Editorial: Tidings of joy?

"I think Norwegian companies have a big positive contribution to make, not least by virtue of their attitudes and standards for human rights and environment work", our new foreign aid minister Anne Kristin Sydnes told the paper Bistandsaktuelt.
Artikkelen er mer enn to år gammel. Ting kan ha endret seg.
"I think Norwegian companies have a big positive contribution to make, not least by virtue of their attitudes and standards for human rights and environment work", our new foreign aid minister Anne Kristin Sydnes told the paper Bistandsaktuelt.

At the same time, Norwegian offshore companies were complaining in a study published at the Offshore Strategy Conference in Stavanger. Norwegian environment and safety regulations make Norwegian companies less competitive, or so the refrain goes.

51% of the interviewed leaders of offshore companies think that Norwegian health and environment rules impair competitiveness, an 11% increase over the previous year.

45% think that environmental standards are hampering competitiveness. This is a 10% increase over the previous year, according to the newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv.

We have been told repeatedly that Norwegian companies take with them and spread the joyful Norwegian tidings of health, environment, and safety in their sojourns abroad. Precisely this is what legitimates the use of Norwegian aid money to support these ventures.

It would seem that Norwegian offshore companies are going abroad rather to shake of these joyful tiding. This, by the way, is an industry the foreign aid minister should know well, given her background from Statoil.
