Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Operating responsibly and with integrity, we are committed to contributing to the positive development of the societies we operate in, without compromising the interests of our owners. North Energy’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) will be a vital part of our “Licence to Operate” on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The International Standards organisation, ISO, has prepared an international standard for social responsibility (ISO 26000) that provides guidelines for how organisations can act in a socially responsible manner in line with the requirements posed by society. North Energy’s guidelines for societal responsibility are in line with the recommendations in ISO 26000.

North Energy is committed to:

  • Looking after the interests of our stakeholders: owners, employees, business connections and the different societies we operate in.
  • Conducting corporate governance in accordance with Norwegian corporate law and the Norwegian Code of Practice for Corporate Governance.
  • Having practices that ensure openness, anti-corruption and respect for human rights and standards for working life.
  • Operating responsibly and with integrity, such that we contribute to the positive development of the societies we are present in.

Health, safety and environment

North Energy will be a good and secure workplace with a positive working environment.

One of North Energy’s most important targets is zero discharges of hazardous chemicals to the natural environment. Pursuant to the requirements of the petroleum regulations, the company has actively discharged its compliance responsibility in all the licences where it participates. This means assisting the licence operator and providing a control and audit function under its joint responsibility for operations.

Employees have the opportunity to take exercise during working hours, as well as access to massage and ergonomic advice from a physiotherapist.
