Langset focuses on sustainability

Langset approved as a member of the UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is the UN's organization for sustainable business and the world's largest corporate initiative for sustainability. Once we have joined the UN Global Compact, we have committed ourselves to following the UN's 10 principles for responsible operation in the areas of human rights, working life, anti-corruption and the environment. The group has for many years focused on HSE and Quality. This provides the best starting point for the work that is already well underway to ensure that the sustainability perspective is incorporated in all parts of our business operations.

On Friday 1 April, Executive Vice President for HR and Sustainability Kirsti Harsvik was visited by Erik Kanck, Regional Manager for the UN Global Compact in Møre og Romsdal, and Oda Bjerkan, Head of Politics and Regions for the UN Global Compact Norway. They heard how the 20 companies in the Langset Group are already well under way with setting goals and concretizing the sustainability work. The group management and the general managers have actively contributed to the choice of 4 of the UN's sustainability goals based on an assessment of what matters most to our business and where we can make the biggest difference. The most important focus areas have now been chosen for the various companies for the next year, and the group is in the process of defining comprehensive projects in priority areas within Environment, People and Consumption. Erik and Oda were able to tell more about what the UN Global Compact can contribute, and the work that is now being done to create good competence arenas and networks within sustainability in the county.

We look forward to working with UN Global Compact Norway. Furthermore, we actively seek out local partners in sustainability, and are happy to share how we work with sustainability with others.
