Our work within sustainability and CSR is established based on good practice in the industry. We strive to comply with internationally recognized frameworks, including the principles of the UN Global Compact, the OECDs Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the ILO conventions. We require the same standards from our suppliers.
Our work within sustainability and CSR is focused on the following key areas:
As a strategic partner to the Norwegian Armed Forces, we consider security as the most important factor in ensuring quality and service for our clients. Security measures include areas that may compromise confidential information or access to material that could be a target for espionage or terrorism. Our security requirements are incorporated in the handbooks and procedures of our quality system and are established and implemented strictly in accordance with applicable rules and legislation in the areas where we operate.
It is important for us to have a positive reputation and good relations with civil society. Examples of our local engagement include the project “Kunnskapsbyen Lillestrøm”, where a main goal is local and regional development. We cooperate with other institutions within the public sector, industry and education to enhance the effective use of society’s resources.
We encourage diversity and equality in our organization and work actively to enhance knowledge development and training. All our employees shall be given the necessary foundations to perform their work with quality from day one.
Health and safety
We take health and safety seriously and work actively to avoid injury or illness among our employees when they perform their work. We have a comprehensive system to implement and follow up on HSE requirements, with established handbooks for HSE and a dedicated unit for plant protection.
Working conditions and workers’ rights
AIM recognizes the right to collective bargaining and freedom of association. All forms of forced or compulsory labor, child labor or discrimination shall not take place. We incorporate internationally recognized principles such as the ILO conventions in our agreements with suppliers.
Ethics and anti-corruption
AIM works against all forms of corruption, including bribery and extortion where we operate. Employees are required to follow our ethical guidelines that set out our requirements to ethical business conduct.
AIM support the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights and work to ensure that we are not involved in any human rights abuses, including any conducted by our suppliers or business partners.
AIM works actively to reduce our impact on the environment imposed by our activities. This includes waste management, energy efficiency and efforts to reduce radiation, air and water pollution.
Reporting and follow up
AIM’s reporting in the area of CSR shall be transparent and in accordance with applicable rules and legislation. Our CSR principles are a part of our quality system and will be revised on a regular basis. Quality revisions shall be undertaken at least annually.
