As a major player in our segment, we feel that we should be aware of our responsibility, therefore we take a number of measures to try to make a difference to society. Some of these measures are the creation of the Isiflo Job and Recruitment Centre, and support for young promising athletes. Through financial support, expertise and innovation, we want to make a difference to the society around us. We do quite a bit, but want to do even more in the future!
The Transparency Act
The Transparency Act entered into force in Norway on July 1st 2022. The Act requires a duty to carry out a due diligence assessment and to inform about the result of it.
What is the Transparency Act?
The purpose of the new Transparency Act is for Norwegian companies to get better
overview of the risk of violations of human rights and working conditions in the production of goods and services. The public is given access to information about
how businesses deal with negative consequences for fundamental
human rights and decent working conditions. The Norwegian Consumer Protection Authority is responsible for supervising the law.

All of our business associates must sign our ethics
guidelines / Aalbert’s Code of Conduct. Regular risk assessments and audits of our customers and suppliers are carried out.

What does the Transparency Act mean for us?
Isiflo AS already works with responsible purchasing as part of
our sustainability strategy. Responsible purchasing is primarily about daring to make demands, and following them up. We do this primarily through our ethical
guidelines in the Code of Conduct, and which are part of our purchasing agreements.
We also carry out audits to check that the Code of Conduct, ISO9001 and ISO14001 is being complied with by our suppliers.
Brass is mainly based on recycled material refined at European brass works. These have signed our ethical guidelines / Aalbert’s Code of
Conduct and thereby undertakes to follow these.
Composite is produced by one of Europe’s leading suppliers of
customer-specific special composites. These have also signed our ethical
guidelines / Aalbert’s Code of Conduct.
More information about ISIFLO’s compliance with the Transparency Act can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Isiflo has started the sustainability work and has as a start
achieved bronze in Ecovadis. We will continue to work on this and go for gold in 2024. You can read more about what this entails and measures to be implemented here
Isiflo job and recruitment centre; our history and our collaboration
We started in 2013 under the name NAV / ISIFLO Work Training Centre, but changed our name to ISIFLO job and recruitment center in 2018. The center had developed into a recruitment base in addition to a language and work training place.
It all started as a collaborative project between Vestre Toten municipality, at NAV Vestre Toten and Adult Education, and the company Raufoss Water & Gas – now ISIFLO AS.
RWG wanted an alternative to robotic assembly or manual assembly in a low-cost country. NAV wanted an arena for "Place and train".
As an idea, following a model from a sister company in France, the center was eventually started.
Today, the collaboration has been extended to include Isiflo AS, NAV Vestre Toten, Vestre Toten Adult Education, NAV offices in Østre Toten and Gjøvik, Learning centers in Østre Toten and Gjøvik.
Our goals and values
We work based on NAV's vision: We give people opportunities
The idea is to create a good job-qualifying arena for foreign speakers and possibly others who, for various reasons, are not in work or education.
A place where you can:
|Make valuable contacts with working life|
|Obtain a reference for future work|
|Get to know Norwegian culture and working life|
|Train on socialization and structure|
|Practice language skills|
