We support human rights and labour rights

Respect for human rights and labour rights is the global standard, and it’s our responsibility to comply with internationally proclaimed human and labour rights in all our activities, wherever we operate.
We respect human rights in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the ILO Conventions.

Explained
International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions are developed through negotiations between member state representatives from trade unions, employer organisations and government in an annual conference. The ILO Conventions cover important topics such as basic human rights, minimum wage, industrial relations, employment policy, social dialogue, social security and more.
The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights are a set of guidelines for both countries and companies that are designed to prevent, address and remedy human rights abuses in business. The principles are divided into three pillars: protect, respect and remedy. Each pillar includes concrete actions to prevent human rights abuses and provide remedies if such abuse occurs.

What is Schibsted’s responsibility?

We work actively to integrate respect for human rights and labour rights into our practices and business activities.
We provide all employees with a decent salary and regulated working hours and enforce zero-tolerance for child labour in our operations and that of our suppliers and business partners.
We always strive to uncover risks of violation in all our operations, and we exercise a high degree of caution when operating in regions where the public protection of human and labour rights is poor.

What is expected of me?

  • Work actively against any negative impact on human rights and labour rights related to our activities.
  • Expect suppliers and business partners to respect human rights and labour rights in accordance with our principles and standards.
  • Be aware if a supplier and business partner refuses to commit to our principles and standards on human rights and labour rights or is not willing to act transparently.
  • Report on any actual or potential violation of human rights or labour rights by colleagues, employees of our business partners, suppliers, customers and anyone impacted by our operations.
  • Recognise the right to collective wage negotiations and the freedom of organising.
