Open and transparent player in sustainability

Sustainability as part of our corporate governance

Our sustainability work is supported within the organisation through our sustainability strategy, which has been approved by the Board of Melbye. All our employees have a responsibility to contribute to this, so that we can comply with our action plan and sustainability measures. 

We focus on continuous improvements in everything we do, something that we have incorporated into our management system. By setting clear goals, and showing accountability in attitudes and actions, we strengthen our values: Team Spirit, Professionalism and Innovation

For several years, the Norwegian part of Melbye Group, Melbye Skandinavia Norge AS - have been certified in accordance with the requirements of the quality and environmental standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The quality and environmental management system, as well as the organisation itself, are built around our main processes. Melbye Skandinavia Sverige AS and Melbye Fiber Ltd., follow some of the same processes.  

In the long term, we aim to put in place our own sustainability report, highlight our contribution over time, as well as ISO certify all entities of Melbye Group.
