Our Ethical Ombudsman

The role of our Ethical Ombudsman Silje Vegarud, 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 Ethical Ombudsman 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 Ethical Ombudsman reports directly to our CEO Auke Lont and Statnett’s Board of Directors.
