Our Ethics Representative

The role of the Ethics Representative is to strengthen the legal protection of employees and help uncover censurable conditions. Censurable conditions may include conditions that are in violation of law or Statnett’s Code of Conduct, poor working environment, harassment, negative culture or other harmful activity.


The Ethics Representative accepts and reports matters raised by anyone who has observed wrongdoing and/or mistakes committed by Statnett, our employees, our management or our suppliers. The Ethics Representative reports directly to our CEO Auke Lont and Statnett’s Board of Directors.


If you would like to ask our Ethics Representative any questions, or would like to report censurable conditions at Statnett or at one of our suppliers, you may choose to remain anonymous.
