Becoming an ESG leader

It is our ambition to be an ESG leader on the Norwegian continental shelf through safe, healthy, secure, environmentally friendly, and sustainable operations throughout the value chain. This goes hand-in-hand with efficient operations, well executed projects and strong drilling and well operations. We will achieve this through extensive collaborations with highly skilled partners and suppliers and dialogue with trade unions and the authorities.

Vår Energi supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and use them as a framework for our sustainability approach; to create value for our stakeholders, while respecting the environment, people and the society.

At Vår Energi, we have made the commitment to deliver a better future, working towards:

  • a stable and secure energy supply with lower greenhouse gas emissions
  • responsible management of natural resources
  • a material value creation for our owners and the broader Norwegian society – based on increased energy production for our customers in Europe.
