A good balance between operations, market positioning and new initiatives is important

Strategy and ambitions

KONGSBERG’s deliveries are often of strategic importance for our customers, and contribute to the satisfaction of important societal needs and development trends within sectors such as safety, energy, transport and climate. It is important for KONGSBERG to hold technological and product positions where we are either world-leading or have the potential to become world-leading in the long term. For KONGSBERG to be successful, a good balance between operations, market positioning and new initiatives is important. Our strategic and business related decisions are based on a culture that promotes high ethical standards.

KONGSBERG’s strategic goal is to utilise our technologies to develop sustainable solutions for today’s societal challenges. Our deliveries are facilitating a green switch in shipping, optimal management of the ocean’s resources, monitoring of the condition of the oceans using data and information from satellites, as well as greater security for society. This is positioning KONGSBERG as a highly attractive employer for the recruitment of new talent for value creation and growth going forward.
