Energy plays a fundamental role in meeting the primary needs of society and securing international stability and prosperity. Protecting nature and the environment while covering the world’s energy needs is a challenge that can only be solved by the collaborative effort of nations, businesses, organizations, political bodies, and civil society.
Sustainability is an essential part of how we conduct our business in Vår Energi. We realize that our activities have both positive and negative effects on the communities and environment around us. Our aim is to create long-term value through managing resources in a responsible and sustainable manner.
Our main ambitions:
- 50 % reduction in Scope 1 GHG emissions from operated assets in 2030*
- Safest operator on the NCS
- 30 % gender diversity in the entire organization by 2025

- Zero discharge of environmentally hazardous substances
Vår Energi has adopted the United Nation’s strategic vision for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with particular attention to SDGs where the company can make real and concrete impact.
To support our ambition of being an ESG leader, we have established a sustainability framework with strategic focus areas that cover our main impacts.
