Feeling blue?

Are you baffled by the consumer frenzy that comes with Black Friday? So are we! Therefore, we have decided to create Blue week – and you are more than welcome to join us celebrate and promote sustainability actions.

Feeling blue?

The pursuit of endless economic growth at the expense of the environment and society is simply not sustainable. We all need to act and build a more resilient and equitable future. Our individual actions matter and can have a collective impact. Every conscious action, no matter how small, has great potential and together we can create a more sustainable future. Let Blue week represent an opportunity to rethink consumption patterns, prioritize renewable energy sources, reduce waste, and invest in the well-being of people and planet. 

Time to rethink 

Blue is our favourite colour. It is associated with our planet, the oceans and water (- bringing us pure energy from Statkraft), and of course the Mer charging network accelerating the pace of electric vehicle infrastructure in Europe. As our company grows and continues to progress, it is increasingly important for us to embrace ways that put people and planet first. To us, Blue week is a chance to rethink the way we consume and go about our daily doings. It’s a time to be thankful of renewable energy sources, get educated and reflect on how we can be part of creating a more sustainable world.  

By embracing this perspective, we can make a positive impact on the planet and inspire others to join us in our efforts. So why not join us in celebrating Blue Week? 

Participating is free, easy and there are so many ways to get involved. We suggest you start by getting inspired and make a couple of conscious changes in your own life. We will share some information here and on Linkedin that we hope you find energizing and power you up for the task. 

And please, pass on the positive energy and inspire others to do the same!
