Aibel wants to contribute to the promotion of human rights and labour standards in the countries we operate. Therefore we comply with international laws, declarations and principles. We comply with the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work 1998.
Our stand on modern slavery and child labour
Operating around the world demands a clear commitment to human rights issues and the prevention of child labour and modern slavery. Aibel therefore fully supports the principles in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 concerning slavery and human trafficking, along with the commitment to pay particular attention to the human rights of those most vulnerable to adverse impacts, including women, children and migrant workers. In addition we have established guidelines and policies to affirm our commitment to respect human rights, including the rights of children, in every aspect of our business.
Human rights in our supply chain
We have included appropriate terms in our policies and contractual documentation, obliging suppliers and contractors to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct. Our goal is that our entire supply chain will implement and adhere to the ethical standard set out in our code.
