We listen hard and talk straight, with no sugar coating and no filters. Trust is impossible without early, accurate and reliable communication, so we strive for “brutal” openness and honesty. All of us know where we stand, face reality and act on it. We are open to ideas from everyone, everywhere. This statement sums up one of the core values of Aker Kvaerner, a global provider of engineering and construction services, technology products and integrated solutions, spanning oil and gas production, refining and chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, mining and metals, power and pulping.
