The Norfund Way

The Norfund Way forms the basis of our corporate culture. It is an integrated part of the company’s Governance Framework, Code of Conduct, as well as the business processes. We aim to have a corporate culture which is specific and concrete, describing what types of attitudes and actions we believe best promote Norfund’s mandate.

The Norfund Way is an expression of how we act when we are working for Norfund, and at our best. The five action driven values describe the attitudes and behaviors we believe are most important to promote and deliver on Norfund’s mandate, starting with our individual attitude and ending with how we interact with our community.
