KONGSBERG's growing international activities make us susceptible to problems related to human rights and workers' rights, either directly through our own businesses or indirectly through our value chain. This means that we have to take steps to ensure that we do not come into conflict with prevailing human rights.

All our operations are to comply with the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child, the ILO (International Labour Organization) conventions and the OECD's Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
