He is also supporting IR at Aker Horizons, a planet-positive investment company dedicated to developing companies within renewable energy.
Aker Horizons was created as a new holding company for Aker Offshore Wind and Aker Carbon Capture. Aker Horizons is listed on Euronext Growth and is majority-owned by Aker, a Norwegian holding company engaged in offshore fishing, construction and engineering.
