How do Norwegian energy companies handle corporate social responsibility abroad?
Panel debate on Norwegian business ethics
This page is not available in English. Below is the Norwegian page translated by Google.
Equinor, Statkraft and DNO take varying responsibilities outside Norway. In this panel interview, social anthropologists from the research project Energethics and business representatives will discuss how Norwegian energy companies understand and practice corporate social responsibility in their foreign operations.
The degree of state ownership in energy companies varies. Statkraft is state-owned, Equinor 67% state-owned and Det Norske Oljeselskap is privately owned. Does it make a difference whether a company is wholly or partly state-owned? To what extent is corporate ethics based on a "Nordic model for corporate social responsibility"?
The program starts with a presentation of the Energethics project followed by a panel debate.
In the panel:
Ståle Knudsen , Professor and Project Manager, Department of Social Anthropology, University of Bergen.
Frode Elgesem , Head of Norway's OECD contact point for responsible business.
Martin Norman , Manager of Sustainable Finance in Greenpeace Norway.
Morten Mikkelsen , sustainability advisor in Equinor.
Janis Kanavin , former head of coordinating unit at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the National Action Plan on UN Guidelines for Business and Human Rights.
Moderator: Ruth Astrid Sæter
