Top stories and data 2012

This year offered us many CSR activities. Here is a brief introduction to three significant activities: 

  • The largest solar cell system in the Nordic countries
  • Top Farm –Denmark's safest farm
  • Diversity – Women in management

We put the largest solar cell system in the Nordic countries into service

On Friday 17 August 2012 Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Chairman of Global Green Growth Institute and leader of the Danish centre-right liberal party, and Connie Hedegaard, EU Climate Commissioner, inaugurated the largest solar cell system in the Nordic countries placed on the roof of Topdanmark's head office. Around 100 guests attended the event. 

The plant consists of 3,042 solar panels which take up more than 5,000 square metres of space. We expect that annually the plant will supply around 15% of the total power consumption of our head office and will also reduce electricity costs by 15%. Thus the plant is a good business case helping reduce our annual carbon emission by approx. 600 tonnes.

Topdanmark has led the way
At the inauguration of the solar cell system Lars Løkke Rasmussen said in his speech:

”Topdanmark has led the way and set the good example which I hope many other companies will follow. Examples like this will drive the green switch-over as there are no snap solutions. If no one catches the ball, we will get nowhere. Therefore it is important that a large company like Topdanmark leads the way.”

Top Farm prevents agricultural damage

The first Top Farm was inaugurated in September. It is a farm close to the town of Skive in Jutland where a large number of loss prevention measures have been installed. Top Farm is intended for, among other activities, training Topdanmark’s certified sales representatives enabling them to better advise agricultural customers on loss prevention. A safe farm could help reduce the number of damage incidents for the benefit of the farmer, Topdanmark as an insurance company, the environment and society as a whole.

Focus on women in management

Topdanmark wants diversity – also at top management level. We have seen far more men than women in management positions in our company. Therefore we have worked on a large number of initiatives to encourage women's desire and motivation to go for top management positions.
