The Transparency Act is a Norwegian law relating to enterprises’ transparency and work on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions. The law entered into force 1 July 2022. The Act is intended to strengthen the impact of international guidelines and principles for responsible business, such as the UN guiding principles on business and human rights and OECD guidelines for multinational companies.
The main purpose of the Transparency Act is to promote companies' respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production of goods, as well as provision of services. The law also gives the public the right to obtain information about companies' handling of these matters.
Cloudberry has carried out the due diligence in accordance with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and has prepared a report in accordance with the requirements of the Transparency Act. The report primarily covers the period of 1 July to 31 December 2022. However, since this is the first year of reporting under the Transparency Act, the report also includes an overview of relevant work related to human rights and decent working conditions that has been carried out after this period.
Cloudberry has, with the help of an independent third party, assessed and identified risks related to human rights and decent working conditions in our own business as well as in the supply chain. The risk assessment identified adverse effects and material risks of adverse effects on human rights and decent working conditions. Measures has been taken to prevent, mitigate or halt adverse effects, and Cloudberry has updated and implemented guidelines and procedures for handling the actual and potential adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.
The strategic due diligence assessment will be conducted on an annual basis to ensure that Cloudberry follows the OECD's guidelines addressing human rights and decent working conditions in the supply chain.
