“We are incredibly proud to be rated A in this year’s ESG 100 analysis. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, and sound ESG reporting is vital to us. We analyse risks and impacts within all sustainability aspects, and we are open about what we still need to improve. Our placement in the top category on the list reflects that sustainability is a priority in everything we do”, says Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec Solar.
Scatec Solar is an integrated independent solar power producer, delivering affordable, rapidly deployable and sustainable clean energy worldwide. While contributing to reducing emission is at the core of Scatec Solar’s business model, sustainability is also integrated in all operations and is closely monitored and reported.
“We are constantly working to improve our sustainability efforts and reporting and we have colleagues working systematically with sustainability in all of our projects. Last year, we ramped up our climate reporting by reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project. This year, we are setting ambitious emissions reduction targets and expanding our climate risk work”, says Roar Haugland, EVP of Sustainable Business & HSSE.
