Human rights assessment

Operations that have been subject to human rights reviews
or impact assessments

To help us navigate and identify the most salient human rights impacts, we conduct human rights due diligence both at Group and business unit (BU) levels. Human rights impact is also included in our materiality assessment. Our activities are guided by the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and other international frameworks including the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the ILO Core Conventions.

See Telenor Annual Report 2020   – p.69. Further we conduct assessments related to e.g. specific projects, entry into new markets etc.

UN Global Compact: Principle 1

Significant investment agreements and contracts that include human rights clauses or that underwent human rights screening

All suppliers and partners that have a direct contractual relationship with Telenor must comply with Telenor’s Supplier Conduct Principles (SCP). An Agreement on Responsible Business Conduct (ABC) legally obliges the supplier to comply with the SCP and certain requirements set out in the ABCs. As at year-end 2020, we have signed more than 6,100 ABCs with almost all our active suppliers that we have defined as in-scope for ABC

The Agreement on Responsible Business Conduct that includes human rights clauses are implemented broadly to all suppliers. “Suppliers” are defined widely and covers all contracting parties also significant investments agreements.
