DONG Energy is one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe, and is headquartered in Denmark. Its business is based on procuring, producing, distributing and trading in energy and related products in Northern Europe. At present exploration and production activities are focused in Denmark, Norway, the UK (West of Shetland area), The Faroe Islands and Greenland. In the EITI Compliant country Norway, DONG E&P has reported financial data according to the EITI standard since 2009.
Charlotte Strand, Vice President and Head of Finance in DONG E&P said in its announcement: “It is part of DONG Energy’s policy to refrain from corruption and other unethical business conduct. For the same reason we joined the UN Global Compact’s ten principles covering the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption in 2006. Now as a next natural step we also support the EITI”.
With DONG, there are now 63 oil, gas and mining companies that support the EITI on the international level.
