What we do
Our corporate social responsibility is closely linked to our mission of “Empowering people in their daily life”, our values and our core business. We believe that we, together with our users, can contribute to a more sustainable society in what we do every day.
- We empower people by providing transparent and secure marketplaces.
- We empower them by creating services that provide them with better deals.
- We empower them by defending freedom of the press and editorial integrity.
Connecting millions of buyers and sellers every month, we provide leading online marketplaces in more than 20 countries around the globe.
Our digital marketplaces such as Finn.no, Blocket.se help people buy and sell new and old things.
We invest in tech startups with great ideas and a disruptive mindset, helping entrepreneurs build market leading companies locally and internationally.
In addition, our growth companies such as Shpock, Let’s Deal and Compricer provide our users with popular, digital consumer services that make their everyday life a bit easier.
As the largest media group in Scandinavia, our world-class media houses continue to shape the media landscape of today – and tomorrow.
In Scandinavia, our media houses such as VG, Aftenposten, Bergens Tidende, Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet keep people informed and updated on important issues in society.
We believe that the secret to our users’ engagement lies in truly understanding their future needs. This means that we need to know what kind of tools and services people really want and need to make their life easier. We express these ambitions in our mission and our vision. This guides everything we do from our R&D, to new business ventures, recruitment policy and running our everyday business.
