Our social responsibility

A sustainable Hafslund E-CO

The emission-free society of the future rests on two pillars: renewable energy-production and emission-free energy carriers. Hafslund E-CO’s vision, for a renewable and fully electric future, is built on these pillars. The Group’s core activity is to produce clean, renewable energy and deliver smart electrification solutions. Through our core activity Hafslund E-CO plays an important role on the way to a sustainable society, where the use of fossil energy sources is replaced by emission-free renewable energy.

Hafslund E-CO is dependent on a good relationship with stakeholders and therefore works closely with the corporate sector, municipalities and local communities. The Group’s activities help to secure jobs, safeguard society’s supply of clean energy and increase value creation. In this way, Hafslund E-CO creates value locally, regionally and nationally, while contributing to lower greenhouse gas emissions, which has a positive effect globally.

Corporate social responsibility – material areas

Hafslund E-CO’s objective is that the entire organisation is sustainable. We strive to ensure that the Group’s impact on the environment and society is as positive as possible.

Hafslund E-CO supports the UN sustainable development goals. The 17 sustainable development goals that entered into force in 2016, sets the agenda for a mutual effort towards a more sustainable world. All countries, companies and individuals are encouraged to do their part to achieve the 17 goals and eradicate poverty, fight inequality and stop climate changes by 2030.

The Group has conducted a materiality analysis within corporate social responsibility. The analysis is based on what is considered significant for Hafslund E-CO and equivalently for the Group’s stakeholders. The analysis highlights both risks and opportunities, and has identified four key areas crucial for attaining Hafslund E-CO’s strategic goals:
