Social Responsibility

The safety and well-being of our employees, contractors, and stakeholders are paramount. We maintain a safe working environment, provide regular training, and enforce strict safety protocols to prevent accidents and incidents. At the same time we ask our suppliers to ensure that human rights and labor practices are implemented in their work environments. Havfram has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking.

Sustainability: Social Responsibility

Statement on Human Rights, Labour Practices and Anti-Corruption

This statement, relating to the financial year ending 31 December 2022 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 pureplay offshore wind company with a global horizon delivering full T&I (Transport and Installation) services within the area of offshore wind construction.

Our Approach

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

  • Our Employee Code of Conduct makes it clear to all employees the actions and behaviors expected of them when representing Havfram and encourages the highest standards of conduct and ethical behavior.
  • Havfram is committed to dealing with concerns about the company or supply chains of the company in an open and responsible manner. Our Whistleblowing Policy is designed to make it easy for employees to make disclosures without fear or retaliation via our confidential channels.
  • Our Code of Conduct for Business Partners 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 acknowledges 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.

For and on behalf of Havfram,
Ingrid Due-Gundersen, Group CEO Havfram

The Norwegian Transparency Act

The new Transparency Act, which entered into force on 1 July 2022 has been a key-priority within our due diligence work since the forming of Havfram. The purpose of the Act is to promote companies’ respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production and delivery of goods and services. This applies to our own business activities, suppliers and business partners.
