Slave-Free Alliance Norway is delighted to announce its first member, partnering with offshore services company DOF.
This new partnership will see both organisations working together to increase DOF’s resilience to modern slavery within its supply chain. This is particularly important given the high risk of trafficking and modern slavery in the shipping and maritime sector.
DOF’s new partnership with Slave-Free Alliance is the continuation of DOF’s commitment to due diligence. In October 2022, DOF was independently categorised as one of Norway’s best companies for sustainability reporting. Slave-Free Alliance is highly motivated in this new collaboration with DOF to support the continuation of this approach through our professional services.
Slave-Free Alliance Director Marc Stanton says: “We are delighted that DOF is our first Norway-based company to join our membership programme. DOF recognises the risks of modern slavery and labour exploitation in the maritime and shipping industry and have already taken steps to mitigate them. We will support their journey to cement their industry-leading reputation with meaningful practical steps to prevent and address human rights issues.“
Stig Clementsen, Chief Sustainability Officer DOF, says: “DOF is proud to be a partner of Slave-Free Alliance, and we will use the membership to strengthen our efforts within the area in our global operations.”
At Slave-Free Alliance, we are passionate about ensuring that organisations and their supply chains are as resilient as possible to modern slavery.
In only four years of operations, Slave-Free Alliance now works with 100+ member companies across numerous industries, including household names such as ALDI, Currys, AstraZeneca, and Suez. With the milestone of our first Norwegian member achieved, we are eager to support and embolden additional businesses within Norway to join the fight against modern slavery.
