How do we contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals?

Affordable and clean energy, climate action and education are important contributions from NCS2030.

FNs bærekraftsmål

NCS2030 contributes to several UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) including SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy) by building new competence and research solutions for the Sustainable Subsurface Value Chain, SDG 13 (climate action) by providing solutions for a NZE society by 2050; SDG 4 (education) by educating the new generation of professionals for the energy transition; and also SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth); SDG 9 (industry, innovation, and infrastructure) by building competence for new business opportunities; SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) by providing solutions for low-emission and effective utilization of the subsurface; SDG 14 (Life below water) by safe subsurface storage of CO2/H2 and reduced water discharge to sea; and SDG 5 (gender equality) by setting the ambitious goal that at least 40% of center staff will be female.
