Here are our sustainability experts

Renate Klemetsen Jakobsen and Alexander Eckhoff Wang are NorSea’s experts on sustainability. But what does it really mean?

-We have worked actively with sustainability for many years. Surveys show that the measures are effective, we are performing well in many ways. At the same time, we want to get better, every single day. Therefore, the job of defining our sustainability goals is important, says Renate Klemetsen Jakobsen, VP Quality & Compliance in NorSea Logistics.

Safer, smarter and greener are mantras in NorSea; three strong motivations in everything we do.

Safer, smarter and greener are also guiding our work to ensure sustainable operations, which is evident through initiatives such as electrification of trucks and investment in shore power at our bases.

Four UN targets

Renate has, together with Alexander Eckhoff Wang, Sustainability Manager in NorSea, recently established a clearer framework, direction and roadmap for sustainability work in NorSea in the future. The goal is to make our operations more climate efficient, develop new business areas – and contribute to our customers becoming more environmentally friendly through sustainable logistics.

These are the four sustainability goals NorSea focus on in particular:

The measures have been chosen because they are relevant to NorSea – and because we believe we can make a difference. Both for ourselves – and for our customers. We want to make logistics safer, smarter and greener.

At the same time, the group is working on a number of other initiatives that fall under the sustainability strategy, namely to facilitate a low-emission scenario for the entire value chain.

Offshore wind and Jelsa
NorSea’s offshore wind investment is well known. Together with skilled partners, we are working to establish ourselves as an operator of offshore wind parks in the North Sea. We are also working to establish a new, pioneering industrial plant at Jelsa in Ryfylke forassembling wind turbines.

The project at Jelsa is a good example of NorSea facilitating the offshore wind industry to choose low-emission solutions for foundation fabrication and installation using concrete produced locally.

“We are also considering building solar panels at our bases for use by both customers and ourselves. We work with hydrogen production at the bases, how we can cut down on energy consumption. NorSea works with a number of exciting projects in the field of sustainable energy”, explains Alexander Wang.

Renate and Alexander are both responsible for – and education in – sustainability, but what does it look like on their own home turf? That – and much more – you get answers to in the video below
