Our Story


The story behind OUR name

Our roots originate in Northern Europe.  Vanir, in Norse mythology, was a group of  gods responsible for love and prosperity and subordinate to the warlike Aesir. The Vanir fought for equality against the Aesir. After a war between the two groups equality was granted and the Vanir then sent their gods Njörd and Freyr to live with the Aesir. 

Today, two of Vanir’s most successful companies are called Freyr and Njordr. Both lead the way in green initiatives.


Our ecosystem

At Vanir utilizing synergies is a part of everything we do. We are creating an ecosystem where the guiding principle is to develop value in partnership with others while solving the climate crisis. We aim to master how value is created by always taking into account how this affects the natural environment and society.

We search for partners with a shared vision of helping solve the climate crisis. We realise this is only achievable if the organisations bring complementary skills and resources to the partnership. We will partner with both public and private organisations to make this happen.
