Aker ASA (Aker) is an industrial investment company that exercises active ownership to promote profitable, sustainable and responsible businesses, driven by financial objectives and corporate responsibility. Corporate responsibility (CR) is part of Aker’s culture: we accept mistakes, but we expect honesty.
Aker’s vision is to exercise proud ownership. The company’s core values – to be results-oriented, opportunity-oriented, knowledge-oriented and cooperation-oriented – underpin its CSR work. Aker aims to function as a role model for the companies in which it exercises ownership through its principles and actions. Making deliberate socially responsible decisions enable us to achieve greater long-term profitability, while taking care of our environment. Responsibility must not yield to short-term gain, and this is reflected in Aker’s active ownership.
Aker’s most important social contribution is to create value by developing forward-looking companies that supply products and services in an environmentally friendly, ethical and socially responsible manner.
