Fair, sustainable – and accountable

Sustainability should always be a vital part of how we do business. It is at the foundation of every business decision, every technological development, every human factor and every client relationship. It is not about simply maintaining a position, it is about moving forward, innovating, developing. It is about seeing new opportunities and acting upon them.

Our world’s reliance on power is total. Like nothing else on earth, electricity drives our modern existence, but we cannot demand it at all costs. We have a responsibility to ensure that how we create it, deliver it and use it, is in the best interests of the future generations to come. Here we, as the link between power source and user, have a vital role to play.

Tangible actions

For us, it’s a journey – where the departure is taking on this responsibility to society by ensuring constant attention at every level; not just for the products, but equally on how we  make, install and decommission them with careful consideration for the safety of both people and the environment.

To navigate we have the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which outline a blueprint for a better world and provide us with tangible guidelines for our actions - from our factory floor in Karlskrona to the boardroom in Copenhagen, from the ocean floor to the Baltic 1 windfarm in the Baltic Sea and every cable, connection and termination in between.

We are constantly reducing the carbon footprint of our power cable solutions connecting the world. As a key provider of power cables, it is natural for us to drive our business sustainable and responsible.

— Alexander Kara, President and CEO
