Corporate social responsibility

We believe in CSR with a focus on environmental, social and financial responsibility. We aim to secure professional engineering and consultancy services with high levels of reliability and compliance. This means that we continuously strive to integrate and improve health, safety and environmental (HSE) considerations into our services and business processes, and that we report on NNE’s triple bottom line efforts.


At NNE we work hard to provide a positive and healthy working environment for our employees. We support diversity and equal opportunities for all, as well as the education of engineers via close collaboration with universities, PhD positions and internal education.


When it comes to the environment, we believe that sourcing, resource efficiency, and developing the right competencies are key. We support CO2 reduction by commuting together, conducting online meetings, and using environmentally friendly solutions when sourcing suppliers and vendors. In addition, to ensure our customers receive the best HSE solutions, NNE supports our employees in developing market-leading competencies within health, safety and environment.   


NNE delivers sustainable and competitive financial results. Our goal for 2021 is an operating profit margin of 10 percent. In 2020, we surpassed our goals with a record-high operating profit margin of 10.1 percent.

The United Nations' Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. The UN Global Compact calls for companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption and to take actions that advacne societal goals. NNE has been a member of UN Global Compact since 2008 to demonstrate our commitment for sustainability and the 17 sustainable development goals, i.e. the triple bottom line.

Certifications and policies

NNE wants to ensure a systematic approach to our internal processes regarding quality, environment and occupational health and safety. Our customers also expect us to have the relevant management systems in place. NNE has maintained certificates on all three aspects for years. In our quality management system we have described and detailed procedures to ensure we maintain focus and continuously improve in all three aspects. Additionally, every year an external bureau performs an external audit to verify that we practice what we preach. The last audit was in September 2020 and NNE has once again managed to renew our certificates.
