Corporate social responsibility
Clean, renewable energy is part of the climate solutions of the future. Through its core business, Hafslund E-CO plays an important role on the road to a smart society, where the use of fossil energy sources is replaced by emission-free renewable energy. Together with the owner and local communities, Hafslund E-CO is working for a renewable and fully electric future.
Climate – the big picture
Hafslund E-CO is dependent on a good relationship with stakeholders and therefore works closely with the business 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 wants the entire organisation to be sustainable and strives to ensure that the Group’s impact on the environment and society is as positive as possible. To distinguish material areas related to corporate social responsibility from other important areas, the Group has conducted a materiality analysis. 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 our strategic goals:
- Reliable producer and supplier of renewable energy
- Ethical business conduct and competence in focus
- Environmental impact (including climate change, electrification an effect on the external environment)
- Responsible supply chain and local value creation
