1. Responsibility in Business Relationships
With our Code of Conduct (CoC), Molslinjen works to ensure a responsible business conduct amongst our business relationships.
Molslinjen seeks to ensure that otherwise overlooked risks with our business relationships are identified, that escalation of impacts, which may both damage our and our business relationships’ reputation, is prevented, and that stakeholders are engaged; all to the benefit of the sustainability of society at large and of our business.
The background for this work can be found in the adoption of a global minimum standard for responsible business conduct, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD) – both adopted in 2011. Today, these instruments set the global minimum standard for what can specifically be expected by any company in relation to managing its adverse impacts on society – i.e. in relation to responsible business conduct. Molslinjen wishes to meet this standard by, among other actions, applying the standard when engaging with our business relationships.
