Nordnet in Society
Nordnet in Society
Nordnet in Society is our way to give back to society, and work for a more sustainable society.
Our framework let’s all employees develop their sustainable project ideas. We have defined three focus areas; sustainable savings & investments, diversity & equality and digital learning, and within these areas we run projects that will benefit the society, but also us as a company. The projects will generate value for savers, employees and society, while also adding value for our shareholders and while still trying to minimize our impact on the environment.
This is how we do it
All our employees have the opportunity to run their own project within Nordnet in Society. The process starts with our employees submitting their initiative proposals to the Nordnet in Society Board, which consists of various members from the organisation. The Nordnet in the Society Board then evaluates the proposals and decides if they are to be implemented. The Board also manages the strategy and the budget.
Where the idea comes from
Our Nordnet in Society concept is based on Professor Michael Porter’s theories of shared value, which, briefly, means that companies need to focus on delivering social benefit in a profitable way.
Reporting of Nordnet in Society
Each year, we prepare a report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the world’s most widespread framework for sustainability reporting. The report is based on the Nordnet in Society framework but also on other areas which are essential to our business.
The report is based on GRI Standards: Core option. Click here for our latest sustainability report.
Volunteer work for young entrepreneurship
Employees from our Oslo office have visited ninth graders to educate and inspire them in issues concerning investments, savings and private finances in general.
Volunteer work and financial support for kodcentrum
By supporting Kodcentrum, we help develop the programmers of the future. This makes perfect sense to us, since we will always depend on skilled IT staff.
Nordnet has organized two kidhackathons at the office in Bromma where we invited 35 kids to learn programming in the language Scratch. We were also volunteers at Stadshushacket that was organized for fifth graders by Stockholm City together with Kodcentrum.
Women and code together with Tjejer Kodar
Nordnet is a proud partner to Tjejer Kodar and together we encourage women to learn or deepen their knowledge about programming.
The collaboration with Tjejer Kodar is within our two focus areas in our citizenship programme: digital learning and diversity & equality.
