Åpenhetsloven / The Transparency Act
Contact us for questions regarding SAS’ human rights work, firstname.lastname@example.org, for inquiries with reference to the Transparency Act
The Transparency Act is a new act, adopted by the Norwegian government, which came into force on 1 July 2022. The act aims to promote companies' respect for basic human rights and decent working conditions and ensure the public's access to information.
The Act requires larger businesses to carry out due diligence assessments in order to stop, prevent and limit negative consequences on human rights and decent working conditions.
The reports below contain the SAS Group’s statement including our due diligence assessments under the Transparency Act for 2023, in English and Norwegian:
Our statement is published annually at https://www.sasgroup.net/sustainability/aapenhetsloven
The Act also gives both consumers and others the right to information about the companies' handling of human rights in connection with the production of goods and the provision of services and ensures the general public access to information about how businesses handle negative consequences for basic human rights and decent working conditions.
Anyone can request information about how actual and potential consequences for human rights are handled and safeguarded. As a rule, such requests must be answered within three weeks.
Here we publish requests that SAS has received with reference to the Transparency Act, as well as our responses.
