Statkraft takes a comprehensive approach to security, preparedness and crisis management and follows international good practice. In Statkraft, the term security encompasses four areas; personnel security, physical security, IT system security and information security.

The security situation, as regards for example political instability, terrorism, sabotage and organised crime, is assessed in areas where Statkraft has a presence. Such assessments are made both locally and at corporate level.

Business units, country offices and power plants in Statkraft have established emergency preparedness plans in order to handle emergencies in a structured and systematic manner. The emergency preparedness plans are regularly revised, and regular drills are held on small and large scales.

Statkraft's buildings, plants and infrastructure are secured against unauthorised access. The purpose of this is to secure Statkraft’s assets against external threats and vandalism, but also to protect third parties against any safety risks in connection with Statkraft's installations. Statkraft is involved in development activities in countries and areas which can be politically unstable. This may result in an increased need for guards and security measures for people and assets. If the threat situation so warrants, this may involve armed guards. The provision of security will have to be in line with relevant principles of the Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights.

Statkraft’s work on information security will maintain confidentiality, integrity and access to the organisation's information. Statkraft has implemented a number of measures to strengthen security and improve the company's ability to detect and handle risks and incidents related to information security.
