This statement, relating to the financial year ending 31 December 2020 outlines the steps we have taken to assess our operations and supply chain and mitigate any risk of slavery or human trafficking. We are absolutely committed to conducting business ethically and responsibly and are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities.

Our Organisation

We are a Norwegian Subsea contractor with a global horizon delivering full EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) services within the area of marine and subsea operations.

Our Approach

Havfram has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking , which is underpinned by the following policies:

  • Our Employee Code of Conduct makes it clear to all employees the actions and behaviours expected of them when representing Havfram and encourages the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour.
  • Havfram and committed to dealing with concerns about the Company or supply chains of the Company in an open and responsible manner. Our Whistleblowing Procedure is designed to make it easy for employees to make disclosures without fear or retaliation via our confidential channels.
  • Our Supplier Declaration sets out our requirements that suppliers will provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour.

Our Training

Havfram realise that training on modern slavery and human trafficking will increase awareness as well as mitigate risk within the business and our supply chain and will require all procurement and HR staff to complete training on modern slavery.  In addition to training the organisation will raise awareness of modern slavery issues though regular email communications with all staff.

Due Diligence

We undertake due diligence when taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing suppliers.  Where we use external agencies to provide staff, these agencies are subject to the same procurement due diligence as any other supplier.

Performance Indicators

Key performance indicators (KPIs) will be developed and applied to measure our effectiveness of our compliance with the Modern Slavery Act and will include that all supply chain and HR professionals have completed training on modern slavery and a review of existing supply chains whereby the organisation evaluates all existing suppliers takes place.
