Technology and digitalization for a more sustainable world
Sustainability on the Intility platform
Sustainable thinking is not an alternative way of thinking. It is rather a prerequisite for healthy and responsible operations in the coming years. The UN’s sustainability goals (SDGs) are the world’s joint plan to eradicate poverty, fight inequality, and halt climate change by 2030.
Technological development is a crucial factor in creating a more sustainable world. In fact, every SDG can be linked to successful digitalization. Therefore, Intility, as a technology company, plays a significant role in contributing to sustainable development.
To Intility, sustainability is about how our business and operations impacts and creates value in all three dimensions of sustainability; the social, environmental, and economic conditions.

Intility's report on due diligence assessments
Intility falls within the scope of the Norwegian Transparency Act and is therefore obliged to conduct due diligence assessments in accordance with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises under Transparency Act Section 4. Additionally, Intility is required to publicly disclose a report on the due diligence assessments as stated in Section 5. The purpose of the law is to promote respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in the production of goods and provision of services by businesses, and to ensure public access to information on how businesses address negative impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions, as outlined in Section 1.
In short, larger businesses are required to actively work towards safeguarding and assessing risks related to human rights and working conditions within their own operations, supply chains, and business partnerships, as stipulated by the Transparency Act.
