Respecting and Promoting Human Rights

Aker Solutions respects and supports internationally accepted human and labor rights principles.

Aker Solutions’ Code of Conduct, business integrity policy, and UN Global Compact membership underpin the company’s respect of and support for international standards such as the International Bill of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the UK Modern Slavery Act.

Human Rights Committee

To ensure cross-functional discussions and participation, Aker Solutions’ human rights committee is comprised of representatives from HSSE, business integrity and compliance, human resources, data protection, supply chain, and communications, as well as representatives from the employee unions.

The committee’s mandate is to ensure that the company has a sound human rights program and to continuously improve this program. The committee reports to the CEO and the audit committee on a quarterly basis.

The human rights program is designed to minimize and mitigate risk of human rights violations arising from the company’s own activities and business relationships.
