Gassco’s sustainability efforts are closely tied to our strategic objectives and vision. We rely on the UN’s sustainability objectives to direct our work, adhering to global frameworks and best practices, while engaging in open dialogue and close collaboration with our stakeholders.
Gassco aims to ensure a stable energy supply, with our vision in line with the UN’s objective of making clean energy available to everyone. This aligns with specific targets and priorities that guide Gassco’s approach towards achieving the UN’s sustainability goals.
Sustainable operations and development
The UN’s sustainability goals and their ‘Global Compact’ are interconnected with our efforts towards sustainability and social responsibility.
As a state-owned company, Gassco is required to have an overarching plan for sustainable value creation. In Gassco, this plan is an integral part of our overall strategic work. We can contribute to 9 og the UN’s 17 sustainability goals. An overview of the specific measures and results we tie in to these goals can be found in Table [XX].
We operate gas facilities onshore and offshore, and transport natural gas to Norway and Europe. Our operations involve inherent risks of accidents and major incidents. While the oil and gas industry we operate in contributes to climate challenges, natural gas plays a significant role in enabling Europe to attain its Paris Agreement targets for reducing emissions.
