PNO has signed and adopted the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs).

The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a set of principles offering guidance to businesses on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace, and community.

The WEPs are a primary vehicle for corporate delivery on gender equality dimensions of the 2030 Agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By joining the WEPs community, we signal a commitment to this agenda at the company’s highest levels and work to foster business practices that empower women. We will need to work together, across all Departments and Divisions, to ensure that we foster a truly inclusive, safe and productive workplace for all our fellow employees.

Jacob Lee Ørnstrand – CEO said: “We are delighted to sign up to these principles – we will be implementing them with concrete actions which are being rolled out as we speak. I would like all of us to uphold the shared values of gender equality and women’s empowerment. This is not only good for us individually, but also for the sustainability, innovation and productivity of our company.”
