At Port of Aalborg CSR is not just a three-letter trendy abbreviation - CSR is an integral part of our DNA. A holistic approach not only to create economic growth, but also to contribute to a safe and secure society with opportunities in life, balance, growth as well as a strong and inclusive community. A society that understands how to nurture and harness its potential and empower people and businesses to grow and fulfil their dreams.
Port of Aalborg’s CSR strategy is called Greater Society. We have framed all the CSR concepts and initiatives in Greater Society around five core areas which are specifically determined by our role as central infrastructure and our core businesses:
- Good Governance and Partnerships
- Green transition
- Human rights and work environment
- Good Life
Good Governance and partnerships are particularly emphasised because sustainability and value-creating development in general depend upon them. Greater Society is not created by us alone – it is created through synergies between the city, industry, research and the port, in which Port of Aalborg as central infrastructure and a commercial actor often forms a natural framework.
The UN’s 17 sustainable development goals
A natural part of this is active policy work and we concentrate our strategic business management around the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals. As an extension of our core areas, we have a particular focus on six selected goals:
- 4: Quality education
- 8: Decent work and economic growth
- 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- 12: Responsible consumption and production
- 13: Climate action
- 17: Partnerships for the goals
Our work with SDGs is also integrated into our certified management system (including CSR: DS 49001/ISO 26000).
