We contribute to solving one of the largest tasks for society in our time.
One of the most important tasks for society in our time is the transition to renewable energy. As one of the largest energy and fibre-optic groups in the country, SEAS-NVE plays a decisive role in the transition to a green and sustainable society with a continued stable supply of energy.
Ever since the foundation of SEAS-NVE, a responsibility towards the society of which we are a part has been a cornerstone in our business foundation, and it continues to be so. This is reflected in our activities and is deeply rooted in our mission to create energy to live life.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a natural part of who we are.
A good working environment and high levels of safety for our employees, a high level of employee satisfaction, a sustainable consumption of energy and reporting of a large number of energy savings. These are elements of SEAS-NVE’s efforts and active corporate social responsibility.
We want to lead and take responsibility. It is part of our DNA, as SEAS-NVE is owned by our 389,000 members, who are also our customers, and who live locally in our supply area.
The UN Global Compact
In 2012, we took a decisive step in formalising our CSR work. We adopted the UN Global Compact, which is a global strategic initiative for companies who have committed to work with their activities, processes and strategies in compliance with ten principles.
The ten principles of the UN Global Compact cover areas within human rights, employee rights, environment and anticorruption. An initiative, which thousands of companies worldwide have adopted, and under which they have committed to report their CSR activities.
Structuring and formalisation
Although CSR is an integral part of our business foundation, structuring and formalisation of the principles for CSR in our business are still part of an ongoing process, which we constantly strive to improve.
In the years to come, we will work to structure and implement our CSR work. We believe that this work and our continued commitment to the UN Global Compact will contribute to further developing our company as the responsible pioneer and thus create continued value for our stakeholders and society.
Communication on Progress report
When a company has adopted the UN Global Compact, it must each year prepare a COP report (Communications on Progress). This report must be submitted to the UN Global Compact and is made public on the website of the initiative.
UN Global Compact – companies’ corporate social responsibility
The United Nations Global Compact is the largest initiative for companies’ corporate social responsibility in the world. It is an international initiative started by the UN with the purpose of involving private businesses in the solution of social and environmental challenges resulting from globalisation. The UN Global Compact enables companies all over the world to take an active part in the solution of these challenges.
