Aker Horizons is an owner of industry-leading companies driving decarbonization and sustainable development, and a developer of projects converting renewable energy into clean hydrogen and its derivatives. Sustainability at Aker Horizons encompasses the investments we make, the projects we develop, and our engagement with the companies we own. We are committed to develop a portfolio of companies and projects that are planet-positive.
The concept of planet-positive recognizes that climate action and sustainable development cannot be reduced to a simple, one-dimensional approach.
To qualify as planet-positive, the activity must have a significant positive impact on one environmental objective, without causing serious adverse impact on another environmental objective or have an adverse social impact. Environmental objectives may include for instance climate mitigation, pollution reduction, circular business models or biodiversity impact.
Our sustainability ambition is anchored in our strategy and embedded in the highest level of governance in our organization. Aker Horizons’ sustainability policy summarizes our commitments across four key pillars:
Aker Horizons has set ambitious and time-bound strategic targets for our positive impact through the expansion of planet-positive activities.
