Åpenhetsloven – Transparency Act
The Norwegian act relating to corporate transparency and work on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions (the Transparency Act, NOR: Åpenhetsloven) entered into force on 1 June 2022. The purpose of the Transparency Act is, among other things, to "promote businesses' respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production of goods and the provision of services", as well as to ensure "public access to information on how enterprises deal with negative consequences for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions". The Transparency Act imposes a duty of disclosure on enterprises, as well as a duty to conduct annual due diligence.
TotalEnergies works actively and continuously to ensure fundamental human rights and decent working conditions, both in our own operations and in our supply chains. Feel free to contact us if you would like more information about how we work with these topics or have other questions about our work on the Transparency Act.
