Ethical Principles

We are concerned with sustainability. Here are our ethical principles.
We are on track with the UN's goals for sustainability. This is also reflected in our ethical principles, says general manager Odd Jensrud and venue manager Ståle Gundersen (pictured). 

Ethics governs choices we make as a company, as employees on the company's roads and for suppliers of goods and services where the collaboration is based on a written contract. Fjordbyen Innkvartering must be run in a responsible and sustainable manner. We care about people and the environment around us. We prioritise health and quality of life and will be a driving force behind green solutions. Our actions must be responsible towards future generations.

The UN Global Compact
We must operate in line with the UN's Global Compact (sustainability and business). Our ethical choices are based on human rights, working life, the environment and anti-corruption.

Human rights
We support and respect the protection of internationally recognized human rights. We must do everything we can to ensure that our operations and our actions do not contribute to violations of human rights.
We have zero tolerance for disrespectful behaviour, bullying, discrimination, harassment or unwanted sexual attention. We embrace and promote an inclusive culture.
We strongly distance ourselves from all types of trafficking and human trafficking and do not accept prostitution.

Working life
We must have orderly working conditions. Working hours, wages and allowances must comply with legislation and agreements. We respect and build on freedom of association and recognize the right to collective bargaining. We will actively oppose all forms of forced labour, and do everything we can to abolish and prevent child labor and discrimination in working life. 

We are committed to protecting the environment and contributing to a more sustainable world. Our environmental choices must be characterised by a "precautionary" attitude. We want to promote increased environmental responsibility and will actively work to promote the development and use of environmentally friendly technology. 

All people have equal value and equal rights. It also includes the way we meet employees and guests. Everyone must be treated equally and offered equal opportunities.

Taxes and corruption
We have zero tolerance for tax, customs and duty evasion, as well as bribery and corruption. It includes embezzlement, money laundering, extortion, fraud and favouritism to family or friends, including benefits and gifts that may influence business decisions with us or those we work with. 

Privacy (GDPR)
We collect and process personal data about guests, employees and customers in line with the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Confidential information is stored securely and in line with the personal data policy agreed with the individual employee, guest or visitor.

Our business must be conducted with transparency and integrity. Our ethical principles must be followed.

We will investigate all reports of suspected and known breaches of ethics. Necessary measures must be implemented based on the results of the investigations. No one who reports in good faith should experience negative consequences.
