Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labor. GulfMark has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
We operate a number of internal procedures to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
GulfMark operations are managed in accordance with fundamental labor standards and we follow a practice that conforms to international standards for human rights.
In addition, we ensure that each contract contains appropriate compliance language to prevent modern slavery, including references to the Modern Slavery Act and Maritime Labor Convention, where applicable.
