Sustainability at Mer
Our mission to be good for the world is a core part of our DNA.
Backed by Statkraft’s 125-year legacy in renewables, we take sustainability seriously by putting it at the core of our strategy. We work with like-minded customers and partners and believe in EV solutions that must be sustainable beyond their primary purpose: to charge low-carbon vehicles with clean energy.
We are passionate about our solutions but also our environment, balancing where we need to go with what is right to do for our business and our planet.
Our sustainability management is based on three key principles:
- Risk-based: We seek to minimise the negative impact of our activities on nature, people, and societies and focus our efforts where the risk is highest.
- Shared value: We seek to maximise the positive impact of our activities on nature, people, and societies.
- Business integrated: We take a systematic approach, integrating environmental, climate, social, and human rights considerations into key company activities and processes.
