The Transparency Act

On July 1st. 2022, the Norwegian Transparency Act entered into force. The purpose of the act is to promote businesses’ respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions linked to the production of goods and the provision of services. In addition to this, the law ensures that the general public has access to information about how businesses address adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.

Haltbakk Bunkers strives to conduct business in a responsible manner, committed to promote and respect human- and labor rights throughout our own operations, as well as in our supply chain. In order to identify potential negative impacts on people, society and the environment, we conduct due diligence in accordance with the OECD’s guidelines for multinational companies.

Our internal ethical guidelines define how we conduct our business, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. They set expectations towards business behavior for all employees in Haltbakk Bunkers, expectations we also set towards our suppliers through our supplier code of conduct.

Haltbakk Bunkers conduct its primary business operations in Norway but purchases certain goods and parts for ships/trucks in the Nordics or other European countries. In total, the company has 12 bunkers tankships and service boats, 3 tank barges, 14 fueling stations and 10 tankers and trucks.
