Surrounded by forests nestled by the Oslofjord inlet, Oslo is a beautiful green city, with rich culture and historic sites. It is the capital of Norway, with a population of approximately 700,000 people, and is among Europe's fastest-growing cities. Despite the rapid growth, it has preserved its quiet small-town atmosphere and is one of the most walkable capitals in the world.
Oslo is blessed with many green parks, and the Oslofjord's waterways and islands are just minutes away from the city center, as are the ski slopes and forests of "Nordmarka." The forests are a popular destination for Norwegians and tourists alike, both in summer and winter.
Amongst the most popular attractions in Oslo are the outdoor statue park, Vigeland's park, the museum of the famous painter Edvard Munch and the opera house.
Oslo was named the European Green Capital for 2019 due to one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world, excellent public transport, and a genuine commitment to sustainable food production and green space. The city aims to cut emissions by an ambitious 95 percent by 2030.
Oslo is located at the northernmost end of Oslofjord and is surrounded by forests, green hills, and mountains. About 40 big and small islands are in and around the city limits. If you want to swim in the summer, this can be either in the sea or in one of Oslo's 343 lakes. You can travel by train from Oslo to Norwegian cities like Bergen, Trondheim, and Stavanger or Gothenburg and Stockholm in Sweden.
The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo and Oslo's city hall hosts the award ceremony every autumn. The Norwegian Nobel Committee selects the recipient, as outlined in Alfred Nobel's wishes. Visitors can learn more about the Prize at the Nobel Peace Center, located next to both the Hexagon Purus office and the City Hall.
Hexagon Purus in Oslo
Hexagon Purus’ headquarters is in Oslo, where we currently have employees working within Finance, People & Culture, Investor Relations, Technology Development and Corporate and Business Development.
Hi, my name is Kristiane Oline, and I joined Hexagon Purus in January 2022 as a Finance Controller. I joined Hexagon Purus because I believe in the company's vision and wanted to develop and be a part of a fast-growth and future-oriented company. Hexagon Purus is a place of committed colleagues, shared knowledge, trust, and personal and professional growth. The combination of a young, engaging, and trust-based working environment in Oslo creates a good atmosphere for facing and overcoming the challenges of the agile business environment we are operating.
My name is Gard, and I joined Hexagon Purus in the beginning of 2022 as a Corporate Development Director. While no day is similar in our growth-oriented business environment, my main responsibilities are focused on strategy, financing, and M&A. I joined Hexagon Purus because I believe we are a critical part of enabling a global transition to renewable energy sources, and have the product, people, and ambitions to reach our goals. The agile way of working, with empowerment and trust at the core, is something I value greatly, and that allows me to develop in my job. Combined with being surrounded by intelligent and positive team members, this combination makes Hexagon Purus a great place to work!
