Norsk Hydro ASA hosted its ESG Investor Briefing, as part of a joint PRI-Global Compact initiative designed to improve communication at the company-investor interface and ensure that sustainability performance is rewarded by financial markets.

During the 1-hour webcast conference call Andre Fey, Head of HSE & CSR; Rikard Lindqvist, Head of Investor Relations; and Kirsten Margrethe Hovi, Head of Viability Reporting presented the company’s ESG value drivers using a framework developed in collaboration with Global Compact LEAD companies and PRI investors, followed by a 30 minutes Q&A session for participating investors.

The Norsk Hydro ESG Investor Briefing is a part of a series of 10-15 pilot presentations by Global Compact companies in 2012-2013 designed to test and refine the ESG Investor Briefing concept and develop a framework complementary to sustainability reporting for corporate communication with the investor community on strategic ESG risks and opportunities.
