High speed in Northern Norway

Northern Norway is the region of opportunity and is enjoying high economic growth based on the advantages that nature has given us. As the region's bank we want to contribute actively to the development of Northern Norway. Both as a bank for people and business, and through our social engagement and support for the region's cultural life, teams and associations.

Sport and culture are at the core of our social engagement and help to generate activities and diversity. It is therefore good to see that great ideas can grow into huge public celebrations. The Arctic Race of Norway is a good example of this, and we are proud to have been a team member since the very start.

As an official partner and sponsor of the green points jersey, we want to help ensure that the Arctic Race of Norway becomes a celebration of cycling for the entire family. More than 2,000 children took part in SNN Mini Arctic Race last year. This year we aim to repeat the success with bike races for children in Hammerfest, Honningsvåg, Alta and Tromsø.

Together we can make great things happen.

Tv2

TV 2 is Norway's biggest commercial broadcaster, founded in 1992 when the Norwegian government first allowed national commercial TV. The TV 2 Group transmits on one main channel, as well as a number of niche channels. Among those is TV 2 News, which has broadcast news 24 hours a day since 2007. That same year, TV 2 also acquired its own sports channel, TV 2 Sport. Since then TV 2 has expanded the Sport focus to three HD channels solely broadcasting English Premier League. These niche channels complement TV 2 Zebra that has broadcast entertainment and serials to the Norwegian youth since 2005. The film channel, TV 2 Filmkanalen, broadcasts films 24 hours a day. TV 2 launched its latest addition to the family in 2010: TV 2 Bliss with light entertainment, docusoaps and movies.

TV2 started broadcasting Tour de France live in 2003, and the event has since become a success on TV2.
