Corporate social responsibility (CSR)
Norske Skog is committed to contributing to sustainable development. Customers, suppliers and the world at large can rely on us. We take work on issues relating to the environment and social responsibility seriously.
Our core values of openness, honesty and cooperation as well as our policies and guidelines build on the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 10 principles of UN Global Compact.
Our business units are often the cornerstone of local communities, and many are the largest employer in their region. As well as providing both direct and indirect employment, these facilities work closely at the local level with communities to assist with other needs.
Social responsibility involves remaining sensitive to the needs of local communities and aware of the impact our operations have upon them. It means maintaining an open dialogue and responding with local measures. It also means showing respect for, and building upon, local cultures and traditions.
