CSR initiatives in DALO
CSR has been integrated in DALO’s operations since 2012 and we continue to strengthen our efforts
The 3 pillars of CSR
DALO’s CSR model consists of three pillars: a CSR policy, a Due Diligence process and a Governance Board.
The International Labor Organization (ILO) has as a fundamental objective to prevent poverty and promote social justice. DALO’s CSR model follows the Danish Ministry of Employment's instructions on ratifications in compliance with the ILO conventions.
The use of labor clause in public procurement agreements is founded in the ILO-convention no. 94 regarding labour clauses in public contracts and the National Labor Clause Circular no 9471 of 30th of June 2014.
In DALO, we uphold the Circular with a requirement of compliance documentation in DALO agreements as well as specified sanctions in cases of non-compliance with this documentation requirement and/or the labor clause itself.
DALO’s CSR model is founded in several international guidelines on CSR.
The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD Guidelines) are recommendations from governments to multinational enterprises on responsible business conduct.
The OECD Guidelines set standards for responsible business conduct across a range of issues such as human rights, labour rights, and the environment. The OECD Guidelines also establish a unique, government-backed, international grievance mechanism to address complaints between companies covered by the OECD Guidelines, and individuals who feel negatively impacted by irresponsible business conduct.
UN's Global Compact is a voluntary initiative based on CEO commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and to take steps to support UN goals.
The United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) ensure human rights are everyone's business. Comprising 31 principles, the UNGPs are organized under 3 pillars—Protect, Respect and Remedy—which define the duty of States and responsibility of businesses to protect human rights and provide effective access to remedy for business related human rights abuses. Each pillar provides guidance and tools to ensure the protection of human rights within the context of business operations.
As part of the Danish Government, we are committed to comply with international sanctions, which Denmark is obliged to comply with. In addition, we require that all suppliers must comply with applicable international sanctions. In agreement with the Danish Ministry of Defence, exclusion related to non-compliance with international sanctions will be based on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' sanctions lists.
