The Transparency Act

The Norwegian Parliament has adopted the new Transparency Act, which aims to promote companies' respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production of goods and services.

The law aims to ensure transparency about supply chains and requires companies to perform and report on due diligence assessments.

The general public is given access to information on how companies manage negative impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.

Frogner House purchases its goods through a purchasing cooperation called NORES. This is a member-owned purchasing organization for hotels and restaurants in Norway and Sweden. We have chosen membership of NORES partly because we consider them to be good and thorough in the work they do to ensure that all suppliers deliver in accordance with legislation. Here we can safeguard and ensure responsible business practices in the supply chain.

NORES is a member of FACTLINES. For more information, see Nores | Corporate social responsibility and confirmation of supply chain monitoring 2023 Factlines confirmation - Nores SA 2023

In addition to this, the purchasing organization is a member of Skift's green procurement, which has a positive impact on the climate, environment and people, and creates green competitiveness.

Furthermore, Frogner House is environmentally certified by Eco-Lighthouse in 2023. See the certificate here. Eco-Lighthouse is a national certification scheme aimed at the private and public sector, with a particular emphasis on small and medium-sized enterprises.
