Dana Petroleum has the following steps in place to reduce the risk of Modern Slavery affecting its business and supply chain:
Dana Petroleum has a Business Integrity Policy focused on maintaining positive relationships with all stakeholders, including business partners, suppliers and the wider communities in which we work. The policy promotes working within the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate, promoting high ethical standards and a culture whereby people are empowered to report issues of concern.
Suppliers to Dana Petroleum's business in the UK and Netherlands should be registered with First Point Assessment Ltd ("FPAL"). FPAL is an Achilles service which identifies, evaluates and provides pre-qualification information about suppliers on behalf of major buyers in oil and gas. Further information on FPAL can be found here. FPAL assesses suppliers across a range of compliance criteria.
Dana Petroleum's procurement processes require that a Supply Chain Management representative is involved from the initiation of procurement through to the award of contract. Goods and services of higher risk and monetary value are subject to more involved tendering processes. Consideration of quality management systems, policies and related information is a part of this process.
Dana Petroleum's template contractual terms require the highest standards of business ethics, compliance with applicable laws and commitment to health, safety and the protection of the environment. Dana Petroleum's Personnel Services Agreement requires that provisions are in place to protect agency workers supplied by contractors and to require that such workers are legally employed and remunerated appropriately. Such provisions seek to protect the status of agency workers and their health and safety.
Dana Petroleum's Business Integrity Policy focuses on creating a culture where concerns over practices which breach our ethical standards can be raised by stakeholders. An integrity hotline is in place which is promoted on notice boards, our intranet and as a part of on-boarding.
