Human Rights in Myanmar

Before entering Myanmar in 2014, Telenor commissioned a thorough human rights impact assessment as part of the due diligence. We continue to work with the risks identified then as well as in our ongoing due diligence and have taken many steps to further improve our processes and follow up. This includes issues related to supply chain sustainability, privacy and freedom of expression, land rights and conflict areas, as well as wider sustainability challenges such as corruption, child labour, employee safety and security, and the environment. Progress on these and other on-going issues is reported in the Annual Sustainability Briefings held since 2014.
