We at Norske Backer take sustainable development seriously, and are concerned with taking care of society and the environment around us. In connection with this, we have developed a separate five-year sustainability plan for 2023 – 2028. The plan consists of both large and small goals, where some of the measures are completely new projects, while other measures are improvements we can make in existing operations. We work to contribute to the UN’s sustainability goals, which aim to eradicate poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. We believe that together we can achieve the goals of the UN.
Our products and services are based on the use of electricity as heating, rather than fossil energy sources such as gas and coal. We mainly use electricity for heating in our premises. We want to help other businesses with this transition, and offer the Backer Switch service for those who want to switch from fossil energy sources to heating solutions based on more renewable energy.
In order to contribute to achieving the UN’s sustainability goals, we have prepared a sustainability plan where we have carefully reviewed existing operations, and based on this have prepared 11 goals that we want to achieve by 2028. We have linked our internal goals to the UN’s sustainability goals, to ensure that our goals actually contribute to achieving the sustainability goals. To create transparency, we want to share our sustainability plan here.
