The key to sustainable development

The key to sustainable development

Engineer and Technical Manager Robotics at Beerenberg Kristian Henriksen is an ambassador for the Federation of Norwegian Industries’ Norske Bærekrefter campaign.

Norway has built the world’s cleanest industry using renewable energy and is a key contributor to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
“We must not forget that Norwegian Oil and Gas has amassed a vast amount of expertise, and I believe this is the secret to sustainable development,” says Kristian Henriksen, a Beerenberg engineer and ambassador for the Federation of Norwegian Industries’ ongoing Norske Bærekrefter campaign.

Since 1990 Norwegian industry has reduced emissions by more than 40 per cent. None of that would have been possible without its workers. The campaign highlights the need to focus on industrial development if we are to overcome the challenges of climate change. One of 15 ambassadors for the campaign, Kristian Henriksen is an engineer and head of technology and robotics at Beerenberg.

A world-leader in sustainability
Kristian Henriksen is glad to be able to lend his voice to this important effort and hopes to reach as many people as possible with his message.

“It is important to me that more people begin to understand that Norwegian businesses can work together to become global leaders in sustainable operation. We must not forget that Norwegian Oil and Gas has amassed vast amounts of expertise, and I believe this is the secret to sustainable development,” he says.

He is passionate about sustainability and wants to help find new solutions to cut greenhouse gas emissions and improve human health.

“As an ambassador for Beerenberg and the Federation of Norwegian Industries I want to show how development and new technologies allow us to adopt methods that both increase performance and are good for the environment. Norwegian industry is working systematically and meticulously to implement good and sustainable solutions,” Kristian explains.

Robotics and new technologies
Sustainability is one of the cornerstones in Beerenberg’s strategy. The use of robotics and new technologies in industrial insulation and surface maintenance is an important area for the company in this respect.

“These two disciplines are vital to the durability of industrial structures and equipment. More specifically, Beerenberg is actively working on solutions for collecting and disposing of waste from surface treatment operations and on electrifying equipment to help cut greenhouse gas emissions and protect our workers’ health,” Kristian explains.

Sustainability means taking responsibility
“To me, sustainability means taking responsibility. It means meeting our needs without causing harm to others, to actively help find solutions to mitigate any negative consequences, and to always think durability over quick profit,” he says.
