Eivind Reiten: "Learning from our history"
"Hydro's history provides a source of both knowledge and inspiration. There is much in the company's past we can justly be proud of, though all of us shaping history today are aware of questionable past events, and the need for careful appraisal and some humility."
These are the introductory words to an article that President and CEO Eivind Reiten penned in connection with Wednesday's presentation of the three-volume history of Hydro's 100-year history, from 1905 until today.
The signed article appeared in the Norwegian business daily Dagens Næringsliv on Thursday, 22 September.
