We make fair decisions

Our decisions are based on objective and fair assessments of Schibsted’s interests.
Even the suspicion of a conflict of interest can challenge our integrity and may have a negative impact on our reputation and business.

Conflicts of interest arise when our personal, social, financial or political activities affect the work we do or our loyalty to the company. Personal interests include financial interests, business opportunities, outside employment or directorships, as well as the interests of close family and friends.

What is Schibsted’s responsibility?

We don’t allow decisions that are made on behalf of Schibsted to be influenced by our own personal interests.
We don’t use confidential company information that we may become aware of (as representatives of Schibsted) for personal benefit or for the advantage of others.
We are committed to being open and transparent to prevent actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest.
We adhere to conflict-of-interest rules in relation to relevant press ethics criteria.

  • Remain impartial and professional in any dealings with business partners.
  • Be transparent in any actual or potential conflict of interest situations.
