      "Forests are important for the Earth’s climate, and provide a livelihood for millions of people. The forests are also home to around 80% of the planet’s animal and plant species. Conservation of natural forests, especially tropical rainforests, is therefore crucial to limiting global warming, preserving natural diversity and safeguarding the rights of indigenous peoples. The combination of population growth, the desire for economic development and unsustainable agricultural methods is putting heavy pressure on Earth’s forest resources. Every year, vast forest areas disappear, often with significant negative consequences for local communities and indigenous peoples. The conversion of forest to production of agricultural commodities and paper represents a substantial proportion of global deforestation."

      "Participants will be nominated to participate in the share option programme in 2020 subject to the approval of the President and CEO, and the number of nominees will be approximately the same as in 2019, i.e. around 90 central management staff and key personnel. It is also proposed that the group be expanded by 10 – 15 younger talents. Nomination will not be automatic, so being nominated one year does not necessarily mean that the person will be nominated in subsequent years.Options will be awarded partly on the basis of position (estimated option value equivalent to 15% of basic salary), partly on the basis of a discretionary assessment of performance in relation to predefined long-term targets (estimated option value equivalent to a maximum of 15% of basic salary), and a discretionary assessment of achievement of sustainability-related targets (estimated option value equivalent to a maximum of 5% of basic salary). Sustainability related targets will be set and evaluated by the Board of Directors. On this basis, the outcome for participants will be an option value in the range 15 – to 35% of salary depending on performance. The option value will be calculated according to the Black-Scholes model"

            "Orkla’s activities potentially impact on forests through some of the raw materials that we purchase. This applies in particular to palm oil, soy, cocoa, cardboard and paper packaging. We seek to promote sustainable development, and have set a goal for ourselves to ensure that the most important raw materials and packaging that we buy are produced in a sustainable manner by 2020. As part of this work, we will make sure that the production of these raw materials does not contribute to deforestation. By deforestation we mean the conversion of natural forest into farmland or for other purposes. In assessing which forests should be conserved, due consideration must be taken of both biological diversity and carbon binding."
