The Freedom of Information Act

Fundamental Human Rights and decent working conditions

Human rights and decent working conditions are of significant focus for DNB, guiding our daily efforts to uphold these principles. At DNB, we recognize the significance of fundamental human rights and decent working conditions across multiple dimensions: notably as an employer, provider of banking and financial services, purchaser of goods and services, and in our lending and investment practices. We also acknowledge our role as a pivotal societal entity.

Fundamental human rights encompass internationally recognized standards derived from key frameworks such as the UN covenant on economic, social, and cultural rights (1966), the UN covenant on civil and political rights (1966), and the core conventions of the international labor organization (ILO) concerning essential rights and principles in the workplace.

The primary responsibility for safeguarding fundamental human rights lies with individual nation-states. Through national legislation, states impose autonomous obligations on businesses to ensure compliance with these rights. Notable examples of such legislation in Norway include the Working environment act, the gender equality act, and the freedom of information act.
