For Port of Aalborg, CSR is not merely three popular letters. CSR is an integral part of our DNA and our strategy, The Intelligent Port. The concept works from a holistic mindset, not merely to generate economic growth but to help create a good life for the people of Aalborg, both at work and at home. In order to achieve this, it is essential that the local community and environment function well. To this end, Port of Aalborg plays an important part as one of the area’s major economic operators – and we can, must and will take responsibility.
A successful business sector is the prerequisite for continued growth in the Aalborg area. It will help attract people to the area, lead to more welfare and increase perception of a healthy working life and private life. With this in mind, it is Port of Aalborg’s stated mission to create the best possible opportunities for companies to develop in the area, in order to generate more value-adding workplaces and, in turn, to contribute to Aalborg Municipality’s Business and Sustainability Strategy.
The focal point for development of Aalborg's business sector is an ability and will to form partnerships. Consequently, this plays a key role in all of our CRS initiatives. No partnerships, no development. Port of Aalborg is therefore involved in a variety of partnerships and collaborations aimed at making Aalborg an attractive place to live, work and develop a business.
Our CSR strategy is divided into three main focus areas: partnerships, green transition and the good life. With these three themes as our starting point, we implement targeted initiatives to secure advancement of the business sector, civil society and the environment, both locally and globally – to ensure that, as a community, we continue to develop, both at work and at home. Accordingly, in connection with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we focus in particular on six goals:
- 4: Quality Education
- 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
- 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
- 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
- 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
- 17: Partnerships for the Goals
The good life
