Sustainability is at the core of our values and our operations.
Global challenges are the starting point for a variety of business opportunities for KONGSBERG. Sustainable thinking is not an alternative way of thinking, but a prerequisite for sound operation over the coming decades. Customers expect it, authorities and owners expect it, and employees – not least the coming generation in the labour market – expect it. Sustainable operation will be necessary in order to obtain a “license to operate”.
Sustainable development is a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
KONGSBERG is committed to achieve a sustainable development in our operations, to strike a good balance between financial results, value creation and corporate social responsibility. The value created will benefit owners, stakeholders and society-at-large.
Business opportunities aimed at promoting a sustainable future shall be a part of KONGSBERG’s strategic assessments, and we will leverage our competence and expertise towards contributing to developing a sustainable future.
