We are all equally entitled to human rights without discrimination as set out in international conventions and local laws
Respect for human rights is integral to Telenor’s business and how we operate. Labour Rights are a vital part of human rights and grant every employee and everyone working with Telenor the right to e.g. fair pay, benefits and freedom of association
We work proactively to respect and support children’s rights.
What is expected of us
We respect the human rights and labour rights of our colleagues, the employees of our Business Partners, our customers and the people in the countries where we operate
We respect these rights by not violating the rights of others, nor being complicit in violations by others
We do business in a fair and non-discriminating way, where respecting human rights is an integral part of our relations with Business Partners and other stakeholders
We seek to make a positive impact on societal challenges related to individual human rights including child rights in our business
We avoid doing business with Business Partners that are known for violating human rights laws
We do not retaliate against anyone who makes a good faith report of violations of human rights or labour rights laws related to our operations.
What to look out for
We experience, witness or become aware of any violation of human rights of our colleagues, employees of Business Partners or people in the countries where we operate
We, or one of our colleagues, are prevented from joining legitimate employee engagement forums, e.g. labour unions
Anyone, including Public Officials, asks for personal data on Telenor employees, customers or Business Partners without the right authorization and without following due process
We become concerned that any existing or prospective Business Partner may be violating human rights or labour rights
A contract we are negotiating has such a low price or short delivery period that it will lead to low wages or excessive working hours for supplier employees.
