The Transparency Act came into effect on 1 July 2022. The act requires enterprises to perform due diligence to prevent, stop, and limit negative consequences on human rights and decent working conditions.
The act gives both consuers and others the right to information about companies’ handling of these issues in connection with the production of goods and the provision of services, and ensures the general public access to information regarding how enterprises address adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.
Anyone can request information about. how actual and potential human rights consequences are handled and safeguarded. As a general rule, such requests must be answered within three weeks.
Below we post both requests that Gassco has received with reference to the Transparency Act, as well as our response.
