Sustainability in Servi Group

In Servi Group we want to take our share of responsibility for a sustainable development. This is something to which the board, the executive management team and our owner (Ferd) are deeply committed. We do not take on this responsibility simply because it is expected of us, but also because we have a genuine interest in developing Servi Group in an increasingly sustainable direction. This interest is mainly driven by two factors: respect for future generations, and new, profitable business opportunities.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals 

As an industrial company, Servi Group recognises that we have an impact on the environment. However, by using our values (responsibility, innovation, robustness and flexibility) as a compass, and combine these with our extensive experience, we have excellent opportunities to make a positive contribution. Servi Group has selected four of the UN Sustainable Development Goals which we want to help achieve.    


goal 12

Sustainable Development Goal 12, which is about responsible consumption and production, forms a key element of Servi Group’s sustainability work. This is about Servi Group’s production methods and the products we offer. Many of Servi’s products help customers to reduce their ecological footprint, for example by reducing energy consumption and oil volumes, and producing less noise. Servi’s products also have long lifespans, can usually be repaired and upgraded, and have a high level of recyclability. 


goal 9


In order to deliver what the market wants, both now and in the future, while keeping our impact on the environment as low as possible, Servi Group has a high focus on development and technological solutions. This helps to achieve Sustainable Development Goal no. 9, which is about industry, innovation and infrastructure. As well as developing new products and services, Servi Group’s deliveries to the renewable energy segment is an important contributor here. 


goal 10


The third Sustainable Development Goal that Servi Group has selected is Goal no. 10, which is about reducing inequalities. To Servi Group, this is about more than simply gender equality. We want an inclusive working environment and society, where there is a place for everyone, and where diversity gives us a wide range of perspectives. This improves job satisfaction and makes us better equipped to face the challenges of the future. 

goal 13


The final Sustainable Development Goal which Servi Group is contributing to is Sustainable Development Goal no. 13, which is about stopping climate change. Although Servi Group’s emissions are small in the greater context, also we must strive to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions generated both by our own production and from our value chain. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is closely related to Sustainable Development Goals 9 and 12. 

Our sustainability focus areas 

Servi Group produces large quantities of products and systems for customers both in Norway and the rest of the world. Our value chain extends from the extraction of raw materials, via materials and components to production, and further on to the customer’s use and final disposal of the products. By mapping Servi Group’s impact and opportunities through the value chain, and performing a stakeholder and materiality assessment, Servi Group has identified five focus areas for our sustainability work. The sustainability strategy is closely integrated with Servi Group’s overall company strategy.

Provide the market with products and systems with a reduced environmental impact   

The products and systems which Servi Group delivers represent a significant part of our value chain. A significant part of their environmental impact occurs in the customer use phase. Delivering products and systems which reduce the customer’s environmental impact is therefore a very important focus area for Servi Group. This is an area where we see that Servi Group can make a big difference, compared to the rest of the market. 

The environmental impact from customer use occurs in several areas. Two significant impacts are hydraulic systems’ consumption of energy and mineral oils. Servi Group can deliver a range of different solutions to enable the customer to reduce their energy consumption. As well as reducing the environmental impact, the energy saving also means that customers have reduced their costs. Servi Group also delivers systems which are designed to use biodegradable hydraulic oil.   


Products and systems with a reduced ecological footprint: 

  • Systems with frequency converters (Servi Green HPU) - Reduced energy consumption and noise levels, reduced heat   
  • Servi Hybrid Drive - Reduced energy consumption and noise levels, space-saving   
  • Systems where electric actuators replace the hydraulic - Reduced energy consumption and need for hydraulic oil 
  • Servi Cyclone - Reduced oil consumption, space-saving 
  • Systemer designet for biodegradable lubricant - Reduces a ship’s fuel consumption, reduces/eliminates the need to clean with chemicals 
  • LED lighting for ships - Reduced energy consumption 
  • Servi CleanPump - Reduces infection, fish escapes and HSE risks

Servi Green HPU reduces energy consumption by up to 80 per cent, has lower noise levels and results in lower service costs.

Enter and grow in the renewable energy segment 

The transition to renewable energy sources is one of the biggest challenges facing the global community today. It is not just about a transition from fossil energy to renewable energy, but also about increasing total energy production. The additional factor of an energy crisis in Europe further reinforces the importance of this.   

Servi Group has many years of experience in the hydropower industry, delivering hydraulic controls for sluice gates and turbines. In recent years, Servi Group has also delivered increasing volumes of equipment to major offshore wind projects. In 2022, deliveries to hydropower and offshore wind accounted for 3.7% and 6.5% respectively of Servi Group’s total sales. Servi Group has ambitions to grow in both hydropower and offshore wind in the years ahead. As well as making an important contribution to society, helping to increase the supply of renewable energy, this also represents significant growth opportunities for Servi Group. Ensuring that the company is well established in multiple segments also makes it more robust.

Design and offer circular products and services 

The world’s natural resources are under enormous pressure, and the production of virgin materials also generates high greenhouse gas emissions. A circular economy in which materials are used efficiently, products have a long lifespan, and components are recycled and reused, is therefore one of the most important measures towards succeeding with the green transition. 

Servi Group offers a service called Servi Lifecycle Service (SLS), a service and maintenance function that take care of the products throughout their life cycle. This ensures that equipment benefits from maximum uptime and a longer service life. Servi Group’s products are robust and have a long service life and are designed to be easy to repair and overhaul. At their end of life, most of the products can be disassembled and the materials recycled. As most of the products are made mainly from steel, they have a high degree of recyclability. Some components can occasionally also be used in new products.   

In recent years, we have seen an increase in repairs and overhauls compared with previous years. It is obvious that customers are seeing the value of this, from both sustainability and cost perspectives. Besides, it is often faster for customers to have equipment repaired, rather than ordering production of new systems. Servi Group also offers customers the option of returning decommissioned products. This allows Servi Group to take an increased producer responsibility, and thereby responsibility for the entire lifecycle of its products.

Create a stimulating working environment that promotes equality, inclusion and diversity 

As the employer to more than 300 people, Servi Group believes in the importance of ensuring that all the employees are happy at work. Some of the prerequisites for this are ensuring that employees feel a sense of development and achievement and that they are a part of a diverse and inclusive environment. An inclusive working environment creates job satisfaction and confidence, and a diverse working environment brings a range of approaches, experiences and perspectives into the work processes.

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions 

As a production company, Servi Group’s energy consumption is significant, in our own operations and our value chain. Although Servi Group’s greenhouse gas emissions are small in the greater context, it is still important for us to take our share of the responsibility for ensuring that the world achieves the targets in the Paris Agreement. That is why Servi Group has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement. This is one of Ferd’s expectations, and we have also committed to this through our ISO 14001 certification. 

In 2022, we calculated Servi Group’s scope 1 and scope 2 emissions. Scope 1 are direct emissions from equipment owned or controlled by Servi Group. Scope 2 are indirect emissions from the energy we buy. In line with the Science Based Targets initiative, our target is to reduce emissions in scope 1 and scope 2 by 42% by 2030 compared to the base year (2022). 

As a production company, a large proportion of Servi Group’s emissions are in scope 3. Scope 3 are all other indirect emissions that occur in Servi Group’s value chain as a result of our operations. Making a start on calculating scope 3 is a priority area in 2023.
