Volue Joins the UN Global Compact
With sustainability high on the global agenda, more than ever, businesses are looking for ways to improve quality of life for people and the health of the planet.
Although there is a great deal a company can do on its own, the UN believes that taking a shared approach will get us further. This is what commitment to the UN Global Compact’s sustainability principles is about.
“Volue is a relatively new company and this was a natural step for us in our efforts to help realise the green energy transition. As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, we commit to doing business responsibly, by aligning our strategies and operations with the ten principles of the UNGC. We will also take actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have selected the three SDGs where we believe we can make the strongest contribution,” says Trond Straume, CEO of Volue.
“We are in the position to make a difference through the competence we have and through our products. We help transform the industries we serve,” says Ingeborg Gjærum, Chief Strategy Officer & Director of Organisational Development of Volue.
One year from now, we will deliver a Communication on Progress, a document describing our progress in each of these areas. The Communication on Progress will be incorporated into our sustainability report. You can find this report on our website and in the UN Global Compact’s database.
