Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Electrification is vital in order to replace fossil energy with renewable, zero-emissions energy. By means of our activity, we enable Norway and our neighbour countries to increase the proportion of renewable energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time we must take responsibility for ensuring that the environment, society and social conditions are taken into consideration in our everyday working life.

One element of this is implementing climate initiatives in our own business and managing climate risk responsibly. At the same time, climate change is not the only global challenge we face on a day-to-day basis. Loss of biodiversity, social dumping and unethical business practices are examples of other challenges that we must counter through our work on corporate social responsibility.

We contribute to eight of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by performing our social mandate and which are relevant to our corporate social responsibility.

The following areas have been identified as the most important within corporate social responsibility:

  • Health and safety
  • Decent working conditions
  • Holistic environmental responsibility
  • Greenhouse gas reductions and climate change adaptation
  • Business ethics and anti-corruption
  • Transparency, dialogue and acceptance
