We are committed to safeguarding human rights and decent working conditions across our businesses. In accordance with our governing elements, we expect all our entities and supply chain partners to adhere to the same standards of human rights and decent working conditions as we do ourselves.

We support and respect the internationally recognized UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the international labour standards (the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work) and prohibit any form of modern slavery. This includes, but is not limited to, human trafficking, forced labour, exploitative working conditions and practices, slavery and child labour.

The human rights most relevant to our operations are

• Everyone has the right to life, liberty and personal security.
• Everyone is equal before the law and has, without discrimination, the right to the same protection of the law.
• Everyone has a right to protection against discrimination and incitement to such discrimination.
• No one must be subjected to arbitrary interference with privacy, family, home and correspondence, or to attacks on honour and reputation.
• Everyone has the right to rest and leisure.
• Everyone has the right to form and join trade unions to protect their interests.

Vår forpliktelse implementeres gjennom vår menneskerettighetsdue diligence-prosess, veiledet av FNs Global Compact og Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights og OECDs retningslinjer for multinasjonale foretak. Vi vurderer våre faktiske og potensielle menneskerettighetspåvirkninger, integrerer og reagerer på funnene, overvåker fremdrift, sporer reaksjoner og kommuniserer hvordan påvirkninger håndteres. Dette er en pågående prosess, og vi vil kontinuerlig forbedre vår tilnærming.

Our commitment is implemented through our human rights due diligence process, guided by the UN Global Compact and Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD’s Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. We assess our actual and potential human rights impacts, integrate and respond to the findings, monitor progress, track responses and communicate how impacts are addressed. This is an ongoing process and we will continuously improve our approach.
