Ethics and values

KONGSBERG's Code of Ethics emphasises that all co-workers and the Group's Board of Directors shall maintain high ethical standards in the performance of their duties. The Code of Ethics will also be distributed to all our partners. We expect them to live up to the same ethical standards as we expect of ourselves.

Our values

Our values are normative for how we behave and work, and characterise our cooperation within and outside the company.

Shared values are essential for building a strong corporate culture and a good reputation. This helps us to bring out the energy in our organisation and support our vision: WORLD CLASS - through people, technology and dedication.


We are known for our drive and persistence. We always strive to meet our customers' expectations. We set ambitious goals for ourselves and are driven towards them with a clear and constant focus.

What we start, we finish. We do not give in.


Always performing better is a vital part of who we are. We constantly innovate and implement improvements in all parts of our business – from our products, through our processes, and on to our customers' experiences. 

We relentlessly pursue improvements, new ideas and new solutions.


Collaboration is fundamental to our business. We exchange ideas among ourselves, with our suppliers and partners, and with our customers. We work as teams, we share knowledge and we value team success – to the benefit of our customers and our own competitive edge.

We collaborate as individuals and as an organisation.


Our customers and partners can trust KONGSBERG to deliver, always. Dealing with KONGSBERG means dealing with reliable people, a reliable corporation and reliable products. KONGSBERG is a responsible organisation characterised by integrity and concern for health, safety and the environment. 

We are reliable people. We are responsible citizens.

Our vision

We strive to be WORLD CLASS - through people, technology and dedication

Our corporate vision reminds us where we are heading. It is our horizon. It is the point we always aim for in our work. While we're on our journey, our values are our guiding principles, the things we carry with us always. They make us what we are. They let us know how we should behave, as individuals and as a company. Only by following our values will we be able to achieve the objectives we've set out in our vision, and hence create value for our stakeholders.
