Fjordkraft is one of Norway's largest, and according to customers, most favoured power supplier. In addition to selling utility services to Norwegian households and businesses, Fjordkraft wants to create a market where climate neutrality is not only the ideal but the new standard. Fjordkraft's demand for climate-neutral suppliers went all the way to the top in a UN award, recently in the New York climate week.
The ambitious climate action “Klimanjaro” is a pun on the world's highest free-standing mountain, Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro might be difficult to climb, but with the right preparations, most people who try, succeed in reaching the top. By the same token, Fjordkraft's climate promise is an ambitious, yet totally feasible climate measure. Fjordkraft has been climate-neutral since 2007. “On its own, that is only a modest contribution to the ‘two-degree goal’, and for that reason we are now demanding climate neutrality from all our suppliers”, says Arnstein Flaskerud, Strategic Director at Fjordkraft.
“This is a fantastic recognition. We made a tough decision and stood by it”, says Flaskerud. “We are committed to climate measures having the greatest effect possible. When we face climate change that is accelerating, it requires solutions that do so too”, he says.
