We support gender equality

One of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that Landsvirkjun has chosen to focus on is SDG 5 on gender equality. Landsvirkjun has outlined a three-year project to show its commitment to supporting gender equality within the Company, and various measures have been set in motion.

Equality in corporate culture

Gender equality has been a cross-divisional, strategic priority at Landsvirkjun for the past few years.

The Company’s work in this area is driven by a grassroots movement that doesn’t just focus on the gender pay gap and gender ratio, but creates a pathway to ensure that gender equality becomes intrinsic to our corporate culture.

A three-year action plan has been developed for gender equality (2019-2021) and 17 improvement projects have been defined to achieve these goals, based on the results of an employee workshop.

Sustainable development

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a blueprint to promote environmental, social, and economic sustainability worldwide. Bringing these goals to fruition will require the concerted effort of nations around the world, and the active role of companies is essential.
