What is your favourite (work-related) memory from your time at Greencarrier so far? The 10-years jubilee was definitely a good time, but also that I won the Greencarrier Spirit Challenge in 2019, where I got the opportunity to launch an environmental project called “Green Contribution” in the name of Greencarrier. (Green Contribution is an initiative where we give all our customers in Norway the possibility to be part of an environmental project by paying a small fee. The first thing we wanted to do was to put so called ”Port Bins” in all the ports we operate in Norway, to collect garbage from the ocean surface.)
