KAEFER Energy supports Clean Shores

 
Oct 28, 2021

Young and old took part in the clean shore operation together with Clean Shores Norway at Hodnefjell, Mosterøy on 24 October.

 

30 people from KAEFER Energy, including family members, had a meaningful day at the beach.

Per Steinkopf, head of the HSEQR department in KAEFER Energy, says that it gave a good feeling to participate in the clean shores operation, and this is something we definitely will do agian in the future.

- The catch of several hundred kilos consisted mainly of tires, plastic packaging, ropes, fishing nets, Styrofoam, and metal. The place we chose to clean was suggested by Clean Shores and is a relatively new area for them as well. It is a beautiful area where a lot of garbage has unfortunately accumulated over the years, says Steinkopf.

After two hours of cleaning, there was a social gathering with serving of food and beverage. The children played together, and the adults chatted.

- In addition to cleaning the beach for garbage, it was simply good to be able to meet again, Steinkopf says.

In line with KAEFER Energy's sustainability strategy, the surplus food from the social gathering was immediately afterwards transported to the Food Center in Sandnes, which distributed this to people who need it.
