We do not accept any form of discrimination of its own employees or others involved in Statoil’s activities. It may, however, sometimes be legal and justifiable to use positive discrimination to achieve equality and diversity.

Discrimination includes all unequal treatment, exclusion or preference on the basis of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, political views, national or ethnic origin or other similar circumstances that result in the setting aside or compromising the principle of equality.
