Beluga’s objective is to improve quality of life by promoting environmental conservation and ecologically sustainable development. We do this by arousing interest in environmental issues in collaboration with the government and government ministries, municipalities, companies and individuals. A good environmental policy leads to improved well being of employees, a stronger image of companies and institutions and thereby increased profitabililty which increases competitiveness of the company in question. Each entity is assessed independently and hence it is not possible to talk of "standards". Beluga concentrates on assessing the environmental policy of entities rather than the environmental management of them.
