Hafnia is committed to treating all people with dignity and respect, upholding human rights and instituting fair and ethical employment practices. The Company prohibits unlawful discrimination based on ethnic or national origin, age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status or family structure, religion or disability. Inappropriate workplace conduct, such as harassment, violence or discrimination is not tolerated.
Hafnia supports the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the standards advised by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Slavery, forced labour, child labour, torture and other violations of human rights are totally unacceptable.
Third parties providing goods and services to Hafnia are expected to comply with human rights and relevant employment practices, and the Company performs due diligence to support the effort to ensure that the various supply chains operate in an ethical and responsible manner to prevent slavery, human trafficking, forced or child labour and any other violations of human rights and labour standards.
At Hafnia we want our employees to feel safe and confident raising concerns openly with their manager or department head – or, in the case of seafarers, their Designated Person Ashore (DPA). Under the Maritime Labour Convention, seafarers may also report any complaint directly to the vessel’s flag state.
Following industry best practice, Hafnia has also engaged independent compliance service providers to support an external hotline. If Hafnia employees are concerned that internal whistleblowing channels are unsuitable, this external service provides an alternative point of contact. It allows for reports to be submitted anonymously, online or by telephone, in multiple languages.
