Halliburton utilizes several internally developed tools and a digital supplier management system to screen suppliers for potential human rights risks and abuses. These tools and systems include:
The Human Rights Audits we employ focus on key Human Rights and Labor topics, such as Child Labor, Forced Labor, Wages and Working hours, Freedom of Association, Discrimination and Harassment, Recruitment, Employee Health and Safety, and Management Systems, amongst others.
Please refer to the Human Rights section of our Supply Chain Governance chapter for more details.
As human rights legislation evolves Halliburton works diligently to comply with new regulations, such as the Norwegian Supply Chain Transparency Act that went into effect in July 2022. This act requires companies to share how they are working to eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery in their business and global supply chains, and to detail the steps they have taken and the controls they have in place to address human rights risks.
We comply with the UK Modern Slavery Act, the Australia Modern Slavery Act, and the UN's Universal Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Our statements of compliance with these acts can also be found on our website.
Halliburton monitors and complies with emerging human rights legislation worldwide, such as the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) in the U.S., the upcoming E.U. Act, and the Canadian Human Rights Act. In Canada, we adhere to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People in our operations.
