For Norvic Shipping, corporate responsibility relates to how we do business and contribute to developing a sustainable shipping industry. We strive to integrate social, environmental and ethical concerns into everything we do.
We believe that a global joint effort is necessary to combat issues such as corruption and harmful emissions, and that bettering these areas will require all industries to make changes – including the shipping industry.
Through our company policies we ensure that social and environmental responsibility is a factor at all levels of our organization.
Trust is a cornerstone of our business. For this reason one of our priorities is ensuring that all Norvic’s activities reflect reliability, honesty and good intentions.
Norvic Shipping has a zero-tolerance policy towards bribery. Bribery is the illegal acceptance or offering of solicitation or promise of benefits of any kind to gain an advantage. We are committed to compliance with international laws on bribery.
To ensure that our ethical principles are upheld we are members of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and we are Trace Certified.
Norvic aims to set industry standards for ethical behavior by ensuring that all levels of the organization, including any business partners, follow guidelines for ethical behavior and any relevant Canadian and International regulations. We insist on conducting all our business and our interactions in a way that expresses openness, pride, dedication and complies with our ethical principles.
Norvic Shipping is committed to the UN Global Compact and the ten principles covering human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. We strive to continuously improve our communication on progress, applying the Global Reporting Initiative reporting standard as a tool.
