NFM’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, named Nordic Lifestyle, comprises a range of individual, community and environmentally-based projects that are intended to significantly improve the quality of life of both NFM employees and the wider community. From creating a better work-life balance and provision of regular health checks, to supporting the long-term unemployed to find gainful employment, the NFM Nordic Lifestyle aims to make a positive impact far beyond the factory walls.

With a flavor of our Norwegian origins, our holistic CSR strategy is expressed under the four categories:

  • Sports, ranging from individual participation in extreme sports to sponsorship of the local football team,
  • Nature, with a range of activities that favor environmental awareness and holistic well-being,
  • Lifestyle, such as promoting healthy eating through outreach initiatives in schools and the wider community, and
  • Equality of opportunity, including equal pay for equal work, and supporting the disadvantaged to access opportunities
