At Stena Line, we believe that working with our value chain and communities in a responsible and structured way leads to more engaged employees, stronger risk management and a more positive contribution to society. With a complex supply chain and suppliers in many countries, we have been working to understand and improve our impact for many years. We now want to get ahead of new EU legislation relating to our corporate sustainability due diligence duty (CSDDD).
Our ambition is to be a forerunner in the maritime industry and become a leader in human rights due diligence, with a new way of managing supply chain risks. We are working with our suppliers, the Stena network and the unions to develop new policies, Supplier Code of Conduct and processes relating to labour rights, human rights, anti-corruption and the environment though our supply chain. We will leverage the local social ecosystem to ensure the implementation of our Code of Conduct and address any gaps.
We are developing a roadmap for our work in this area, with detailed goals, KPIs and activities.
