Statkraft shall exercise corporate responsibility in all its activities. In brief, this means that we shall deliver electricity based on environment-friendly sources of energy, use sustainable, safe and efficient production methods, and behave in a responsible and ethical manner.
This part of the annual report presents Statkraft's work, management system and performance in the area of corporate responsibility for 2015, describing challenges and activities within areas such as environment, health and safety, human rights, labour issues and anti-corruption.
Statkraft offers renewable and sustainable energy solutions, which is how we help meet one of the greatest challenges of our day: global warming. At the same time, all power production is associated with different forms of interventions in nature. Systematic environmental management in line with good international practice will minimise and compensate for the negative environmental impact of the Group's activities.
Safety is our top priority in Statkraft and our objective is zero serious injuries for our own employees as well as for contractor personnel, suppliers, partners and third parties. The desired safety culture shall permeate the entire organisation and be characterised by transparency and a desire to learn - both from our own mistakes and from successful improvement measures.
As a power producer Statkraft is involved in several development projects in different parts of the world. Most of these are in emerging markets, but there are also substantial developments in Northern Europe for different technologies. In the following sections we present examples of how we have addressed corporate responsibility in 2015.
