                                           power generation: Power generation in the Group totalled 53.4
      sustainability                       TWh in 2008 (including Herdecke, Germany). This represents a
      statement                            19% increase compared with 2007 and a 54% rise compared with
                                           2004. The high production level in 2008 is attributable to the
                                           fact that this was the first full year of operation of the company’s
                                           gas-fired power plants in Germany, and to high levels of hydro-
                                           power production.




                                           greenhouse gas emissions: The Group’s total emissions of
                                           CO2-equivalents amounted to 1 605 000 tonnes in 2008. The
                                           significant increase compared with 2007 (292 000 tonnes) is
                                           primarily attributable to the fact that 2008 was the first full
                                           year of operation for Knapsack gas-fired power plant in
                                           Germany. Emissions from Knapsack account for 96% of the
                                           Group’s total CO2 emissions.

                                           allocation of value creation: 2008 was characterised by
                                           record value creation (NOK 43 566 million) and a record dividend
                                           for the owner (NOK 10 000 million). The high level of value crea-
                                           tion is primarily attributable to profits recognised in connection
                                           with the swap deal with E.ON AG (NOK 25 591 million), and high
                                           levels of power generation and solid electricity prices.




                                           Statkraft’s reputation: Statkraft is continuously working to
                                           reinforce its reputation and the Group ran two profile-raising
                                           advertising campaigns in Norway in 2008. Statkraft’s reputa-
                                           tion among the general public has been strengthened in recent
                                           years and in 2008 47% of the public had a good or very good
                                           impression of Statkraft. Statkraft’s reputation among profes-
                                           sionals remains high.

                                           Full-time equivalents at Statkraft: The Statkraft Group has
                                           grown significantly in recent years, not least internationally.
                                           The number of full-time equivalents increased by 40% between
                                           2004 and 2008, with 15% of the growth taking place last year.
                                           183 of the full-time equivalents are connected to the E.ON
                                           agreement. As of 31 December 2008 the Group employed staff
                                           in 15 countries, 15% of whom work outside Norway.




                                           Fatalities at associates: In 2008 there were nine fatalities
                                           at Statkraft’s associates, all at SN Power. Six of the fatalities
                                           occurred on the Allain Duhangan project in India and two fatali-
                                           ties occurred at the La Higuera and La Confluencia construction
                                           projects in Chile. A ten-year old boy also drowned in the inlet
                                           duct at a power plant in Peru. Statkraft is continuously working
                                           to increase understanding of safety requirements on all devel-
                                           opment projects. Two HSE reviews were performed on the Allain
                                           Duhangan project in 2008 and several measures have been
                                           implemented on the basis of the results of the reviews.

                                           Injuries and lost-time injuries: Statkraft’s target is to experi-
                                           ence zero injuries in connection with the Group’s activities. The
                                           Group’s injury statistics are currently improving and in 2008
                                           the H1 indicator was 4.6, while the H2 indicator was 12.1. The
                                           improvement is generally accredited to an increased focus on
                                           reporting and analysis of incidents and hazardous conditions,
                                           along with more stringent requirements regarding examination
                                           of hazardous conditions.

                  Definitions:
                  Serious environmental non-compliances: Violations of licence conditions, water flow regulations, legislation, environment plans and
                  self-imposed requirements which have serious consequences for the environment and/or the company’s reputation.

                  Less serious environmental non-compliances: Violations of licence conditions, water flow regulations, legislation, environment plans
                  and self-imposed requirements which have moderate or minimal consequences for the environment and no impact on the compa-
                  ny’s reputation.

                  Serious environmental incidents: Incidents which have serious or potentially serious consequences for the environment and/or the
                  company’s reputation which are not classified as environmental non-compliances.

                  There was one serious environmental non-compliance in 2008 when the water flow in a section of the Surna river was signifi-
                  cantly reduced following a breakdown at Trollheim Power Plant on 27 July. The Norwegian Institute for Environment Research
                  (NINA) estimated that around 20 000 salmon and sea trout alevin could have been stranded.

                  In addition, 27 less serious environmental non-compliances were recorded in 2008. The majority of these related to brief viola-
                  tions of minimum water flow requirements.
