- It's nice to be here at the top of the facility, says Ojiambo after climbing onto the roof of the water reservoir. I have learned a lot about new and upcoming technology, we have talked about how the concrete? here emits less CO2, and about the trucks that run on biogas, which also results in low emissions. There is a lot of reuse and recycling here, up to 99 percent, she says.
She is also interested in other sustainability goals that NRC Group Norway works on, for example social responsibility. Among other things, most of the Polish concrete workers in the company have taken professional certificates as practice candidates, paid and supported by the employer.
- I have heard about how NRC Group really invests in training the workers, giving them opportunities to develop in their profession and giving them a direction. It is a good approach to running good projects, in addition to giving the workers greater opportunities.
Learned from the visit
Sanda Ojiambo watched with interest and asked several questions when she inspected the construction site at Tryvann.
- Part of this visit is to see how the UN's sustainability goals make sense for businesses in practice, and I think this project has shown us that you can be environmentally friendly and at the same time do good work. This is just one company. We need more companies that make decisions both in the short and long term like this one do, she said.
