The foundation of Smart Choices

The foundation of Smart Choices can be found in the six focus areas, or long-term directions, of the NCC Sustainability Framework. Simply because sustainable business is smart business.

Focus area #3: Climate and energy – be climate neutral

Everybody knows mankind must cut greenhouse gases by using less, and cleaner, energy. At NCC, we replace fossil fuels with sustainable energy sources. We also support biodiversity with all the means we have. One step at a time, we are getting closer to being climate neutral.

Focus area #4: Materials and waste – close the loop of circularity

Circular economy starts with resource efficiency – use the raw material to the full, generate a minimum of waste and recycle what is left, again and again. And always choose non-hazardous raw materials. Every day, we keep working on closing the loop of circularity.

Focus area #6: Social inclusion – be an empowering partner in an inclusive society

Companies would not exist without communities. We need them: people, infrastructure, education, other businesses. We want to contribute to living communities. For us, that means creating means for a better quality of life, selecting local contractors whenever we can, promoting social diversity and equality and much more.
