CSR and Sustainability

At GC Rieber, we believe in social responsibility and sustainable development within our entire business operation. We believe that companies can better support international sustainability programs by actively using their know-how and competence to drive economic, environmental and social development through own initiatives and efforts.

CSR Strategy

Our CSR strategy is an integral part of our organization and reflects our business goals. At GC Rieber, we involve and engage all parts of the organization in CSR work.

Each business area identifies business-critical sustainability goals and aligns them with key stakeholders’ expectations. Those goals are then turned into action plans which are communicated internally and externally, and monitored continuously. To enforce lasting, resilient partnerships, we have formalized a policy for responsible supplier management in our Code of Conduct.

GC Rieber Fondene manage philanthropic and charitable contributions to benevolent and social initiatives and a wide array of culture and science projects. 

For more information about our work with CSR and sustainability, see the relevant documents on this site or contact us.


The company shall treat natural resources with respect, never to be squandered. These resources are to be passed on to future generations in at least as good shape as they were in when we took over.
