Corporate Social Responsibility

    We are committed to operational sustainability to maximize the ore resources by sophisticated mining methods in order to secure jobs and the mining operation over a long term.

    The local commitment is of great concern for us, since mining is a very fundamental part of the Rana municipality's history and Rana Gruber is one of the region's most important employers.

    We contribute as a sponsor for schools and sports clubs and at cultural events. We also participate in a number of development projects in cooperation with other local businesses and promote and finance research- and environmental studies along with various Norwegian research institutes and industry associations. We co-finance a professorship at NTNU-Trondheim (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), and we are part of the local incubator work through our ownership in Helgeland Industriinkubator.

    We are offering scholarships for students at high schools as well as offering apprenticeships in various fields. Our contact with students from universities and colleges shall promote the interest in natural science, especially in the areas of mining - and beneficiation techniques.
