Cegal hires sustainability profile Celise Skaar as global sustainability lead


Sustainability is fundamental to Cegal's vision of becoming a leading global technology company contributing to a more sustainable future. Hiring Celise Skaar as global head of sustainability further strengthens this area.

Celise Skaar is well known in Norway as a social debater because of her strong commitment to sustainability, equality, and human rights. She comes from a position as a sustainability advisor at BDO and has a master's degree in environmental and resource management from the University of Southern Denmark.

Dagfinn Ringaas, CEO of Cegal, says: “Celise is structured, analytical, and proactive and has a deep passion for technology and sustainability. At BDO, Celise has served as a key resource for the ESG team, engaging in a broad spectrum of tasks across fundamental sustainability topics. She has made valuable contributions to sustainability reporting in accordance with various standards such as GRI, CPD, and TCFD. Celise has handled due diligence assessments, prepared for upcoming CSRD requirements, and conducted several double materiality assessments for various clients.”

Leading on both technology and sustainability

Cegal's vision is to become a leading global next-generation tech company that supports a sustainable future through its specialization in energy. Therefore, the company has worked long and purposefully with ESG (environmental, social and governance).

Celise Skaar states: “I am very happy to have the opportunity at Cegal. Cegal has a clear and committed vision: to be a leading global technology company in the energy industry. At the same time, the company has set very ambitious goals within ESG. That makes the position exciting; I love working with technology and sustainability. I want to contribute to Cegal becoming a global leader in both areas.”

Dagfinn Ringaas adds, “The global role of the Sustainability Lead is crucial in embedding sustainability principles into our decision-making processes and daily operations. Skaar will work closely with line managers to ensure ESG principles are effectively integrated throughout the organization.”

Celise Skaar continues: “I also want to support our customers in their ESG work. Many people find that the concept of sustainability is not concrete and difficult to understand. I hope to bring a more pragmatic and practical approach to sustainability work and create concrete solutions that produce sustainable results.”
