2.6 Integrity & Business Ethics
Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption
Corruption and bribery still unfortunately remain rife in the maritime industry.
As a leading shipowner, it is our responsibility to put an end to this crime with wider industry stakeholders.
For prevention, in 2022 Hafnia has reinforced its zero-tolerance procedures and policies. All employees and contractors must undergo intensive yearly training for this purpose.
Hafnia is a long-standing, active member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (“MACN”), established by a group of companies within the maritime sector to work towards an industry free of corruption, to enable fair trade to benefit society at large.
We can report that no monetary losses were incurred as a result of legal proceedings associated with bribery or corruption, nor were any legal actions for anti-competitive behaviour, anti-trust, and monopoly practices taken.
